Chicago Curie big man Cliff Alexander won’t visit Michigan State on an unofficial and is done with his trips.
“No, he’s not going to MSU so we are done with the away visits,” his mother, Latillia Alexander, told SNY.tv.
She added that Memphis is due in today for a home visit, Illinois is coming tomorrow and Kansas may also come at some point.
The 6-foot-9 Alexander is down to a final five of Illinois, DePaul, Michigan State, Kansas and Memphis and will announce Nov. 15 on ESPNU.
He took his last official to Illinois this past weekend and enjoyed it. He has also visited DePaul, Kansas and Memphis officially.
Despite rumors that the family wants Alexander to stay close to home at either DePaul or Illinois, his mother says she has no preference.
“It doesn’t matter to me how close or how far, I just want him to be happy,” she said.
