The highly explosive Alexander broke his arm in the third game of last season while playing against Prolific Prep on The Grind Session.
“I went up for a layup and a kid had hit me out the air,” he said in June. “And I come down, landed on my arm and it broke….I missed the whole season and I was out for like three months.”
Now he’s back, having played in several events this summer.
Alexander still needs to shed more weight after putting it on during the time he missed.
“I look kind of big,” he said. I’m in the gym every day to lose weight. It’s going to be a process to lose weight and get back to how I used to play and just keep winning.”
Coaches are still fascinated by Alexander’s upside.
“I’m feeling everybody that’s recruiting me,” he added. “I just want to go where it best fits for me.”
Wherever he goes, he plans to be a “playmaker, handling the ball, giving up good passes, scoring when my team needs to me score and just being a leader.”
