Alexander's three years in Norman were incredibly productive as he amassed 292 tackles. After arriving from Booker T. Washington High School in Tulsa, OK, Alexander was forced into action as a true freshman and never looked back. He was a 3 year starter and had been a stalwart in the middle of the Sooners defense for the past 3 seasons.
The Sooners will now be looking at replacing three linebackers for next year (Striker, Bond, and now Alexander).
We wish nothing but the best for Alexander as he transitions to the next part of his life. Here's to a long and productive NFL career.
