Scouting Report
Big, strong receiver who can break tackles after the run. Is able to go up and get the ball with a defender on him. Will need to become a better blocker. Not the fastest track guy, but has football speed. Solid route runner who can surprise with his quickness. Aggressive to the football and can sometimes be a bit of a bully in that regard.

Immediate Projection
The plan is to start Alexander out at H-back, much like Noah Brown in 2014. Alexander and Brown are unlike the other OSU H-backs because of their size, which makes it a possibility that Alexander plays in 2015 as Brown's "back up". The more likely scenario, however, is a redshirt.
