2022 defensive end, Jeremiah Alexander, is one of the 2022 recruits, who holds an offer from Alabama and he was also one of the recruits, who were on Alabama’s campus on Saturday.
The Tide offered Alexander on Feb. 21. The 2022 defensive end plays for Thompon High School in Alabaster, Alabama, which is the former high school of Alabama quarterback, Taulia Tagovailoa. Alexander said he feels appreciative of the time Alabama’s linebacker coach Sal Sunseri spends with him when he visits.
“Coach Sal Sunseri and I have a great relationship,” Alexander said. “Even though I am an underclassman, he makes sure he spends time with me.”
Alabama has hosted Alexander several times since they offered him. SEC Schools, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Tennessee have also offered Alexander.
The Tide were able to host multiple recruits and targets from multiple classes for their second cookout of the Summer. Alexander said he felt the atmosphere in Tuscaloosa was welcoming.
“The atmosphere was filled with positivity and excitement,” Alexander said
As a freshman, Alexander helped anchor a Thompson defense who made it to the state championship on last season. Alexander used his 6-2 218-pound frame to do most of his damage rushing off the edge. Thompson also allowed Alexander to cover some slot wide receivers on occasions.
Alexander said he is most looking forward to helping Thompson keep their momentum from last year coming into this season.
“I am just looking to play with the team and lead the defense to state,” Alexander said.
Alabama does not have a commitment from a 2022 recruit at the moment, but they are sitting in a good position with Alexander. The fact the Tide offered Alexander early in his recruitment process and has continued to host him should help the Tide in the future.
