Vols add '13 CB from Florida

The University of Tennessee landed a commitment for their 2013 class Wednesday with the addition of defensive back Mackensie Alexander (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee). Alexander confirmed via text message that he did indeed pledge to the Volunteers.

“Mackensie is a tremendous player,” said Jerrod Ackley, Immokalee’s football coach. “He’s a kid that can play in press coverage and in zone coverage. He’s a terrific kick and punt return guy. This kid can do just about anything on the football field.”

Alexander, 5-foot-11 and 175-pounds, already has scholarship offers from teams like Florida, Miami, South Carolina and Ohio State.

“Everyone will offer this kid,” Ackley said. “He’s just a tremendous football player.”

Tennessee now has two commitments for their 2013 class. The other is offensive line prospect Austin Sanders (Cleveland, Tenn./Bradley Central).
