Mackensie Alexander, a top cornerback recruit from Immokalee (Fla.) High School, has decommitted from the Tennessee Volunteers, per a report from Rocky Top Talk. Alexander had originally committed to the Volunteers in January. This move was anything but a surprise in recruiting circles.
Knoxville is a long way from Immokalee, and the Volunteers are certainly out of sight and out of mind down there. Add that to that the fact that Alexander's recruitment has really blown up of late, with offers from Alabama, LSU, Florida and Florida State coming, and it's easy to see why Alexander would want to check out more of his options. Look for Alexander to hit the camp and visit circuit this summer.
The 5'11, 175 pound Alexander is widely regarded as one of the top five cornerbacks in the country. He combines good speed with excellent toughness and competitiveness, harassing defensive backs into poor routes and mistakes.
