Kwon Alexander's Announcement Is Next Level Recruit-Fu

The reveals thus far on National Signing Day have been lackluster. We have seen no puppies as props, no grand hat tricks, and saddest of all, no riding onto stage on the mascot itself. We did have Kwon Alexander, though, who play-faked with an Oregon sweatjacket before unveiling LSU suspenders and a purple and yellow bowtie.

We rate the reveal by its key elements after the jump.

Oregon Jacket Fake: +30 points. Misdirection is a core concept of any well-designed play, something Kwon clearly understands.

Reference to Lebron James: -20 points. He's young, and we'll show him leniency by only docking twenty points here.

Jacket Removal: -10 points. Good concept is nothing without quality execution, however. The delay almost scuttles the play from the start.

Procural Of Hat To Fit Over Baby Afro: +20. Preparation is essential for success. With an easy tug over the head, it's apparent Kwon thought this through and rehearsed. Next level talent with next level study skills and forethought? Blue-chip talent, indeed.

Total score: 20 points on a scale we just made up.
