Kentucky signed eight players from south Florida in its 2017 recruiting class, and the Wildcats are at it again for the class of 2018.
Kentucky received a commitment from three-star wide receiver Marvin Alexander, from the Fort Lauderdale area, on February 21.
“I can’t put my finger on it, but I know they have got a lot of players from down this way,” Alexander told GN. “They recruit guys that we play with and that we know and they convince us that Kentucky is a good school, and when we go and visit, we just fall in love with it.”
Alexander (6 feet 3, 175 pounds), from Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna Prep, chose Kentucky over offers from Syracuse, East Carolina, Southern Miss and UCF, among others.
“I always wanted to do that, commit early to a school, and I think Kentucky is the best choice,” Alexander said. “I just wanted to commit and get it out of the way. I enjoyed the recruiting process, but it’s a lot at the same time. So I just wanted to make a decision early.”

While Alexander has committed to Kentucky, “I’m open to any school that wants to recruit me.”
So, how does Alexander describe his game?
“I like to be physical,” Alexander said. “I don’t do too much talking, but I’m just physical at what I do.
“My favorite player is A.J. Green. I like him and try to play like him.”
