Alexander Enjoys Memphis, Illinois Up Next

Chicago Curie big man Cliff Alexander enjoyed his weekend visit to Memphis, and will trip to Illinois next weekend in what could be his final visit.

“It was great, I had a great time in the three days we were there,”  Alexander’s mother, Latillia Alexander, told “We visited family there.”

Latillia said that Memphis coach Josh Pastner spoke about how he would use the 6-foot-9 Alexander if he came to school there.

“He said he loves him, he’ll take care of him and the program he runs there will be great for him,” she said.

Huntington (W.V.) Prep shooting guard JaQuan Lyle also took an unofficial to Memphis. The two have talked about packaging but that remains uncertain at this point.

“I’m not sure,” Latillia said.

Next up is an official to Illinois next weekend, which could be Alexander’s final trip.

He is also considering Kansas, DePaul and Michigan State.

“Just Illinois this coming weekend,” she said. “We’re undecided on [visiting] Michigan State. It will be an unofficial [if he goes]. We’re undecided on that one.”

Alexander is slated to announce Nov. 16 on ESPNU.

Memphis also landed a pledge from 6-7 JUCO forward Trahson Burrell, who visited this weekend, too.
