IU adds JUCO lb/de

Jacarri Alexander, a linebacker/defensive end out of Iowa Central Community College, has chosen to play at Indiana over Pitt and Kansas State.

The native Floridian is the 19th recruit for IU’s 2012 class and plans to enroll in January.  Alexander, a 6-foot-1, 238-pounder who purportedly runs a :4.61 in the 40 and combines good strength (360-pound bench) with the speed, prepped at Auburndale High School in Winter Haven. We’ll be contacting his coaches and hope to provide more details on the Scoop later today.



  1. If the reports are true, he has the size and speed to be an effective linebacker in the Big Ten. I hope he stays healthy, because IU will need help next fall.

    Two or three more solid JC recruits should help quite a bit.

  2. According to his coach his best position would be an outside LB in a 3-4 D. But since they run a 4-3 they play him at DE. Think it will depend on where our biggest need is next year as to where he plays. It will be nice for the coaches to have that kind of versatility.

  3. I really like the size and speed of our sophomore DE Javon Cornley. I think he has the speed and athleticism to become the next best DE at IU.
