February 25, 2010 – Defensive End Frank Alexander played his Redshirt Freshman season at Defensive End in the National Championship game against the Florida Gators where he had a sack and several hurries on QB Tim Tebow. His Redshirt sophomore season he was part of a 4 man rotation at Defensive End, something Head Coach Bob Stoops likes to do to keep his Defensive Line fresh. Frank played the minutes of a starter. Frank is entering his Redshirt/Junior season as a starter at Defensive End because Auston English (6-3, 255) is off to the NFL for the Draft in April. The other Starting Defensive End will be Potential ALL Conference SR to be Jeremy Beal, who (6-3, 255), and will be drafted in 2011. The third Defensive End will be talented sophomore RJ Washington (6-4, 250), who will be drafted one day. Oklahoma might have the best Defensive Ends as a group going into the 2010 season. Frank has really super God gifted feet because of his old basketball playing days at Powerhouse Southern Lab HS. Frank has a chance to be a high NFL draft pick one day, because of his hard work, and his ability to rush the passer. Frank is a passing rushing specialist where his first step off the ball and spine move allows him to rush the passer. Frank has a long frame and could weigh in the 270 range in the NFL. Frank is currently playing at 250 to 255, and can run in the low 4.6 range. Think about this for a second. Frank and Chad Jones, DB from LSU, and LB Hugh Patin (Baylor) all played at the same time on defense at a Class 1 A school Southern Lab . Chad has a chance to get drafted in the First Round of the NFL draft in April and Patin has a chance to get drafted in 2011.
