100 Days to Football Time in Oklahoma: #74 Marcus Alexander

The Path to Norman

Marcus Alexander, a Sunnyvale, Texas product, started seeing offers during his junior season. Texas-based programs comprised most of his offers at first. May 2018, he received an OU offer and took a visit to campus.

After that, it wasn’t long before the Sooners won his commitment over programs like Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Missouri. 

After his commitment, TFB offered some thoughts on the new Sooner, including, “He obliterates defensive linemen play in and play out.” 

Career so Far

Alexander took a redshirt season in 2019 and did not play.

Current Profile

2020 Season

The 2020 offensive line will boast plenty of experience along with talented young players like Alexander, usually projected as a guard on the Bedenbaugh line. The depth on the line this season is expected to be at a high level, which will make playing time hard to come by. Still, Alexander is a fantastic talent and will certainly be part of the rotation in his second year in Norman.
