This Season

The starting offensive line has a lot of pieces seemingly settled; Chris Murray is back to start at right guard, with newcomer McKade Mettauer likely to start at left guard. Behind them, Alexander could very well be the next man up. Others including Brey Walker and Kyle Ergenbright will bring competition for snaps. However, Alexander is in a great position to earn significant minutes coming off the bench at guard this season and be well placed to potentially start in 2023.
