Former Ohio State tight end A.J. Alexander will be playing for his third college football team this season.
After playing one season at Slippery Rock, a Division II school, last year, Alexander will continue his college football career at Gardner-Webb, a Football Championship Subdivision program, this season. Gardner-Webb announced the addition of Alexander to its roster on Friday.
A three-star recruit in Ohio State's class of 2015, Alexander caught four passes for 27 yards while playing primarily as a blocker as the Buckeyes' No. 2 tight end as a redshirt freshman in 2016. He was placed on medical scholarship by Ohio State, however, after missing the 2017 season with a torn ACL.
Alexander transferred to Slippery Rock and caught 11 passes for 89 yards and three touchdowns for The Rock last season, but completed his degree in sports industry at Ohio State this summer, graduating from the university last weekend.
Now, with one remaining season of collegiate eligibility, Alexander will look to finish his college football career strong at Gardner-Webb, which is located in Boiling Springs, North Carolina.
