WMBD/WYZZ-TV - CHICAGO, Ill. - After months of speculation, Cliff Alexander made it official.
Alexander, the All-American basketball player out of Chicago Curie High School, committed to Kansas on Friday. But he didn't sign a National Letter of Intent so, technically, he's leaving the door open for options.
The 6-9 forward was the top recruiting target of John Groce and the University of Illinois. As Alexander made his college announcement, he reached for an Illini baseball cap then grabbed the Kansas version.
