Texas adds three-star wide receiver Jaden Alexis to 2021 recruiting class

Posted August 8th, 2020


Texas’ 2021 recruiting class added three-star wide receiver Jaden Alexis on Saturday. The product of Monarch Prep in Pompano Beach (Fla.) is the 17th member of Texas’ current recruiting class and the second wide receiver, joining Casey Cain. Alexis is the fifth out-of-state commitment for the Longhorns in the 2021 recruiting class. 

Alexis is a speedster at 6-1 and 175 pounds. He was credited with a 4.41 laser-timed 40-yard dash. He also competes in the 100- and 200-meters. Alexis is also the student class president at Monarch. He played both ways as a junior, but his collegiate upside is at wide receiver where he caught 49 passes for 894 yards and eight touchdowns. Alexis held 36 offers. 

Alexis comes from a proven football bloodline as the son of Rich Alexis, who starred at Washington University before playing for multiple teams in the NFL.
