BRENHAM, Texas -- Brandon Alexander
finally made it official.
After speculation ran rampant on Tuesday evening about where the 6-3, 230-pound defensive end from Brenham might end up - Texas or Texas A&M - the senior made it official on Wednesday morning, signing with Texas A&M.
Alexander, who had offers from several BCS-conference programs, had narrowed his choices to Texas and Texas A&M heading into this week. He said on Wednesday that he informed both coaching staffs of his decision on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, in northwest Houston, Cypress Creek running back Jermichael Selders
officially switched, signing with Baylor. Selders had originally committed to West Virginia in August but began wavering on that decision in the last week. He joined La Porte running back Anthony Webb
as the second Houston-area running back to sign with Baylor.Sam Khan Jr. is a reporter who covers Greater Houston area high school sports for the Houston Chronicle. You can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow him on Twitter at twitter.com/skhanjr.
