National Signing Day paid a visit to the campus of Tipton-Rosemark Academy this afternoon. TRA Baseball Head Coach Brad Smith presented his standout senior Connor Alexander for his signing ceremony. Alexander inked a letter of intent to play at The University of Memphis.
Alexander joined his older brother Cale, as Rebels to sign letters of intent to play baseball. Cale is a member of the Christian Brother University Bucs.
It was Connor’s final season playing along side his brother at TRA were he started to gain attention from college scouts. As a sophomore, the younger Alexander was a key bat and emerging arm helping TRA reach the State Tournament.
Last season he was a leading hitter and one of the best pitchers. With his natural talent and ability, Memphis Head Coach Daron Schoenrock was one of the coaches heavily after Connor.
Schoenrock enters his 10th season at the controls of Memphis Baseball armed with a club featuring both experienced players and a talented group of newcomers. Schoenrock led the Tigers to the program’s seventh 30-win season and second straight since joining Conference USA in 1995. The Memphis Tigers will be a part of the American Athletic Conference this upcoming season.
Alexander will become a Tiger in the fall of 2014.
