Per Tom Miller’s Twitter — @tommillergf: Kurt Alexander, a PG who verballed to NDSU, decommitted and was rumored to be interested in UND has plans to go to Drake — now this is a strange one.
Usually, guys decommit and immediately pick somebody else up but apparently, that’s not the case here. Did something happen to turn him off? Problem now for NDSU is it leaves the Bison looking for another point guard for help.
Is it panic situation? Certainly not; not with Nate Zastrow returning. And banking on a junior college transfer is not recommended per Kolpack’s Romani Rule that dates back to the Ray Giacoletti Era.
Drew Lundberg could probably fill in at the point although he seems more of a shooting guard. Mike Felt should be back at full strength as the starting shooting guard and the status of Freddy Coleman, although looking favorable, is still not a 100 percent certainty.
I haven’t seen many decommits at NDSU over the years and now the big question: why? He told the Des Moines Register "I just don’t want to live in North Dakota" but Drake is no Cayman Islands either. If he didn’t want to live here, why consider UND? The word I’m hearing is the kid is simply a little wishywashy.
