Blaze Alexander Transfers To IMG Academy
November 3, 2017
Another top draft prospect is transferring to IMG Academy, FL. SS Blaze Alexander, formerly of Bishop Verot HS, FL, makes the trek up I-75 from Fort Myers to Bradenton as we head into the offseason. Ranked No. 82 in the PBR Draft 100, the South Carolina recruit has athletic actions in the infield and a plus arm. There is some length to his swing and he tends to spin off, but he trusts his hands and they’re quick through the zone. IMG Academy will be a one-stop shop for scouts in the spring with Alexander joining fellow infielder Bryce Reagan and RHP Levi Kelly.
