CJ Bolar exits, Tyrell Alexander enters. Vanderbilt received good news on Sunday April 19th as Alexander announced his plans to finish his collegiate career with the Commodores. The grad transfer WR adds depth to the Vanderbilt roster after Bolar entered the transfer portal.
The 6’1” wideout will look to crack Vanderbilt’s rotation, as he started playing on special teams after some athletic flashes as a redshirt freshman wide receiver, including a 56 yard catch vs Kansas in 2017. He was a 2017 First Team Academic All-Big 12 and a two-time Second Team Academic All-Big 12 in 2018 and 2019.
Alexander is a former 247 3* recruit and Vanderbilt hopes his WR talent clicks on West End. Alexander chose Oklahoma State over offers from Tennessee, Oregon, Iowa State, and Arizona State among others.
Due to a loaded receiver room, Alexander made the switch from WR to LB following the 2017 season. He hauled in a 56-yard catch from backup Taylor Cornelius in garbage time in addition to a 3rd down conversion against Baylor.
Tyrell Alexander will join a loaded WR room including Cam Johnson, Chris Pierce, Amir Abdur-Rahman, Devin Boddie Jr., and Jayden Harrison. Whoever starts at QB for the Commodores will have a plethora of options at their disposal.
