Adonis Alexander’s agent confirms ex-Virginia Tech CB’s move to NFL supplemental draft

If there were any lingering doubts, Adonis Alexander‘s time in Blacksburg specifically and college football in general is officially officially over.

Earlier this week, Virginia Tech announced that Alexander “is no longer participating in team-related activities related to the... football program.” It was subsequently reported that the cornerback was likely headed to the NFL’s supplemental draft after his academics-related departure from the Hokies.

Thursday night, Alexander’s agent confirmed on Twitter that his newly-minted client will indeed be a part of the July 11 NFL supplemental draft. Additionally, the agent confirmed that Alexander will take part in a Pro Day at his now-former university.

Alexander played in 34 games the past three seasons, including 15 starts. Two of those starts came in a 2017 season that saw the Charlotte native credited with 27 tackles, two tackles for loss, a sack, an interception and a fumble recovery. His five passes defensed were tied for fourth on the team while his four pass breakups were tied for fourth.

Twice during his time at Tech, Alexander was suspended for off-field issues, including one connected to a weed arrest.
