Alexander appeared in 34 games in which he played at Virginia Tech. In three seasons, he collected 91 tackles (56 solo), 17 passes defensed, seven interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble.

In 2017, Alexander appeared in nine games in which he played registering 27 tackles (23 solo) a sack, a forced fumble and one interception. He recorded a season high nine tackles versus West Virginia.

Alexander was born on Nov. 7, 1996 and attended Independence High School in Charlotte, N.C.
