54 Days to Purdue Football: Alexander Meredith

Let’s meet the new walk-on linebacker.

NCAA Football: Foster Farms Bowl-Arizona vs Purdue Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

Today we have a first time walk-on that went through spring practice for the first time back in April.

Alexander Meredith - So.

Pebble Beach, CA (Stevenson HS)

5’11”, 220 pounds

Linebacker

2019 Projection: Deep Reserve at linebacker

The first thing I want to observe is that Meredith is from the same high school in California that my freshman year roommate was from (Shoutout, Tae-Sun Kang!). Robert Louis Stevenson HS is a private boarding school in Carmel, CA that both of Clint Eastwood’s daughters attended. It costs $67,500 a year to go there, so out of state tuition is likely not an issue for Alexander.

Here are some of his highlights, as in his senior season he had 73 tackles and 18 sacks. He also played running back and lacrosse, and he has a few top 10 marks on the school’s track and field list as well.
