As a Recruit
Bear Alexander attended five different high schools in his career. Alexander started his playing career at Terrell (Texas) High, where he earned the District 8-5A defensive newcomer of the year honors as a freshman. Alexander then transferred to Dallas Skyline, but it was ruled he transferred for athletic purposes and was ineligible to play his sophomore season. Alexander then moved to Denton (Texas) Ryan for his junior season. After being ruled ineligible for the first part of the season, Alexander led Ryan to the Texas Class 5A Division I state title. He then transferred to Fort Worth (Texas) Brewer in April of his junior year after his guardian accepted a coaching job at the school. But that final transfer was not approved by Texas’ University Interscholastic League, so Alexander eventually ended up at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Alexander plans on majoring in sports management in college. His mother is Debron King. His father, Tony Jones, attended school at North Texas.
