Fargo, ND (WDAY Sports) - Saul Phillips told us after the season ended that the number one priority for NDSU this offseason was to find a Point Guard.

Today they may have found their answer as 6'2 guard Lawrence Alexander verbally committed today to the Bison.

Alexander hails from Peoria, Illinois. He spent the past season at a military academy in Wisconsin, but told me he knows he can help NDSU.

“They tell me the situation I'm going to be in. They tell me make a run to the tournament and they are lacking a point guard. They need a guard to break down a defender, look for teammates, and create his own shot. The teammates just seemed real cool.”

Alexander told me he had strong interest from Boise State and Hawaii.
