Now this is some kind of stat line from Kansas basketball signee Cliff Alexander.

On Thursday night in Chicago, Alexander finished with 30 points, 24 rebounds, 15 blocked shots and three steals in Curie High’s victory over Dunbar. It’s the 15 blocks that really stand out for Alexander, a 6-foot-8 power forward who is ranked as the No. 4 overall recruit in the nation by

It’s the kind of number makes you question whether Dunbar had any players above 6 feet tall — or whether they considered just trying to shoot from the outside after Alexander’s 10th or 11th block.

Anyway, it was a dominating triple-double from Alexander, who joins Findlay Prep swingman Kelly Oubre in the Jayhawks’ 2014 recruiting class. Alexander chose Kansas over in-state choices Illinois, DePaul and others in mid November.
