Southeast Missouri lands pledge from Alex Caldwell

Since landing the head coaching job at Southeast Missouri, Rick Ray has had a knack for landing under-the-radar talent consistently. Tuesday evening, the Redhawks dipped into the state of South Carolina and landed a highly regarded point guard prospect in Alex Caldwell.

"I felt like Southeast Missouri was the best fit and they made it feel like home," Caldwell told HoopSeen.com.

Caldwell, a 6-foot point guard, has played with the Upward Stars for the past few travel seasons. During that time, he has impressed on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit, as well as a number of HoopSeen events.

An explosive scorer, Caldwell is a handful to guard. He does a great job of getting downhill to the basket and putting pressure on the defense. He also can provide problems from the perimeter, as he is a consistent shooter from behind the arc. 

Caldwell averaged 13 points per game on the Adidas Gauntlet Circuit.

He chose the Redhawks over scholarship offers from Rhode Island, College of Charleston, Mercer, Winthrop, Charleston Southern, Eastern Carolina, and Austin Peay, among others.

Caldwell is the Redhawks' first commitment in the 2018 recruiting cycle.
