Clemson cornerback Mackensie Alexander is a game-time decision for Monday night’s national championship game due to a hamstring issue, according to several reports.
Alexander is one of the top cover corners in college football, and if he’s limited or held out of Clemson’s tilt with the Crimson Tide, it won’t be good news for the Tigers.

Just got a text message from Mackensie Alexander. Confirms hamstring issue. Team will evaluate him during warmups to determine effectiveness— Marty Smith (@MartySmithESPN) January 11, 2016
If active, Alexander will likely spend most of his time on Alabama freshman wide out Calvin Ridley, who has emerged as one of the best young receivers in the game in recent weeks.
Clemson star defensive end Shaq Lawson is also considered to be a game-time decision for the national championship game.
