A sign-in sheet at the indoor facility listed 35 scouts credentialed to attend Alie-Cox’s workout.
“We expected this many, especially, I had had a lot of teams call me early — some teams knew I was a free agent way early in the process, like when me and my agent knew,” Alie-Cox said. “I think they were surprised at some of my measurements and the way I was moving — probably the biggest thing was how well I caught the ball. I got good feedback from that, and I haven’t really heard too much, because I’ve been busy doing meetings right after.”
Listed at 6 feet 7, 250 pounds, Alie-Cox ran through standard offensive pro day drills and a few defensive sets for the teams who wanted to gauge his potential as a defensive end. A low-post player at VCU, Alie-Cox averaged 9.5 points in 35 games this season.
“We haven’t really thought about contracts or anything like that,” Alie-Cox said after the workout. “We wanted to get the workout out the way before focusing on anything else.”
