LA’s Kirk gives nod to UNM

-A A +A
By The Staff

Los Alamos High School’s celebrated big man, Alex Kirk, has decided to play his collegiate basketball close to home.

Kirk, the 6-foot-11 star center for the Hilltoppers’ boys basketball team has verbally committed to the University of New Mexico, according to news reports today.

Greg Remington of the UNM athletic division said this morning, “We can’t comment about that. The early signing period is a month away, Nov. 11-18. Only after he signs and our rules people have determined that it is valid, can we confirm that.”

Kirk, who led Class AAAA in scoring in 2008-09, was heavily recruited by the Lob  os’ staff, including head coach Steve Alford, starting in his sophomore season.

With Kirk committing to be a Lobo, he will be the second notable Los Alamos big man to move on to Division I men’s basketball this decade. Chris Jackson, who was listed at 7 feet during his prep career, signed to play with the University of Utah after his senior year of 2001.

For the Lobos, Kirk is an excellent pick-up. The Lobos have been without a true center for several years. Kirk will likely see minutes in a relatively short period of time playing with UNM.
