Just got word from Real Salt Lake’s media relations staff that first-round draft pick Jean Alexandre will be in town on Tuesday and made available to the media at Rio Tinto Stadium at 4 p.m. The coaching staff has delivered high praise the rookie forward since drafting him last week, but it will be interesting to hear what Alexandre says about being the 12th overall selection in the MLS SuperDraft.
The entire RSL team will report for physicals on Jan. 29 for the starting of training camp. The team’s first game will be on the road during the weekend of March 28. Its home opener is slated for April 2 against defending MLS Cup champion Columbus.
