Unbelievable frame and athleticism to start. 6-foot-9 and a dominating track record one-on-one. Despite towering over his competition, he still finds a way to stay clean and crisp in his movements while also keeping tremendous pad level on first contact. Tends to rely on his reach and frame to make the outside block, putting himself in a tough position to recover if things go sideways. Leans into his defender, which could make it easier on a swim move or chop-rip to get away from him.

OVERVIEW: One of the biggest prospects in the draft also happens to be one of the most complete. Alt has a little bit of everything: size, quickness, athleticism, smarts and youth. All combining to produce a nearly can't miss prospect. Nasty streak to him as a finisher and not afraid to put a defender in the ground. In his final season with the Fighting Irish, he earned unanimous All-American honors, and was a finalist for the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy and was a team captain in 2023. An all-around career for an all-around prospect.
