Meridian Community College has locked in one of South Mississippi’s premier soccer talents.

Vancleave’s Alex Strong signed with the Eagles on Thursday during a ceremony at his high school.

Strong has been one of the Bulldogs’ leaders since his freshman campaign and has scored 10 goals as a senior midfielder. He also plays club soccer for Gulf Coast United.

Strong was also a reliable player for the Vancleave football team, serving as both punter and kicker.
