James Cox visits SEC school

James Cox, wide receiver from Northridge-Tuscaloosa, Ala., endured his team's first loss of the season last week for the region championship. The Jaguars will need to bounce back after 2014 standout Bo Scarborough suffered a season-ending injury. Cox talked about rebounding and visit to Alabama.

"I think when Bo went down on Friday it surprised everyone," said James Cox. "Everyone has stepped up at practice. We are going to play for him. He wants us to still go out and play ball. That's what we are going to do."

Northridge will host Hazel Green in the first round of the playoffs next week.

Cox has earned early scholarship offers from Mississippi State and Purdue. Several SEC schools including Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Vanderbilt have shown interest.

"I got a chance to go back over to Alabama on Saturday," Cox said. "It went really good. I enjoyed myself. Those rivalry games bring a different feeling out there. The rivalry is very traditional.

"We talked to all the coaches. I talked to coach Mac [Jim McElwain], coach Sal [Sunseri], coach Cochran and coach Saban. They were saying to keep our head up. They said one loss shouldn't mess up our whole season."

The class of 2013 prospect will return to Bryant-Denny Stadium November 5th.

"The game is going to be so live," Cox said. "I am high on both Alabama and LSU. I don't know what's going to happen. I am ready to see who will take it all. The teams are very similar. They have great defenses and a good running back. It's going to be a war."

Cox will visit Auburn this weekend.
