"The visit to Alabama was great," said James Cox. "We were there checking out practice. We watched practice on the balcony with Ed [Marynowitz].
Cox is eager to attend the Tide's camp this summer and work with the Alabama coaching staff.
"Coach Nussmeier said he likes me a lot," he said. "Coach McElwain was the one recruiting me. Coach Nuss wants to see me at camp. He is a really nice guy. From everything he has shown me I think he will keep that offense going really good."
Cox discussed a couple returning players who caught his attention from Alabama's 2011 BCS National Championship team including a former teammate and a new receiver on the Tide's roster.
"It's funny seeing Vinnie [Sunseri] out there doing his thing," Cox said. "He is doing a really good job. It makes you want to get out there and work. He puts confidence in you knowing that if you work hard enough you can be out there. That's where I want to be.
"Amari Cooper really impressed me. We camped together last year. He is killing it out there as a freshman. He is going to be a beast."
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound prospect has scholarship offers from Mississippi State and Purdue. He is receiving increased interest from Louisville, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Cox, along with teammate Bo Scarborough, will visit Mississippi State this weekend.
