Four-Star Fullback Feels The Love At Auburn

Big-time fullback prospect Chandler Cox talks about his trip to Auburn and why he felt the love from the Tigers.

Apopka, Fla.--One of the nation's top fullback prospects, four-star Chandler Cox made his second visit to Auburn on Saturday as he took in the annual A-Day game at Jordan-Hare Stadium. With over 70,000 fans in attendance he got to see what football on the Plains is all about, even in the spring, and he loved it.

"It was my second time and my mom's first time," Cox said. "I got to experience kind of a game day atmosphere and it was awesome. The Tiger Walk is out there and people were going crazy. I loved it. Going to the stadium and being around the players was awesome.

"The fans are all in," he added. "It's nothing but football there. It's awesome to see everyone that shows up, and that's just a spring game. It was almost full and I was looking around and taking pictures and sending them out to my friends saying ‘this place is crazy'. As I was walking in people were yelling my name and saying to come to Auburn. That's pretty crazy."

There is no question that replacing Jay Prosch is one of the biggest question marks for the Tigers because of his ability to handle several different duties in the blocking game as well as being able to be a viable receiver outside if needed. Watching closely to see the Tigers use two or three different players in that role on Saturday, Cox said he liked seeing his spot so involved.

"What really stood out to me was how they used the three-back and the H-Back," Cox said. "He's in there every play. That's really important in my decision because not a lot of schools out there use my type of position. That's a big thing for me there is that position."

Hoping to get another look at Auburn sometime this summer or next fall, Cox said he wants to get his dad up to see the campus and facilities and also talk to the coaching staff as well before making a decision before his senior season. With the Tigers in his top group along with Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky with Alabama, BYU, Ohio State and others in the next group, Cox said Auburn is definitely on his mind following his trip.

"I don't really have a top, but they're definitely one of my favorite schools," Cox said. "It's just the atmosphere and the people. Just the campus is beautiful. It's everything really. I love it. I want my family to see it because it's definitely one of my favorite schools."
