4-Star Fullback High On Auburn After Visit

Heavily-recruited Chandler Cox discusses his latest visit to check out Coach Gus Malzahn's Tigers.

Apopka, Fla.--Class of 2015 fullback prospect Chandler Cox spent Saturday at Auburn, his third visit to the AU campus this year, and the four-star recruit said the trip went well.

"It was a great visit," he told Inside the Auburn Tigers. "It was my dad's first time to visit Auburn so it gave him a chance to see everything."

The 6-2, 220-pounder from Apopka High School found a lot quieter setting than his previous visit when around 70,000 others attended Auburn's spring football game.

"Each time I come to Auburn I love it more and more," Cox said. "Being around the coaches it just feels right. Going around the campus, as I was telling them, I know my way around."

Commenting on his Saturday visit, the fullback said, "We watched film. Coach (Gus) Malzahn showed us the things they want me to do and the opportunities I have at Auburn.

"They showed me the dorms and the new Rec Center, which were amazing," the prospect added. "I hadn't seen that yet. I toured the other facilities and it was a great day overall."

Cox and his dad made the trip to Auburn during a break in Apopka's spring practices that began on May 1st and are scheduled to run all month. The prospect said his team is pushing hard in spring drills and he expects it to be strong for his senior year.

He noted that he doesn't have any more spring recruiting visits lined up at the moment, but noted he and his father will be headed out to Albuquerque in June to see the fullback's older brother, Dakota Cox, who earned Freshman All-America honors this past season.

"I got to see him play on TV, but I didn't get to watch him in person," Cox said. "I hope to be able to go out there and see him this season."

A prospect with more than 20 scholarship offers, Cox made it clear that he really likes Auburn.

"Auburn is definitely my school--I really love it," he said, noting that he plans to make a decision on his college choice before the start of his senior season. "I don't know when," he pointed out. "It could be pretty soon. It could be this summer or even in the spring."
