“It was incredible,” Cox said “Tiger Walk, all the fans screaming, it was one of the best experiences of my life. I loved being in the stadium for warmups, the sun setting and everything, it was awesome.
“To see a game and the atmosphere, all the tailgaters, it was an awesome time,” he added. “I’ve seen everything now and I love it.”
Expected to play the fullback/H-Back position for the Tigers when he arrives as an early graduate in January, Cox got a rare treat Saturday night when he witnessed Auburn senior Brandon Fulse become part of the passing game with two catches, including a touchdown. A player that has the ability to take that role in Auburn’s offense to even greater levels, Cox said it was exciting to see some things he could possibly be doing down the road in the offense.
“I was with Jalen Harris and he said, ‘that’s you, that’s your route right there’,” Cox said. “I told him either me or you, that was awesome.”
Hosted on his official visit by Auburn freshman quarterback Sean White, Cox said he really got an opportunity to get to know many of his future teammates better, something that was important for him when taking the visit.
“I mostly hung out with Jalen last night night, and Sean White,” he said of his Saturday night in Auburn. “I met him before, he’s a really nice kid. I really like him, good guy.
“It was important to me, it makes me feel more comfortable since I’m coming in early,” White added of the bonding. “To have friends that will be here is awesome, I’m excited.”
Now Cox has one more job to do before he arrives ready to work with the Tigers in January and that’s to continue helping finish off the 2015 class in strong fashion by helping recruit. That includes talking with teammate and five-star offensive tackle Martez Ivey. Now that he’s seen a game in person at Jordan-Hare Stadium and knows what Ivey can expect when he makes the trip up for the Texas A&M game on Nov. 8, Cox said he’s got plenty to talk about with his good friend.
“It’s incredible, incredible experience on game day and walking on that field before the game seeing all the players, after the game when they’re doing that chant in the locker room,” Cox said. “I Facetimed him on Saturday night after the game and he asked me how it was, I told him he’s going to love it.”
