About his recruitment, Fox said, “Right now I would say I don’t have any leaders. I don’t want anybody in front of anybody else at this point. The schools I talk to the most are Arizona, Louisville, Kansas, and Texas.” Shaka Smart has made it a point to recruit the in-state talent very hard, and Fox was one of his first calls upon receiving the job in Austin. “Our relationship has become great,” said Fox of Smart. “I didn’t talk to him when he was at VCU, but I knew him. With that style of play, everyone knew who VCU was. Once he get there he called me the second day he was in the office. I feel like our relationship is really good and I have been down there twice for visits.” Recently Arizona has really turned things up on Fox, and he likes the style of play in Tucson. “They are an up and down team,” said Fox of Arizona. “Not a pressing team, but they get up and down. Also they have had really good guards, and their one through their four can take it up the court. That shows the versatility of their players and I like the way they play. I feel it fits me and my style.” Kansas has had some success recruiting the Houston area in the past, and they are hoping to continue that with Fox. “They are just telling me that if I go up there that I would likely be the only point guard,” noted Fox of the Jayhawks. “They will always have the bigs, they have a winning tradition, and playing in Allen Fieldhouse would be special. I have talked to Kelly (Oubre) about it, he committed during Late Night, and he told me how special it is.” In the last month Louisville has absolutely made Fox a priority, and that work is beginning to pay off, as Fox likes the Cardinals. “They have really picked it up,” noted Fox of Louisville. “I know Donovan Mitchell and I know guys there. I am one of the only point guards they are recruiting, so when I get there the ball would be in my hands. Coach (Rick) Pitino has really been on me the last month and a half. I liked the way they used Chris Jones, Peyton Siva, Terry Rozier, and those guys, so I like them.” In terms of the next step in his recruitment, Fox said, “I will probably trim my list to seven after this live period, and then I will try and make my visits around September or October.”
