Blue Ridge HS ATH Chans Cox (Lakeside, AZ) has reeled in offers from coast to coast and everywhere in between, but just recently named a Top 8 consisting of schools that "currently stand-out." He says that list could change, but he also plans on narrowing it down to a Top 5 in the near future. So, where does Boise State currently stand?

"I wouldn't say it's necessarily a Top 8, but it's where I'm at in my recruitment," he said. "Those are the schools that are recruiting me the hardest and those that I have developed the best relationships with," he added.

"All eight schools have the traits that I'm looking for, but I'm going to have to take some more unofficial visits," he stated. "I really want to get out to Notre Dame, Boise State, all eight of those schools. I'll probably narrow it down to five after I take a few more visits this summer."

"I mostly speak to Coach Huff from Boise State," said Cox. "I've spoken to all of them, though. Coach Huff is a fun guy, great personality, and is like a kid in a grownup's body. Boise State was one of the first schools to offer me so I've been able to build a good relationship with all of their coaches."

Character, Discipline, and a Family Atmosphere - the main qualities that Cox is looking for during the recruiting process.

"Relationship between the players and coaches is big," he said. "Faith is a huge priority in my life as well. I'm looking for that, character, and discipline. Those are the things that make a great program, in my opinion."

Cox was recently classified as the #1 FB prospect on the Scout.com Network and says he could play either FB or LB at the next level.

"Nebraska and USC are the only two really recruiting me for offense," said Cox. "Personally, I like both sides of the ball. I have felt that I have more potential at the LB position due to my size and speed, but I'll play where the coaches think it's best for the team."

"I'll be playing both ways this year," he said. "Our coaches do a great job of keeping us in-shape. I feel we're one of the hardest working schools in Arizona. We're a fast-paced team so conditioning is a big part of that."

The talented ATH and his teammates wrapped up spring practice just recently and expectations are perhaps higher than ever heading into the 2012 season as Blue Ridge returns a ton of talent from a state championship team.

"This team can win state. That's our goal every year," he said. "We won it last year and we return a lot of talent from that team. I think we'll have another great team."

"We'll be doing some team workouts over the summer," he said. "We'll also have a few team camps that will bond us together and that will make us a really close team. I think that's the key to having a great season."
