Cox is the seventh verbal commitment for Clemson in the 2006 recruiting class, and the first running back prospect to commit to the Tigers.
A member of the Cox family confirmed the commitment Tuesday evening. "He's commited to Clemson," his sister said. "I know that he's done that already."
As a junior, Cox rushed for over 1,800 yards and scored 22 touchdowns.
In an interview with Scout.com earlier this year, Cox said, "My stiff arm is my best thing on the football field. I like to run people over. I'd rather run through you than around you any day. I think I mostly need to work on my footwork."
Cox has also mentioned throughout the recruiting process that his former teammate and incoming freshman at Clemson Antonio Clay played a significant role in his recruitment.
"I hang out with him all the time," Cox said."He's real excited about coming to Clemson. I would really like to play with him."
The Georgia native chose the Tigers over offers from Maryland, Alabama, Penn State, and UCLA among others.
Cox will debut as a three-star prospect by Scout.com later this summer. CUTigers.com will have more on Cox's commitment later this evening.
