5-10, 210 pound running back prospect Joe Joe Cox was one of many recruits in attendance for last Saturday's ACC showdown between Clemson and Miami. "I went up to the game with one of my coaches. It went good. It was loud," Cox told CUTigers.com.
"It was a great game. I was surprised at the outcome."
The talented running back, who remains verbally committed to Clemson, is having an outstanding senior season, but his team is struggling. "I have over 530 yards rushing and four touchdowns, but we are 1-2 on the season," Cox said.
When asked how firm his commitment is to Clemson, Cox responded, "It's firm. I'm still thinking about taking some other visits. I don't know which teams yet, but I know I am going to take some."
Cox was able to speak with the coaches before the game. "I got to talk with the coaches and some of the players before the game. The coaches told me I was looking good. They treated me nice. It was like I was part of the team already," he said.
"I talked with a lot of the players. I spoke with James, Kyle, Reggie, Duane and also Charlie. They told me they were ready for the game. They said they were looking forward to me coming up to Clemson. I wished them good luck."
"I also talked a lot this weekend with Antonio (Clay). It was good. We had a great time," Cox added.
The Georgia standout plans to be back in Tiger Town in November. "I want to come to some more games up there. I know I will be up for the Florida State game. I'm looking forward to that."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding running back from Georgia, right up through signing day.
