Foxx becomes the sixth official commitment of the day for head coach David Cutcliffe and staff - capping off an incredible day of recruiting. But such big results appear to be expected by every prospect who comes in contact with the new head coach.
"He's got great energy and he really is going to turn things around there. The entire coaching staff has amazing energy and focus."
During his junior season, Foxx posted 11.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles, and his strength is an asset.
"Just like Sylvester [Crawford], he's very sleek, very fast, but Justin is more of a strength guy," said Foxx's high school coach Frank Crockett. "He's the type of guy that will get a lot of tackles – tackling running backs that are coming through his C gap. He can rush the passer, as well, but his strength is his best asset. He can bull rush with his strength, but also has enough speed to get around most offensive tackles."
