Georgia Tech has picked up a big, bruising running back from the state of Pennsylvania. Mike Cox of Red Land High School has made a commitment to play for the Yellow Jackets.
"I committed to Coach Gailey last night," said Cox. "One of the
main reasons I committed to Georgia Tech was because he said I could run the
ball. Most of the other schools I talked to wanted me pretty much as a blocking
back. I had early offers from Tech, Boston College, and Temple. A lot of schools
said they wanted to see my first scrimmage and make sure my shoulder was healed
before they offered me, and that was one of the things I liked about Tech, they
stuck by me through my injury."
Cox missed four games last year after separating his shoulder, but he made it
back to play the last two games with a harness. Tough? I don't think we have to
ask that question any more. Cox is working on getting his bench press back over
300 pounds since the injury, but he has still been busy in the weight room with
a 615 pound squat. He plays linebacker on defense as well, and at 6-2 and 248
pounds with a 4.78 forty, it would not be totally shocking to see him on the
defensive line on the next level. Right now though, he has his sites set on
running the ball, and that is where he is going to get his first shot.
