The biggest knock on Cox is his overall speed. However, on film he shows the ability to close quickly and seems to always be around the ball.
A Scout.com four-star safety (#8 safety in country) who Mark Dantonio beat Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State for. Should be able to come in early and compete while also giving the Spartans a solid special team's player early. Cox is a big addition to the Spartans class and shows Spartan fans Dantonio and his staff are fully capable of fighting for the top players in the country.
