Lakeside (AZ) Blue Ridge stand out Chans Cox has narrowed his list to seven schools at the moment, but isn't dead set on them being his final choices.

"I'm still going to wait to see if there is another offer that comes in that I like, but I have sort of narrowed the list," said Cox who is on somewhat of a faster deadline compared to other players in his class. "I'm starting to get on track to graduate early, which I think will be huge in helping my chances go up to start as a true freshman. I will be able to get into a program's spring ball."

Cox told Big Red Report on Tuesday night currently Nebraska, Arizona State, Arkansas, Boise State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Washington are the schools he's looking at as of now.

"Sometime in the fall," said Cox when asked of his plans to have a final decision. "I will still have time to get out to a few schools like Arkansas and Notre Dame, and other schools that I have listed if I wait until the fall.

"Tulsa has offered me on offense as well, but Nebraska is the only school currently on the list to offer me on the offensive side of the football. USC has also talked to me about offense, but I don't have an offer from them yet.

When the Huskers offered in late February, Coach Ron Brown told the Arizona All-State player they were interested in him playing H back.

"I love both sides of the ball, so I would love to play either," said Cox, who's grandfather went to UNL and still lives in the state. "Whenever I'm with my family, they always cheer for Nebraska. It's a school that I've always sort of been familiar with.

As a junior, he recorded over 60 tackles and rushed for nearly 700 yard with 10+ touchdowns, despite missing time during the year with a shoulder injury.
