Checking in with Chans Cox

On Sunday, Big Red Report took the time to check in with four-star prospect Chans Cox.

Lakeside (AZ) Blue Ridge stand out Chans Cox knows what Nebraska is all about. His grandfather went to UNL and family still resides in the area. Cox visited campus last year during the Ohio State game. Factoring all of that in, it's likely the Huskers will remain in his recruitment down to the very end.

"There really is nothing new at this point," said Cox when Big Red Report caught up with the soon to be senior on Sunday night. "I'm talking to Arizona State, USC, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Washington, Boise State, Colorado, and Oklahoma the most as of right now."

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.

"It's not been too stressful at this point," said Cox, who was visited by Nebraska's Ron Brown in late April. "All of those coaches have been out to see me, but it's all going great and it's exciting."

It's not uncommon for four-star recruits to skip college camps in the summer. Usually nothing can be gained from the experience. Cox will not be participating in any camps in June and July, but it's not because he doesn't want to.

"I can't because of my shoulder," said the Arizona product, who had surgery in late March. "As far as other visits this summer, no plans as of yet."

Cox will be making the rounds, trying to decide where he would like to take his official visits this fall. It's likely he will make a decision sometime after his senior year.

"I've made a plan, actually, to graduate early," said Cox in a previous Scout.com update. "I'll be graduating in December and think it will be a hug advantage for me, because I'll be able to enroll at a school for winter and then I'll be able to play spring football. That will be a huge advantage for me at the next level."

Nebraska is recruiting the 2013 prospect as a H back. While he is being recruited on both sides of the ball, most teams are chasing after him as a linebacker, where he is the No. 9 middle linebacker in the country by Scout.com.
