Cox up to five offers

Apopka (Flor.) quarterback Zack Darlington is weeks away from being a Husker. The Nebraska staff was in-home with the to-be Husker and gave him and his dad the news that they were offering his team mate Chandler Cox. What are Cox's thoughts on the Nebraska offer?


Chandler Cox from Apopka (Flor.) is steadily becoming a name to watch in 2015. The do it all athlete picked up an offer recently from the Huskers when they were in-home with one of Cox's teammates.

"I got the offer recently from Nebraska," Cox said. "They were in for an in-home visit and they told Zack Darlington and Coach Darlington that they were offering. Both coach and Zack were texting me telling me the good news."

Cox is not up to five offers. It seems that most teams like Cox as a fullback in one way or another. The standout junior does a little bit of everything for Apopka.

"I have five offers right now. I have offers Nebraska, Duke, Kentucky, New Mexico and Boston College. We run a single-wing and I run the ball, block and I can throw it too. I can play multiple positions and I think that is what coaches like."

"I think that Nebraska likes me as a fullback/H-Back. When Zack is in I will line up either in the backfield with him or in the slot. They moved me around a lot with Zack in there."

Cox has a stout frame and is just a physical specimen. College coaches have said that they see him factoring into their offenses in so many different ways including even running the wildcat potentially.

"I am 6-foot-2 and 220-pounds. I think that the coaches really like my blocking. Some of them have told me they like how physical I am. Most of the teams look for players like me in the goal line and short yardage. Teams also like me in pass routes or even run the wildcat."
