Is Cox the best CB in Texas?

When the offer list gets too long for someone to remember the majority of who has offered that is when it is acceptable for someone to say "a lot". That is the situation for what might be the top cornerback in the entire state of Texas. While he can't remember everyone who has offered there is a clear-cut top five.

For Parrish Cox the answer is simple the question on how many offers he is holding. It's "a lot". While the recruiting attention has been hitting on all cylinders for Cox, so has football practice this spring.

"It's been going good," Cox said. "We should really make state this year. I will be playing cornerback and wide receiver."

Like a mirror on the other side of Cox will be his cousin, Fabian Price, who is similar in everything down to the inch, the pound, the positions and even speed as Cox.

"He moved from safety to cornerback this spring. He's 6-foot-1 and 185, I am 6-foot-1 and 180. I have about a 4.4/40 and he is about a 4.45. He didn't have a good year last year and then he moved to receiver and the first ball he caught was a touchdown."

Cox had himself a great year last year with 44 recections for 679 yards and 11 touchdowns from the receiver position. On defense he made his presence known with seven interceptions. He also dabbled in kick returns averaging over 20 yards per return and had one touchdown.

It's to understand why so many teams have taken an interest in Cox who is holding "a lot" of offers.

"I really don't know how many. A lot. I have offers from Texas Tech, Texas, SMU, TCU, Baylor, Washington and Nebraska for starters. I think that LSU, Baylor and Nebraska were by my school for the evaluation period already."

Cox is looking at a top five already of LSU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, TCU and SMU. I grew up watching Texas, but my top choice is LSU. Texas Tech is a close second. I just really like LSU's style."

Cox took one unoffical last year to Austin for a game. However, so far this spring he hasn't taken any unofficial visits, but he is getting ready to start hitting some camps.

"I am going to try and hit Texas A&M, Baylor, TCU, SMU and maybe Texas. I will just go to colleges in the area. I will also be at the U.S. Army All-American Combine in Waco on May 22."
