Recruiting: Cox Deciding, Leaning To OSU?

Perrish Cox, the All-American cornerback out of University High School in Waco, Texas, has still not signed a letter of intent as of 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning (Central time), according to Lee Roy Coleman, his high school coach.

"We're still waiting for Perrish right now to sign," Coleman told Robert Allen on Triple Play Sports Radio this morning. "He came in this morning and said he really liked Oklahoma State, but he had not verbally or officially put that in writing yet. So I think he's a little bit undecided and still a little bit confused. I think Oklahoma State probably is the frontrunner right now, but he still has LSU on the backburner, and still thinking about them a little bit."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback originally commited to LSU over Oklahoma State. But in recent weeks reports had surfaced that Cox was rethinking his commitment. Cowboy assistant coaches Vance Bedford and Doug Meacham traveled to Waco this past weekend to visit with Cox.

Coleman said that a signing ceremony is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at the school, and he expects his star player to decide before then.

"We had it all lined up for this morning and things kinda got torn a little bit so we had to restructure it and we're going to do it this afternoon when his parents get here," Coleman said.

Coleman has had his share of big-time players sign out of University High, but he doesn't remember the excitement that Cox's announcement has produced.

"We've had a lot of kids come through and sign. I was telling Perrish that when L.T., LaDanian Tomlinson (of the San Diego Chargers), was here we didn't have this much excitement when he was here."
