The Southern Miss staff is not only making headway with the class of 2017, but they are getting an early jump on the class of 2018. In many instances lately, they've been the first to offer many talented prospects from the class of '18.
They are also looking for prospects that will fit the new defensive system, and they've found one that is going to continue to be highly sought after in '18 Andres Fox.
The 6'5, 230b DE/QB from Mobile Christian is just the type of athlete they are looking for to play on the outside of the line.
"I can play both offense and defense, I play both defensive end and QB," he told GoldenEaglePride.com.
"I also play some tight end on offense too."
The staff took notice of his athleticism and length, and loved what they saw.
"They basically said they liked how rangy I am and how I could be a perfect fit at DE/OLB," he added.
Others are certainly taking notice too, as he's earned a handful of offers.
"I've been offered by UAB, Troy, NC State, Jacksonville State, Bowling Green and Southern Miss," he said.
"I am certainly planning on visiting Southern Miss this summer."
