Cox Visits UCLA

Pasadena (Calif.) quarterback Brandon Cox (6-2.5, 193), is sitting on one offer, from Arizona, but the southpaw thinks that more could be getting close.

"Last Friday, I went to UCLA, and I talked to Coach (Noel) Mazzone and Coach (Jim) Mora, and we sat down and talked with them about the offense and I liked them a lot," said Cox. "Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) is recruiting my region, but I thought it would be good to meet the offensive coordinator."

While Cox didn't get an offer, he got some good feedback from the Bruin coaches.

"They like me a lot and want to get to see me throw, and I feel like I can play for them and impress them so I'll probably go there to camp," said Cox.

Houston has also started to show interest in Cox as well as a couple of other Pac-12 schools.

"Coach Jamie Christian saw my highlight tape and we got a chance to talk and they're interested," said Cox. "I'm also getting a lot of interest from Washington, Washington State and Oregon."

Cox visited Arizona last month to meet with the Wildcat coaches.

"I went to Arizona about 2-3 weeks ago for a weekend," said Cox. "They told me to come up there so I went out and met with Coach (Rich) Rodriguez and Coach (Rod) Smith."

Cox said that the Arizona coaches compared him to one of Rodriguez's former quarterbacks, Pat White, from West Virginia.

"That meant a lot too because he was a good quarterback," said Cox.

Cox said the majority of schools want to come watch him workout in the spring.

"Coaches from Arizona State, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, Oregon State and Washington State all said they want to see me throw," said Cox.

Academically, Cox has a 3.7 and took the SAT this month.

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
