Three-star running back Andre Boone out of Virginia Beach (Va.) Cox kicked off the season with his teammates last week against Ocean Lakes. The 5-foot-10, 179-pounder had a solid game, but Cox came up short on a 14-7 loss.
"I ran for 85 yards and one touchdown in the game," he said. "I wasn't too happy with myself as I was trying to get 150 yards or so. I hope things will come out different in the coming weeks by hitting my holes better."
This week Cox plays Salem.
"I think we can win as we've got a bunch of seniors and a lot of leaders on the team," he said. "We all want to win and that's what will motivate us to get to the playoffs this year."
Little has changed for the No. 37 running back in the country on the recruiting front.
"I've been talking to Marshall, Wake Forest and East Carolina on the phone," he said. "The call from Marshall was good as I got to know the running back coach better. I felt really comfortable talking to him and he was interesting in coming to one of my games this year.
"I haven't heard too much from East Carolina in recent weeks. They've just been sending me letters and telling me to come for a visit to their games."
Boone is currently considering an unofficial visit to Marshall sometime this season.
The No. 17 player in Virginia and the No. 37 rated running back in the nation has two schools in mind for official visits when they come.

Both coaches tell me that they want to see more game film. I plan to send out more in the next couple weeks. Michigan State is kind of new to the list for me, but it's a great opportunity in the Big Ten. I'm interested in them and checking it out."Here to view this Link.
