Angier (N.C.) Harnett Central quarterback Rodney Cox is putting together another impressive season. The 6-foot-6, 228-pounder is a force on the ground and through the air.
"He's doing really well for us and in his last game he threw for 272-yards and six touchdowns," Harnett Central head coach Marc Morris said. "He's got 1,449 yards rushing, averaging 10.7 yards per carry and has 18 rushing touchdowns. He's also got over 2,100 yards passing and seven touchdowns.
"He's a very special player for us. He still looks like he's running around at 180-pounds out there, but he's doing it at 6-foot-6, 225-pounds. He's the next dual-athlete and definitely fits that mold well. This year I can tell you he's much more mature."
As far as recruiting is going, little has changed for the three-star prospect.
"None of his offers are written, but he's got a ton of verbals from Clemson, North Carolina State, East Carolina, South Carolina and others," he said. "I know he pretty much can go wherever he wants. Everybody is just waiting on his SAT score to see if he'll be eligible. He's about to take it in the next couple weeks.
"If I were to guess right now, I'd say that North Carolina State and East Carolina are possibly frontrunners. They have been with him the longest, but he's looking for a nice program and a spread offense."
