Coaches from Boise State have been talking to 2013 outside linebacker Chans Cox for a while and after watching some recent highlight tapes on him they decided to offer. The Lakeside (Ariz.) Blue Ridge recruit said he's definitely excited to add the Broncos to his ever-growing list.
So far, Boise State, Arizona, Arizona State and Duke have offered Cox, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound prospect who could be one of the top players in the state of Arizona next recruiting cycle.
"They have been talking to me for a while," Cox said of Boise State. "I've been keeping in contact with them for a while, mostly coach (Scott) Huff and I've talked to the linebackers coach, coach (Bob) Gregory, too.
"I've been building the relationship with them and (Huff) said they all sat down together and watched some film and they liked me as a person and a player and he said they wanted to offer me. It's pretty awesome. I'm really excited about it.
"I'm really considering them. Everybody is still under consideration so it's a great opportunity to have them as another school. I really like the tradition up there and they definitely have a great thing at Boise."
Cox raved about a recent unofficial visit he took to Nebraska and the 2013 prospect also went to Notre Dame to see its game against USC in the last few weeks. The trip to South Bend also went well and he's hoping the Irish stay in touch as his recruitment progresses through next season.
"That was a great experience," Cox said of Notre Dame. "It was a beautiful campus and it was awesome to get out there to see the tradition they have there. It was really crazy.
"It was pretty hectic because we had a big game the night before that and then we flew out there the next morning and got there just in time to meet with some of the coaches. They had some of the top seniors there, too, so they were with them, and we knew that before we went out there. I just wanted to see it and it was really cool."
Other than the new offer from Boise State, Cox said he's starting to talk more with Tennessee and Michigan State. A big off-season could help the junior land even more offers heading into his senior year.
