The spring could be important for Brandon Cox as a bunch of schools are expected to come watch the Pasadena, Calif., quarterback throw the ball and one SEC team has been showing a great deal of interest already.
Cox, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound four-star dual-threat quarterback, said Ole Miss has gotten seriously involved recently and it will be one program coming out in the coming weeks to watch him throw the ball.
"I've been in contact with Ole Miss and that's the newest so far," Cox said. "I'm pretty excited. That's the first SEC school talking to me so that's good.

"The coaches want to get to know me a little more and then they're supposed to come down and watch me throw in the spring. That has been the hottest topic so far that all the coaches want to come down and see me throw during spring so that's going to be pretty big for me this off-season."
Arizona has already offered Cox, who threw for 2,697 yards with 26 touchdowns and five interceptions in his junior season, and he said Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, Duke and Arizona State are also expected to come out for spring practice which starts for Pasadena on May 7.
Cox, who also rushed for 562 yards and eight scores last year, said he's excited because all those coaches coming out could lead to more offers.
Rated as the No. 11 dual-threat quarterback in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, Cox said he doesn't have a timetable for making his commitment and it really could come at any time once he decides he's comfortable with a particular school.
"There's no telling when I'm going to decide which school I'm going to," Cox said. "It's where I feel comfortable and I talk with my coach and we can sit down and talk. I'm not sure when I'm going to commit."
