Cox Jr. season, recruiting on pause

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. suffered a wrist injury two weeks ago in his team's loss to Miramar. That injury will sideline the 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive end for six weeks.
The three-star prospect, who holds offers from Akron, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, Minnesota, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Ohio, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, West Virginia, and Youngstown State, says that prior to the injury his recruitment had not changed in any manner since the season began.
"I don't think I have added any new offers lately," Cox Jr. said. "I am still pretty open. I haven't narrowed it down or anything like that."
Despite being sidelined for the next five weeks, Cox Jr. has yet to plan any visits.
"I am not going to take them during the college season," Cox Jr. said. "I am going to take them after everything is wrapped up.
"I haven't set anything up yet," Cox Jr. added. "I was thinking about taking one to LSU, possibly North Carolina along with (his teammate) Jelani (Hamilton). I know there will be some others. I don't want to use my officials on anywhere close, like Miami, because I can get to those places quite easily."
At this stage, Cox Jr. claims no leaders. He said that his visits will play a crucial role in determining where he plays his college football.
"Right now it will likely be a Signing Day decision so I can take all of my officials," Cox Jr. said.
