Huge 6-foot-6, 228-pound quarterback Rodney Cox out of Angier (N.C.) Harnett Central picked up his second scholarship offer in early March. Previously the prospect was holding one from North Carolina State, but another school from the Tar Heel State has come into the mix.
"I got an offer from East Carolina in the last couple weeks," he said. "It's nice to get it and I'll take an interest in them especially since they thought enough of me to offer."
Currently Cox doesn't have any favorite schools, but he is getting plenty of interest.
"I'm getting a lot of mail from schools all over including Purdue, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Clemson, Auburn, Washington, Southern Cal, Oklahoma State, Louisville and more," he said. "I'm open to everyone right now. I am however looking for a school that runs a shotgun formation with four wide receivers. I also really want to go anywhere that can get me to the NFL."
The quarterback prospect isn't sure if he wants to stay in-state for college. If he does, he knows where he'll go.
"If I decide to stay in-state I think I'll go to North Carolina State," he said. "My family has been with that team for as long as I can remember and I grew up around them."
Cox was named conference player of the year for the second season in a row as well as all-conference, all-region and all-state after accounting for nearly 3,800 yards of offense and 49 touchdowns.
This spring the quarterback prospect plans to head to the Shrine Bowl combine.
