Last Thursday was a day junior three-star receiver James Cox of Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Northridge won't soon forget.
In a matter of hours, his offer list doubled.
"I had two, and now I have four total," Cox said.
The latest offers came from Arkansas and Southern Miss, according to Cox. He previously was offered by Mississippi State and Purdue.
"It was great," Cox said. "I didn't expect it when I woke up in the morning. But I got a call from class, and the coach from Southern Miss was there. Then Arkansas came toward the end of the day."
Cox , who is 6-feet, 184 pounds, said both programs will be strongly considered.
"Yes sir … Arkansas because they throw the ball and they play in the SEC," Cox said. "They play a lot of receivers every game. Southern Miss is really building off this last year they had. They're a program really going up."
Right now, Cox claims to have no favorites.
"I'm just going to take my time," Cox said. "I don't really have a leader up to this point. I'm still kind of enjoying the process."
Cox is optimistic more offers are coming. And he suggested Vanderbilt could be a program to watch on that front. The Commodores were at his school Friday.
"Their wide receiver coach is coming on Thursday," Cox said. "I feel pretty good. I sent my transcript in and they received it."
Once school lets out, Cox plans to stay busy this summer.
"I definitely know I'll visit LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Alabama for camps," Cox said.
