Oregon Ducks and Chans Cox

The Oregon Ducks are reportedly going after  middle linebacker recruit Chans Cox with quite a bit of zeal, and the four-star recruit is the eighth best inside linebacker available, among the five best recruits in the state of Arizona, and Chans Cox is also one of the top 100 recruits in the country. He would be a huge addition in 2013 for the Oregon Ducks and could be the heir apparent to star LB Michael Clay.

Chans Cox currently has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Arkansas, Colorado, Duke, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Utah, and Washington with Oregon having interest in Chans Cox (Don Pellum is recruiting him). Cox has a great mix of strength and speed, as he has a 4.5 40 yard dash under his belt and has the strength to dominate at his position and maxes out at 315.

The 6’3″, 220 pound ILB’s strength is immense, and he is currently receiving the highest amount of interest from Nebraska with Arizona and Oklahoma slotting behind the Huskers. Those three teams are the front-runners, but the Ducks are making a charge and could end up with Chans Cox; one of the best defensive recruits out west. He had 61 tackles, 682 rushing yards, and 13 touchdowns in his last high school season and is also an able rusher. However, his strength and overall ability translates much better at linebacker and, more specifically, at inside linebacker.
