Biography

The powerfully built ball carrier found success in the UMass one-back offense as a senior, more than making up for four seasons of relative inactivity while a member of the University of Michigan program. Compared to former New York Giants standout, Ron Johnson, the Dorchester product is likely to shift to fullback at the professional level, as he is a punishing blocker with excellent leg drive to get the tough yardage running between the tackles.

Cox lettered three times on the gridiron at Avon Old Farms High School, where he rushed for more than 2,400 yards in three seasons at running back. He tallied 222 yards on 41 carries before his senior season was cut short due to an ankle injury. He rushed for over 1,000 yards as a junior, averaging nearly 10 yards per carry, and scored sixteen times on the ground in 2006.

Cox was regarded as a four-star prospect and the 35th-best running back nationally according to Scout.com. He was ranked 30th on the Rivals.com Prep School Top 50 list and tabbed the 69th-best running back recruit in the country by ESPN.com. The Prep Star All-East Region choice participated in the Piscataway NIKE Training Camp and attended the New Jersey NIKE Combine before enrolling at the University of Michigan.

Cox was never given much of an opportunity with the Wolverines. He red-shirted in 2008 and appeared briefly in four games in 2009, as he totaled 113 yards with two touchdowns on thirteen carries. He saw two games of action as a junior (56 yards on six runs) and did not see playing time until the final two games of the 2011 season. The NCAA later granted him permission to transfer without sitting out the year.

The 2012 season was the ball carrier’s “coming out party.” He started all twelve games for the Minutemen, scoring five times on 198 attempts for 715 yards. He also caught thirteen tosses for 63 yards. At the NFL Super Regional Combine in Dallas, he opened the eyes of NFL decision makers, running a 4.58-second 40-yard dash with 24 reps in the 225-pound bench press, followed by a 41-inch vertical jump and a 10’-11” broad jump.
