TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- At Northridge High School, all of the hype is around 2014 running back Bo Scarbrough, who already has offers from Alabama and Auburn. But his teammate, junior wide receiver James Cox, may be close to seeing his recruitment take off.

Cox already has offers from Mississippi State and Purdue, but he has been receiving a lot of interest from Alabama, Louisville, LSU and Tennessee, among others.

“I don’t know what it takes for these people to pull the trigger,” Northridge head coach Mike Smith said. “I know Alabama’s new offensive coordinator really likes him. If he stays injury-free and has the year that he finished up at the end of last year, there’s going to be a ton of offers. The kid’s dedicated to getting there.”
