Georgia Bulldogs: Marcus Cox

Week 11 helmet stickers

November, 10, 2013
ATHENS, Ga. – Here are three Georgia players who earned helmet stickers with their outstanding performances in Saturday's 45-6 win against Appalachian State.

Rantavious Wooten: Although Georgia's offense struggled early, senior receiver Wooten delivered one of the top performances of his career. He opened Georgia's first touchdown drive with a 23-yard grab and capped it with a 35-yard scoring reception, and later added a 33-yard grab on a third-quarter field-goal drive. Wooten finished with four catches for a career-high 104 yards.

Ray Drew: The junior defensive end recorded his team-high sixth sack of the season and recorded two tackles for loss to reach eight for the season and move within one of Jordan Jenkins' team lead. Drew also knocked down a Kameron Bryant pass at the line of scrimmage.

Jordan Jenkins: The sophomore outside linebacker didn't record a sack or a tackle for a loss, but he came up with a couple of big plays on Saturday. Appalachian State drove for field goals on each of its first two drives, and it was looking for three more points to conclude its third possession when Jenkins blocked Drew Stewart's 49-yard kick early in the second quarter. Jenkins also picked up a Marcus Cox fumble and returned it to the Appalachian State 42-yard line, setting up a fourth-quarter touchdown drive. That was one of two takeaways for a Georgia defense that came in with the fewest turnovers gained (seven) in the SEC.

Marcus Cox waiting on first offer

Marcus Cox (Dacula, Ga.) is a versatile athlete from the Peach State. Some teams like him on offense, others like him on defense but the 5-foot-10, 183-pound recruit prefers the football in his hands. At Dacula he plays running back, receiver and returns punts and kicks.

“I may play some defense this season,” Cox said. “I will play corner or safety. But most schools like me as a running back or receiver. It doesn’t matter to me I just want to play as a freshman. I just like making plays. At running back I have good vision. I can think on the run. It comes naturally. I have good instincts. I am a playmaker.

“At receiver, I have the tools of a running back. I can catch and am very elusive with the ball. Most linebackers can’t cover me and I can get yards after the catch.”

California, Florida and Texas are largely considered the "Big Three" in college football recruiting. But national recruiting analyst Gerry Hamilton joins ESPN's Phil Murphy to explain why Georgia deserves to be in the top tier and has numbers to prove it.
