Coaches checking in on Chans 

April, 26, 2012
Chans Cox (Pinetop, Ariz./Blue Ridge) is one of the more versatile athletes on the West Coast in the class of 2013. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound two-way standout is at home at linebacker or running back. He excels enough on both sides of the ball that college coaches are split on where they see him fitting best.

Cox said while most schools among his 15 scholarship offers see him fitting better on defense, USC and Nebraska are two schools that see him as an offensive player. But he said playing on one side or the other won't affect his decision.

"I love both sides of the ball," Cox said. "If I went to a school to play offense, those coaches would coach me up and make me a good player there, and the same would be true of defense."
