Cox's father, Tom, played football at USC and his brother, Dakota, played at New Mexico. He was ranked the top fullback prospect nationally coming out of Apopka, Florida, where his team won state titles in two of his three final years at the school. Cox started 10 of 13 games played as a true freshman (3-25 receiving, no carries) and 9 of 12 in 2016 (7-15-2.1, one TD rushing; 4-41 receiving), scoring his first collegiate touchdown in the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma. He lined up as a fullback and H-back for the Tigers in 2016 and 2017, when he started 11 of 14 games (3-25 receiving, no carries). He started 11 of 13 games played as a senior, rushing for two touchdowns (3-3-1.0 overall) and catching 11 passes for 93 yards (8.5 average) and one score.

Undrafted free agent
Overview
Cox possesses a tenacious field demeanor and plays every snap with the same intensity and effort regardless of opponent. He can work as an H-back or fullback but will be unable to dislodge linebackers on downhill iso-blocks and can be much more effective as a lead blocker on outside zone with the pass-catching acumen to handle play-action leakouts. He lacks speed as a core special teamer, but he gets after it when asked to protect his quarterback and that should improve his chances to make a roster.
