Cox heads to the Bayou

Cox leaves some big shoes to fill on the Bison defense.

Jabril Cox is taking his talents, and laundry list of accomplishments, to Baton Rouge to be an LSU Tiger.

In an Instagram post last month Cox noted that one of his goals was to play at the FBS level, it just so happens the defending national champions came calling.

Three of LSU’s linebackers from last season left before their eligibility was up, so Cox will be a welcomed addition to Coach Ed Orgeron’s crew.

The two-time All-American leaves NDSU with a 35-1 record and three national championships under his belt. Cox was one of the best defensive players in school history after wreaking havoc on FCS offenses over the last three years.

Recruiting analysts from 247Sports Charles Power noted Cox was “easily among the most talented players on the transfer market.”

Cox will be eligible to play immediately (assuming we still have a college football season, which at this point is a big assumption) with the logical next step being the NFL.

If Cox performs even a sliver as well as he has as a Bison the last three years, there’s no reason he can’t be one of the top linebackers in next year’s draft class.
