Offers keep on rolling in for Jeannette’s two-way athlete Demetrious Cox.
The Jayhawks’ senior-to-be is up to 10 verbal D-1 offers, according to Scout.com and Rivals.com. Offering schools include Boston College, Connecticut, Kansas, Kansas State, Michigan State, Penn State, Pitt, Temple and West Virginia. Rivals lists Arizona State as also having extended an offer to the 6’1, 185-pound athlete. Other programs showing interest in Cox that have not yet extended offers include Duke, Buffalo, Ohio State and Wisconsin.
Cox operated the reins of a resurgent Jeannette offense that averaged 38 points per game last season, topping the 40-point mark in six of 10 games. He accounted for 16 total touchdowns, running for 12 and throwing for four. He amassed 621 rushing yards and completed 55-of-88 passes for 698 yards.
Defensively, Cox was part a Jayhawk unit (including reserves) that held seven of 10 opponents to 13 points or less. He recorded a trio of interceptions for Jeannette as a safety.
Jeannette finished 7-3 last season, ending the year with two consecutive losses following a 7-1 start. The Jayhawks were eliminated in the opening round of the WPIAL AA playoffs by Freeport, 30-22.
