Penn State Football Recruiting: Four-Star S Demetrious Cox Visits, Likes New Staff

A lot has changed about Penn State football in the last year, but four-star safety recruit Demetrious Cox still lists State College as a possible destination. (via ESPN Insider)

Cox, who was originally recruited by Tom Bradley before Penn State was knocked by scandal, visited the school for the second time this past weekend and had a chance to meet with the new coaching staff for the first time. He left with a better understanding of the school, and seemed to enjoy his time with new coach Bill O'Brien's crew.

"It went good," Cox said. "I talked to the new coaches and liked the vibe I was getting and the direction they’re talking about going in. It was overall a good visit."

"They were saying they liked everything about me," Cox said. "I fit in with what they need, which is at safety right now. I can come in and play and be a leader."

"I’m getting a positive feel from coach O’Brien," Cox said. "He’s not going to change the tradition but build off of it."

Many questions Cox had about the program were put to bed this weekend, but he still wonders one thing:

"The only question I still have is how the season is going to go with them," said Cox, who said the subject did not come up this weekend. "I’m not really sure yet."

Cox said he will take two more school visits to Notre Dame, Ohio State and/or Wisconsin.
