Reading being the “challenge” that it is! The 6-foot-3, 233-pound Cox, from Raytown South High School in Kansas City, was known more for his dual-threat quarterback ability as a prep player. The Bison recruited him as a linebacker. After redshirting in 2016, he was the Missouri Valley Newcomer of the Year and Freshman of the Year. He started eight games, including the last six, and ended up leading the team in tackles with 75 and tackles for lost yardage with 13.
