Well, Big Cat Weekend was sure to bring at least one surprise commit -- who knew it would come from one who wasn't even able to attend the event. One of the top fullbacks in the country, Chandler Cox, committed to the Tigers Saturday afternoon. Cox, a member of the 2015 recruiting class, is from Apopka (FL), and is ranked the #3 fullback in the nation according to 247Sports.com.
"I just spoke to [Gus Malzahn]," Cox told 247sports. "He was so excited. He said this was probably one of the best days of him being at Auburn."
Cox will most likely play a role similar to that of former H-back, Jay Prosch, who was drafted by the Houston Texans in the NFL draft a few weeks ago.
Cox is the 15th commitment for the Tigers' 2015 class, which is currently ranked fourth on the 247sports.com team rankings.
Cox's commitment is solid, as he will not take any other college visits.
