One of the area’s top 10 players, Fenton senior Cory Cox, will play his college ball at Cornerstone University according to Steve Bell (@bankhoops).
Cox, a 6-5 forward who can play inside and outside, will follow in his brother’s footsteps to the NAIA. Nate Cox, similarly sized and skilled at the high school level, is Davenport University’s first and only NAIA All-American (2011).
Having watched both players at the high school level, I’d give Cory a slight advantage in talent when comparing both at the same age. That being said, it’s how to account for how hard a player works to get better in college. Nate obviously put in his time.
