I don't think it's a given that he'll start. I wouldn't be surprised if he does but I also wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't. I WOULD be surprised if he doesn't get significant playing time. I don't think they'd have made a scholarship available for him if they didn't expect that he would.

The reason I say that I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't start is that, though LSU lost its starters, it had 14 linebackers on its roster last year that were underclassmen who didn't declare for the draft. Obviously most of those guys were top recruits. They also signed four top linebacker recruits for this year. So there should be some stout competition.
Cox has been a man among boys with NDSU. In ISU playoff game he was in the backfield, fell trying to tackle Robinson, the NFL bound RB. Got up and tackled him 15 yards later. He didn't get a lot of stats, because many teams ran plays away from him. If he had gone to the draft this year, draftsite had him as a 2nd or 3rd round pick most of the 2019 season. He was a QB in high school, so he didn't have a lot of schools looking at him. Fell into the Bison lap, similar to Carson Wentz. Probably the best defensive player to come out of NDSU, EVER.
All of my bad jokes aside, Cox is a great player and my money is on him to start for LSU. He has the physical tools, the brains and the drive.

I guess if I had to bet I'd bet he starts because I don't think LSU would've pursued him if they didn't think there was a good chance of that happening. I don't think they'd take somebody with one year of eligibility left if they didn't expect a lot. But it's obviously a very high talent level program.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

No doubt Cox is a great player. There’s a dipshit on eGriz who claims he’ll be the first LB off the board come draft day....He’s good....he ain’t THAT good.

He could be, last year he was project 2nd or 3rd round if he had left early. Have to see how his final year goes.

Looking good at LSU so far.

Jabril Cox was the best defensive player on the field in most games he played for North Dakota State. Now his new coach says he's the best player on the field at LSU.

That's high praise, considering his new coach is Ed Orergon of defending Football Bowl Subdivision champion Tigers.

In a radio interview with a New Orleans sports radio station, Orergon said Cox has been "phenomenal" for the sixth-ranked Tigers.

"When we left the field a couple of days ago, I thought he was the best player on the field," Orgeron said. "The guy's made some plays. I haven't heard him say a word yet. I don't think I've heard him say, 'Hello, Coach.' He's calm he's focused. He knows the defense. Right now, to me, he's solidified that he's a starter for us in my eyes. He's done a great job here."


Cox was a three-year starter at NDSU and two-time All-America. He transferred from the Bison in the spring and, after a brief recruiting period that included most of the major programs in the country, committed to LSU.

Later in his weekly press conference with media covering LSU, Orergon heaped more praise on Cox, saying he believes the former Bison "is going to have an excellent year."

The Tigers, of the powerful Southeastern Conference, are scheduled to open Sept. 26 against Mississippi State in Baton Rouge.

"He came out with a great attitude. I mean, I said it this morning, I haven’t heard him say a word – maybe if I say a word to him, but his focus is razor-sharp,” Orgeron said. "He’s always studying, very smart, knows the defense, very fast.

"I think Jabril is about 6-foot-3 about to 225 to 230 — and can run, key and diagnose. Obviously, he has a lot of experience playing the position. He’s a physical tackler. He can shed blocks well, rush the passer well, drops in coverage. He’s a complete linebacker."


One of the reasons Cox chose LSU was that the Tigers lost starters at linebacker, giving Cox a chance to earn a starting position despite being a newcomer.

"First of all, he was an outstanding player at North Dakota State. They have a tremendous culture there. Those guys win, year in and year out, and he’s a great character young man," Orgeron said on Tuesday. "Speaking to him on the phone, guys knew him, he came on highly recommended. Now the thing I saw on film was a big linebacker that could run and hit and key and diagnose. I didn’t know he was gonna be that good.

"I think this guy is gonna have an excellent year at LSU. He definitely is an SEC linebacker. Obviously, he was overlooked in recruiting but here’s his shot. I think the thing I like most about Jabril is his maturity. He came in focused, he was going to win the starting job and be a great player."

Good for him. Orergon knows football, so I’ll take his word for it. Still a long ways to go before the draft.

Kudos for Cox.

I see Miss St did pass for 623 yds/5 TDs in their 44-34 upset of LSU :shock: I see Bo Pelinni’s defense is working out real well for them.. :lol:

Speaking of I-AA 2 time AAs transferring up to P5s and making INTs this past weekend. JMU's D'Angelo Amos, 2x AA punt returner & was NFL Draftscout #2 ranked FS in I-AA, grad transferred up to UVA and is now starting at nickel. On Saturday vs Duke:


Obviously Cox was by by far the biggest grad transfer up. His announcement was pre virus.

I wonder how many grad transfers up there were among the top I-AA players? # had to be limited due to the fact that they had to be grads, so as to not sit out a yr.
-JMU had 2: Amos, and a 2 yr starting DT.
-Villanova had 2 enter the transfer portal: the NFL Draftscout #1 rated center in I-AA transferred to UCLA, and the top returning WR in the CAA transferred to VT.
