Leach’s staff has definitely increased recruiting in the special teams area in the short time they’ve been on the job. The Bulldogs have received commitments from Nolan McCord and now Colby Cox. Both specialists are Georgia natives and will both be in contention in the fall for their positions.

Cox, who recently visited Mississippi State is regarded as the 10th best long snapper in America, and had offers from Air Force, Army, Georgia Southern, and the Citadel. Cox, will be graduating from Woodstock H.S. this year and will be on campus in the fall.
