Marquez Ezzard, a four-star athlete who’s a close friend and teammate of Cox, trimmed his list to eight on Thursday and Ohio State made the cut. Ezzard, who’s 6-foot-1 and 213 pounds, plays wide receiver for Stockbridge (Ga.) High School.
The pair of high school teammates has expressed strong interest in playing together in college.

Cox told DawgNation earlier this year that he and Ezzard will play together in college and he didn’t mince his words.
“I’m talking 10 times out of 10,” Cox said. “We’re going to play together. I’m talking about 10 times out of 10. For real. That’s happening.”
