National Signing Day 2020: Tristan Cox Signs NLI!

A new Boilermakers from the bluegrass state

NCAA Football: Northwestern at Purdue Journal & Courier-USA TODAY NETWORK

Name: Tristan Cox

Position & Size: Linebacker, 6-3, 230 Pounds

Hometown: Pulaski County, Kentucky

Thoughts:

Tristan could be the next thumping inside linebacker, similar to Derrick Barnes.

He has a big stature already and will only continue to grow once he gets to Purdue. In HS he did a great job of running sideline to sideline and making plays.

But, I could also see a situation where he keeps bulking up and plays some defensive end at some point in his career at Purdue.

Welcome!
