Could Devon Fox be Ohio's most overlooked recruit for 2019?

Devon Fox impressed greatly as a wide receiver at the recent Cleveland Under Armour Camp, but he just might be a cornerback at the college level.

Maple Heights (OH) three-star wide receiver Devon Fox showed up at the recent Cleveland Under Armour Camp as a relative unknown recruit, but he caught everything thrown his way and showed the speed to get open.

With five offers to his credit, Fox is showing college coaches that he has the talent to play at the next level, but his best position could end up being on the defensive side of the football.

Sunday evening saw Fox perform in Cleveland at the Raw Talent Sports weekly workout, and he had the opportunity to guard current Philadelphia Eagle and former West Virginia wide receiver Shelton Gibson (see above video).

Although he needs to refine his technique as a defensive back, Fox showed enough to make people think his future might end up being as a cornerback.

"I really liked the way the kid competed," Gibson stated. "He has quick feet and he really battles out there. I think he can be a really good defensive back, because he showed no fear at all."

Fox has the height and length at 6-foot, 180-pounds, and the requisite hip recovery needed to play on an island against top flight wide receivers at cornerback. He also has terrific ball skills.

"My offers are from Eastern Kentucky, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Toledo and Bowling Green," Fox stated. "I would say Toledo and Eastern Michigan are sticking out of that group, because those two are recruiting me the hardest."

"I'm being recruited mostly for wide receiver, but some schools are now looking at me as a defensive back," he added. "I tell everyone that I will play anywhere they need me to play. I just want to get on the field."

"The bigger schools looking at me are Michigan, Ohio State, Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Indiana," he continued. "hopefully one of these bigger schools will offer, but I'm just going to keep working on getting better. I will be going to a lot of camps on the Raw Talent Sports bus tour this summer."

Fox is currently ranked as the No. 67 player in the state of Ohio for the class of 2019 by 247Sports.
