Ex-UCR forward Fox visiting
Apparently, Josh Fox wants another crack at the Big West Conference.
Fox, a former forward at UC Riverside, is taking an official visit to Hawaii this weekend as a recruit for the 2014 season. He attends City College of San Francisco this season and would have two years of eligibility should he complete his associates degree on schedule. (Should he pick UH, there would be no penalty wait time for his prior affiliation with the Big West, because of the time he spent at a JUCO in between.)
The 6-foot-6 Fox, who plays small or power forward, averaged 9.3 points and 6.5 rebounds per game for the 6-25 Highlanders last season. He played in 27 contests, including two against UH, before his season came to an end four games prematurely because of a torn ACL. He shot 45.6 percent from the field and 63.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Against UH, he had 12 points and six boards in a 76-61 loss to the 'Bows in Honolulu, and 10 points and six caroms in a 72-68 defeat to visiting UH in Riverside. He had a similar role for his team that Isaac Fotu did for UH.
Fox attended Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep in the Bay Area for high school, the same school as UH women's forward Kamilah Jackson.
Chances are he'll observe at least one Rainbow Warriors practice while he's here.
