Jeannette senior Demetrious Cox, after visiting Wisconsin this weekend, has decided to announce his decision on his college future Monday.

Cox's final four are Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State. Michigan State coaches were at the Jeannette basketball game on Friday when he scored his 1,000th career point in a loss to Frazier.

Cox, the Tribune-Review Player of the Year, played quarterback and safety for the Jayhawks and helped them reach the WPIAL Class AA championship where they lost to Aliquippa.

He also was a first-team all-state defensive back.

Players can sign a national letter of intent Wednesday.
