The speculation and rumors surrounding where five star outside linebacker Brenton Cox would end up, have come to an end. The former Georgia Bulldogs who entered the transfer portal in early August has declared Gainesville as his home for the remainder of his collegiate career.

Fans first began to speculate as to whether or not the 6’4″, 245-pound Stockbridge native would end up at Florida after he began following Dan Mullen and Todd Grantham on his Twitter account. Pending NCAA approval of his eligibility waiver, the transfer brings an immediate boost to depth and talent to the Gators’ defense, as Cox was the twenty-third ranked recruit, nationally, in the class of 2018.
Holding a 247Sports composite rating of 0.9867, Cox’s defection will most certainly add some more fuel to the already raging fire that is the Florida/Georgia rivalry. The two schools will meet up at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party on November 2nd, in Jacksonville.
