Cox gives insight on McCalister decision

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- New Florida linebacker commit Bryan Cox Jr. (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) wasted no time helping the Gators recruit other 2012 prospects.

Cox, who verbally committed to the Gators on Saturday morning, tweeted the following about four-star defensive end prospect Alex McCalister:

"S/O to @Mccalisterr he gone commit to the Gators on Monday!!! #GatorNation show him love."

McCalister arrived on his Florida visit on Saturday afternoon and will not leave until Sunday night. He will be making his decision on Monday at 1 p.m. ET between Georgia Tech, Florida and North Carolina, but most feel his decision will be between Florida and Georgia Tech.

Cox said he and McCalister spent time together Saturday hanging out, and when asked to clarify his tweet about McCalister, he responded with a resounding: "He will."
