4-star DE Brenton Cox, down to Georgia and Ohio State, pushes back commitment date

Brenton Cox

Coaches at Georgia and Ohio State will have to wait a little longer to find out the college destination for four-star defensive end Brenton Cox. He announced on Twitter that he won’t be making his decision Sunday after all.

Cox made an unofficial visit to Columbus last weekend and 247Sports reports that he is expected to visit Athens to take in the Bulldogs G-Day spring game Saturday.

Cox (6 feet 4, 247 pounds) is from Stockbridge (Ga.) High, in the Atlanta suburbs. He is one of the nation’s top-three strongside defensive ends and a top-60 prospect overall.

Cox also holds offers from, among others, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri and Tennessee.

Georgia outside linebacker coach Kevin Sherrer and Ohio State defensive line coach Larry Johnson are the primary recruiters for his two finalists.

Georgia currently has two players pledged in its 2018 class. The two commitments are from four-star outside linebacker Adam Anderson and three-star inside linebacker Donovan Georges.
