Bryan Cox, Jr. has committed to Florida, according to ESPN’s Derek Tyson, giving the Gators 19 verbals in the Class of 2012. Cox will add some much-needed depth at defensive end and may get an opportunity to play the buck position.

Rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, Cox received the green light to commit this weekend after being asked to wait by the Florida coaching staff.

The Cox commitment makes it three years in a row that the Gators have landed a prospect out of St. Thomas Aquinas, with Cody Riggs signing in 2010 and Marcus Roberson in 2011. Florida will try to dip back into the St. Thomas Aquinas pool again next year for elite Class of 2013 defensive lineman Joey Bosa.

Cox’s father, Bryan Cox, Sr., spent 12 seasons in the NFL.
