Brenton Cox signed his Letter of Intent.

Brenton Cox, a five-star defensive lineman in the 2018 class, has announced some major recruiting news. After decommitting from Ohio State just two weeks ago, Cox has signed his Letter of Intent.

The 6-foot-4, 247-pound defensive end out of Georgia has committed to his home state.

Early National Signing Day has been kind to Kirby Smart and company, who already landed five five-star recruits before landing the No. 2 strong-side defensive end in the country.

According to 247Sports' Composite Rankings, the Dawgs landed six of the top 22 recruits from the 2018 class. It looks like finding success in the SEC and making the College Football Playoff is doing wonders for the Georgia brand.

Expect the Bulldogs to compete for SEC titles right alongside Alabama in the years to come.
