Cox received his scholarship offer from UK last week, and was quick to jump on the opportunity to become a Wildcat.

An unranked prospect in the Class of 2019, Cox chose to stay home and play for UK over offers from Army, Austin Peay, Ball State, Cincinnati, Cornell, Eastern Kentucky, Georgia State, Liberty, Marshall, Ohio, Toledo and Western Michigan. Louisville and Purdue have also shown interest in the 6-4, 300-pound lineman.
Cox visited during UK’s spring game last month and admits he comes from a family of UK fans.
