Four-star defensive end Alex McCalister (Clemmons, N.C./West Forsyth) verbally committed to the Florida Gators on Monday, just after his official visit this past weekend to Gainesville.
McCalister chose the Gators over Georgia Tech and in-state team North Carolina.
McCalister is being recruited by Florida to play its buck position, a hybrid defensive end/linebacker position. Bryan Cox Jr. (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas), also recruited for the buck position, committed to Florida on Saturday.
With the addition of McCalister, the Gators now have 20 verbal commitments for the 2012 class.
