Excel Esports signed British Fortnite player Jacob “Verox” Gilbert to their roster on Thursday.

Verox is joined by Freeman “FreeMedou” Williams, who assumed the role of manager of the British-based organization.

“What drew me to signing with Excel was knowing that they have a great performance coaching structure and facilities where I can practice,” Verox said. “I am also looking forward to growing as a player and working with Excel to create some great content to share with my fans.”

Verox has made seven FNCS finals appearances, including a top-place finish at DreamHack Open Solo finals and 10 top placements in Fortnite Cash Cups. His first tournament with Excel Esports will be the Fortnite Championship Series Chapter 2 Season 7 event on July 29.

“At Excel, we are committed to nurturing the best talent so when the opportunity to sign a home-grown player like Verox came up we knew we had to take it,” said Kieran Holmes-Darby, co-founder and chief gaming officer of Excel Esports.

“Verox is an extremely talented individual and has shown an incredible amount of consistency over recent periods. Fortnite is a fantastic game title that is constantly changing, keeping it fresh for viewers of the competitive side of the game and I can’t wait to see Verox rocking the XL tag at his next tournament.”
