Just like that, the recruitment of Anthony Edwards is established to finish.
It wasn’t very long back that Edwards reclassified from the 2020 course into 2019. Now, he’s ready to announce his school conclusion up coming Monday, according to Evan Daniels. Edwards also trimmed his list to just three faculties, as North Carolina was minimize.
Edwards, the No. 1 over-all prospect in the 247Sporting activities Major247, will announce his conclusion at Atlanta (Ga.) Holy Spirit Academy live on CBS Sporting activities HQ at 9:00 AM ET.
The remaining list of faculties for Edwards, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound guard, are Florida State, Ga and Kentucky.
”I simply cannot wait,” Edwards instructed 247Sporting activities.
Edwards is ranked as the No. 1 player in The united states in the course of 2019 by 247Sporting activities. He was originally a 2020 recruit, but he reclassified in November and jumped atop the national rankings.
The 6-5, 215-pound prospect had the Kentucky Wildcats, Ga Bulldogs, Florida State Seminoles Kansas Jayhawks and North Carolina Tar Heels in his remaining five faculties, but he’s considering that minimize the Jayhawks and Tar Heels from consideration.
Edwards took a go to to Kentucky for the gain over Mississippi State, and he later instructed Daniels that he loved his journey to Lexington.
“It was excellent,” Edwards mentioned of the go to. “It was a excellent environment, the video game and the fans at the video game saved declaring ‘we want Ant.’ Mentor Cal is a excellent dude. Kenny Payne is a excellent dude and I’m definitely shut with Ashton [Hagans] and Tyler Herro.”
Hagans is of course from Ga, so that’s surely helped Kentucky’s bring about.
Nevertheless, it’s definitely tough to see Kentucky currently being the choose appropriate now, specially with the Bulldogs receiving a large amount of the buzz a short while ago, though the Seminoles have very long been seen as the favored. My guess is it’s a single of people two, but I’m not counting out John Calipari and Kentucky just nevertheless.
If Edwards were being to choose Kentucky, he would join Tyrese Maxey, Kahlil Whitney and Dontaie Allen in what would be a potent contender for the No. 1 recruiting course in 2019. There’s also a higher likelihood that Kentucky returns at the very least a single of Tyler Herro, Ashton Hagans and Immanuel Quickley. It’s not out of the query that all three return, which would make for a loaded backcourt.
Who do you feel will get Edwards?
