Chosen 25 SG Anthony Edwards commits to Georgia

Postado Fevereiro 13, 2019

That alone has got to be enough to get Bulldogs fans excited.

Edwards, who is an excellent scorer, could immediately become Georgia's No. 1 offensive option in 2019-20 despite the fact that the Bulldogs are expected to return four of their top five players from this year's squad. Rayshaun Hammonds, Nicolas Claxton, Tyree Crump, and TeShaun Hightower are the four players.

Though he is joining the 39th ranked recruiting class for next year with two four-star talents in Carver High School's Combo Guard Jaykwon Walton and Chaminade-Madonna Prep's Small Forward Toumani Camara, the nation's best prospect is optimistic about Georgia's chances next year.

"I chose Georgia because two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, was coached by Tom Crean and he's a great coach with player development", Edwards told CBS Sports HQ, via college basketball writer Adam Zagoria of Zagsblog.

Kentucky now has the ninth-ranked 2019 recruiting class in the 247Sports rankings. A slight ratings adjustment or even one commitment or decommitment could completely shift the placement of both programs.

When news began to leak that Holy Spirit Prep (Atlanta) shooting guard Anthony Edwards cancelled his official visit to Florida State this past weekend, it raised eyebrows as his decision loomed a day after he was due to return. Some of his highlights are absolutely incredible, showing that he can live above the rim. He narrowed down his final commitment decision to Georgia, Florida State, and Kentucky amid an offer sheet that included 16 schools.

Edwards reclassified in November from the class of 2020 ahead of the season at Atlanta's Holy Spirit Academy, where he is averaging 26.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals a game and also shooting 38 percent from 3-point range.
