5-Star Recruit Anthony Edwards Commits to Georgia

Georgia coach Tom Crean speaks during the SEC men’s NCAA college basketball media day in Birmingham Ala. More

Edwards, whose nickname is "Ant Man", chose Georgia over Kentucky and Florida State.

A natural scorer from the two-guard position, Tom Crean would figure to be the ideal fit to shape the talents of a kid like Edwards, who told 247Sports that his favorite players both happen to have been Crean products from years' past: Victor Oladipo and Dwyane Wade. Tom Crean is a great dude, and I believe in him coaching me and developing me. That does still rank one spot behind the 2019 Texas basketball recruiting class. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy".

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.

He is also the first top-ranked Georgia prospect to opt to attend college in his home state since Kentavious Caldwell-Pope did so in 2011.

'Trumpworld Associate' Leaked Those Scandalous Texts From Amazon's Bezos
The person says those investigators identified Michael Sanchez, a California talent manager, as the person who leaked the texts. The investigators have not said how they believe Mr Sanchez came into possession of his sister's intimate messages.

He noted Georgia coach Tom Crean's relationship with two National Basketball Association stars as a factor in his decision.

After landing the commitment from the ultra talented Anthony Edwards on February 11, head coach Tom Crean and the Dawgs 2019 recruiting class obviously skyrocketed up the national class rankings.

In his first year of coaching the Bulldogs, Crean has deep ties to Wade, whom he coached while at Marquette from 2001-2003 and instructed Victor Oladipo at IN from 2010-2013. "They came in not highly rated and they came out, Dwyane Wade a really good player has had a really good career so it weighed big on me". "When I went to a game (at Georgia), I felt the fans and the gym, everybody showing love, it felt like I was home". As a senior at Holy Spirit, Edwards has been averaging 26.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game.

Edwards was a McDonald's All-American selection this year.
