Freshman's game has high ceiling

Georgia has been loaded with talent for years now with more evidence this year as Colin Sexton, MJ Walker and Wendell Carter were named McDonald's All-Americans. There's a good class brewing in 2020 with the likes of Anthony Edwards, Dwon Odom, Sherife Kinney BJ Boston  and a host of other potential high majors.

Edwards is a standout in that class with great size for the point guard position at 6-4, vision, toughness you want out of your leader,  athleticism and competitiveness. He does a very good job of mixing up his offense with the ability to attack off the dribble or hit the long ball or pull-up. "theres a lot that I have to work on in my game because I want to be the best I can be" stated Edwards. "Coach Jordan and I work on all parts of my game", he continued. Coach Jordan is Wynfred Jordan, Director of the Atlanta Xpress who is also a mentor to Edwards. "I think Ant-Man has the potential to be the best in that class, one of top players in the country" said Jordan.

Edwards decided to make a change this year that was more academics than basketball when he transferred to Holy Spirit from Therrell High School in Atlanta. "I felt that it was important to put a focus on my school work and Holy Spirit has an environment with small class sizes and support to help that".

Edwards will most certainly be a hot target for high majors in the South but has the potential to be a national recruit. He has been on several campuses already but is in no rush to name any favorites, "I have time to watch and observe". He did mention that he's been to Florida State, Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Georgia Tech. 

For those who haven't seen Edwards, you can catch him at the UnderClassman All-American Game March 26th at Wheeler High School. Game time 1:00pm.
