5-Star Recruit Anthony Edwards Commits to Georgia

Georgia Anthony Edwards

The shooting guard visited both Georgia and Kentucky but never accepted an invitation to visit Kansas and North Carolina.

Edwards cited Georgia coach Tom Crean's relationship with two National Basketball Association stars as a factor of why he picked UGA. The Atlanta native also made the hour and a half trek down to Athens for an unofficial visit at least once since his December official visit.

"Two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, were coached by Tom Crean, and he's a great coach", Edwards said, according to 247Sports' Evan Daniels. "When I went to a game (at Georgia), I felt the fans and the gym, everybody showing love, it felt like I was home".

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 trails only Memphis center James Wiseman on the recruiting chart, but is still the top-rated shooting guard and the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Georgia.

Top-five senior Anthony Edwards announced his commitment to Georgia on Monday morning, becoming the Bulldogs' highest-ranked recruit in the ESPN recruiting era.

Originally a member of the 2020 recruiting class, Anthony Edwards recently chose to join the 2019 grouping instead.

Crean, in his first season coaching the Bulldogs, coached Wade at Marquette and Oladipo at Indiana. In a recent ESPN mock draft for 2020, Edwards is selected No. 2 behind Jaden McDaniels.

Edwards, excited about the program's future, has high expectations. He joins consensus four-star prospects Jaykwon Walton, who is a former Miss State commit, and Toumani Camara.
