Top high school basketball recruit Anthony Edwards headed to Georgia

  • 5-star Holy Spirit guard Anthony Edwards makes commitment decision

Tom Crean is a great dude, and I believe in him coaching me and developing me. On top of this, the 6'5 Georgia commit is ranked No. 1 in the state.

Nowadays, we have become accustomed to major names coming out of highly publicized schools making their claims to attend the Goliathic powerhouses like Duke or Kentucky, but Edwards chose to shift the paradigm a little bit and make his decision exclusively off of two factors: an easy commute for the Atlanta native and new Georgia coach Tom Crean's extensive relationship with two other National Basketball Association stars. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy".

On Monday the world found out why when Edwards committed to Georgia over the Seminoles and Kentucky. That does still rank one spot behind the 2019 Texas basketball recruiting class.

The 17-year-old, who took an official visit to Georgia on December 1, added that the opportunity to be coached by Crean was a decisive factor.

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.

Prior to this rollout, Gmail's right-click menu allowed users to archive an email, mark it as read or unread, and delete messages. Those on a slower, more progressive Scheduled Release domain, meanwhile, will begin to get the new menu from February 22.


By landing Edwards, Georgia's 2019 recruiting class - which previously included two four-star commitments in Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara - leapfrogged from 39th in the country to 12th, according to 247Sports. "It weighed big on me".

"I went to a game and I felt the fans in the gym, everybody showing love, and I felt like I was home", Edwards continued.

Originally a 2020 prospect, Edwards reclassified to 2019 in November, which made his recruitment even more electrifying than the 26.7 points and 8.7 rebounds he posts each game this season.

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