For the second time this recruiting season, the top-ranked player in America has cut Kentucky from his list of prospective schools.
On the day James Wiseman committed to Memphis, swingman Anthony Edwards reclassified to the 2019 class. He immediately jumped Wiseman to become the No. 1 player in the class.
Edwards showed why he’s the No. 1 player in America last night. At the ARS National Hoopfest he scored 41 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in a victory. After the win, Edwards told USA Today’s Jason Jordan he will officially visit Florida State, Duke, Michigan State and Kansas. Edwards previously took an official visit to Georgia.
The news comes five days after Edwards’ high school coach told Kyle Tucker, “I think they have a real shot” at landing Edwards. That “real shot” was always a long shot. Edwards has deep ties to Florida State. Similar to Wiseman and Memphis, Edwards’ recruitment is Florida State’s to lose.
