The saga of Four Star Ohio Safety Mike Edwards has been an interesting one to follow. First came chatter this weekend that he may be ready to commit to Kentucky and soon (he was the player I was referring to when I tweeted that I had heard a commitment announcement could occur on Monday). Then on Monday morning, Edwards tweeted that his High School Coach didn’t want to let him commit because he didn’t feel he was ready, followed by Monday evening, when Edwards tweeted that he will announce a decision sometime before his high school season starts. According to Edwards, he wants to wait and allow his parents to visit the schools he is interested in with him and then announce his decision. But he also adds that the school he was going to commit to now is who he will commit to then…and that has to make Kentucky fans happy.
Edwards is a huge talent that some believe could become one of the top ranked players in the state of Ohio in the final round of evaluations. He has been recruited by everyone and if he ends up a Cat, it would be a huge get. However whether due to his High School coach or other factors, an announcement that seemed imminent this week looks to have been pushed back for at least some amount of time.
