About a month ago, 3-star safety Mike Edwards was on the verge of committing to UK, but postponed his announcement due to pressure from his coach and family to take his time with his search. If his Twitter account is any indication, Edwards is still very interested in UK, and today, will bring his parents to Lexington to tour the campus and meet the staff. Having his parents on board for his decision is very important to Mike, who is ranked the 28th best safety in the nation by Rivals. He’s also got offers from Louisville, Nebraska, Missouri, Vandy and Wisconsin, among others.
Edwards and Darius West have gone on record saying they want to play college ball together, and Edwards is also close friends with Derek Kief. Landing Edwards would be a big enough deal on its own, but add in the other two and it would be absolutely huge.
Stay tuned, and if you see the Edwards out and about in Lexington today, please make them feel at home.
