Mike Edwards finds out he doesn’t need shoulder surgery, will enroll at UK tomorrow

mike-edwards

It’s been a rough offseason for the UK secondary. Freshmen safeties Mike Edwards and Darius West have both gone down with injury, Edwards to his shoulder and West to his leg, and were thought to miss the season. However, Edwards (aka “Badger”) tweeted a few minutes ago that he found out he doesn’t need shoulder surgery and will be able to enroll at UK for his freshman season. In fact, he’s headed to Lexington tomorrow.

Even though we still don’t know the extent of Edwards’ injury and how long it will take him to get back to full speed, this is good news. Even if he redshirts, he’ll have an edge on the competition next season.

    That’s HUGE news! Don’t know if everyone knows how high this kid’s ceiling is AND that it wasn’t certain that he would ever come back.

    Great news! Maybe there will be a extra ray of hope that cousin George WON’T go to Fl with the possibility of Mike playing now

      Great point. I’m rooting for every team UF plays this season with hopes that we can get George Brown, and also Marcus Lewis who was high on UK at one point, and a teammate of Jabari Greenwood. STOOPS

    Does no surgery equate to physically cleared to play? I assume he is so far behind a red shirt would be in order anyway, just wondering if he will be able to participate in practice now? Later in the year?
