LOOK: No. 1 recruit Anthony Edwards sports Kentucky jersey on visit

Anthony Edwards, the No. 1 recruit in the 2019 class according to 247 Sports, is on Kentucky’s campus right now for an official visit. To be specific, he’s in the Kentucky locker room, where he’s rocking a Kentucky uniform (looks like Matthew Hurt started a tradition).

The five-star guard is chronicling his official visit on Instagram, where he posted these videos to his story:

Edwards arrived in Lexington last night and was greeted by a cookie cake and lots of sweets in his hotel room:

Edwards will be in Rupp tonight for the Mississippi State game. Right now, Florida State and Georgia seem to be the teams to beat for the Atlanta native, but Kentucky could pick up some major ground this week. Evan Daniels recently compared the combo guard to James Harden and said he’s on track to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Landing him would be absolutely huge.

      Most highlight reels are a bit underwhelming IMO. You can’t tell anything about a player’s college potential based on their highschool highlights.

      Football brings in more money and is more exciting to watch. Hopefully we become more focused on FOOTBALL!

    If he’s like Harden there’s NO WAY he comes here! He’s not getting 30 shots a game here!!

      Jaws, I believe they mean he has that type of talent. But yes, you’re absolutely right. He’ll not come here and shoot 30 a game, however, he’s a kid kinda like Brandon Knight, as in he can be a good point and still be a great scorer. I think this kid is actually better than Kinght and that’s really saying something because I loved his heart for the game.
      . Edwards is just one of those kids that’s a true Alfa dog and he’s going to be in the conversation as the best player in the country as a freshman. He’s already unbelievable, but five years from now he’ll be a NBA ALL STAR. I sure hope he loves what he’s seeing today and falls in love with KY, if so, we’ll automatically be FINAL FOUR bound. Thanks jaws.
