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.
