This talented two-way threat talks recruiting and gives his thoughts on Auburn.

Fort Myers, Fla.--One of the most impressive players to attend Auburn's passing camp last week was Antavian Edison from Dunbar High. A lockdown corner who can also play wide receiver, Edison was one of the reasons why a 10-man team from Dunbar made it all the way to the championship round before running out of steam.

A 5-9, 170 cornerback with 4.47 speed in the 40-yard dash, Edison has been a starter since his freshman season for Dunbar and is one of those players who shines the brightest when the lights are on and doesn‘t worry about honors or recognition. "I don't even remember my stats from last year," Edison says. "I just go out there and play. Whatever my stats come up to then that's fine."

As a sophomore Edison led Dunbar with 664 rushing yards from his running back position and nine touchdowns. In 2007 as a junior he split time between running back and wide receiver and added 344 yards and two scores on the ground, 292 yards and five touchdowns through the air on 18 receptions. He also added 21 tackles and an interception on defense.

Because of his ability to make plays on the field Edison says he's hearing from colleges and currently has just one offer. He notes that he's hoping to add to that list in the coming weeks and months with one school at the top right now.

"Right now I have an offer from Duke," Edison says. "Auburn is where my main focus is to be honest with you."

While he admits not knowing much about the Auburn program, Edison adds that he's just always been a fan of the Tigers and that was made even stronger with his visit last week.

"I just know from seeing them on TV," Edison says. "It's a school that I always wanted to attend. That was my first time seeing the camps and getting familiar with it."

Edison says his team is scheduled to take a trip to Georgia for a passing camp as well and he's hoping to get back to Auburn in July for the one-day senior camp.
