Edwards talks early offers

As one of the top point guards in the 2015 class, Hyron Edwards is already pulling in some significant offers.

For East Chicago (Ind.) Central guard Hyron Edwards it has been a very good spring and summer. His Indiana Elite squad lost exactly one game before Memorial Day, and he has been a huge reason for that success. Now the early offers are beginning to pile up.

"The summer's been great," said Edwards. "I have gotten a lot of exposure playing with Indiana Elite and it has gone well."

So far the list of schools recruiting Edwards is a long one. The class of 2015 prospect already has some of the premier schools in the Midwest tracking his every move.

"Michigan, Indiana, DePaul, Stanford, Michigan State, Illinois, Purdue, Miami, and some other schools have been sending letters and talking to my coaches," said Edwards.

With that he is not going to allow the early attention to get to his head.

"I just keep on working in the gym and keep on lifting weights and working on my game," he said. "I am trying to work on my ball handling more and my shooting more. Also I want to get stronger."

The first school to offer Edwards was Indiana. The home state Hoosiers pulled the trigger on the offer after watching him in Las Vegas during the month of April, and he says it was big to get the offer.

"Indiana offering me felt great," said Edwards. "They have a lot of great players. Trey Lyles is a great player and he has committed, also James Blackmon. I was pretty happy about the offer."

Right after Indiana, it was Purdue that stepped forward and issued an offer.

"Purdue is a great school as well," Edwards explained. "Having both of them offer me is great. I like Purdue and it is close to home."

One school that has indicated they will offer, but not for another year is Michigan. The Wolverines have a policy not to offer before June 15 before a prospect's junior year.

"They say they like my overall game," Edwards said of the Wolverines. "They really like me and they want me, so they will offer me when it is time."

At the moment Edwards says he is in absolutely no hurry to select a school and hasn't given too much thought to a decision.
