Edwards looking to refine game

Junior Hyron Edwards has always been a great athlete, now he is out to show his improved skill level.

Four-star combo guard Hyron Edwards has been on the recruiting radar since very early in his high school career. The East Chicago (Ind.) Central standout is one of the best athletes you will see from the lead guard position, and now he is looking to refine his game even more.

At 5-foot-11, Edwards has elite level quickness and is a big time athlete, but now he is out to prove he is more consistent and well-rounded as a player.

"I am getting my teammates involved and we are shooting the ball well, so I like the way we are playing right now," said Edwards.

He continued, "My teammates have seen me open and I have just been making threes and making shots, it is something I have been working on."

Recruiting wise schools like Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, Michigan, and Michigan State have been recruiting Edwards for a while.

He now says however one new school has been very active in the recruitment.

"I've been hearing from Xavier a lot," said Edwards of the Musketeers. "They said they are going to offer me soon. They were at practice on Wednesday and they talked about offering, so that was good."

He continued about Xavier, "They just want to see me progress with my teammates and get them better. They also want me to visit pretty soon."

The Purdue Boilermakers have been seen as a potential favorite for Edwards for quite some time, and he says he is very high on the school.

"Purdue is a pretty nice school," said Edwards. "Their coaches always call me and text me. They have been pretty good. They just talk to me about how my game is coming along, school, and things outside of basketball. We talk about a lot of different things."

Location is one of, if not the biggest, selling point for the Boilermakers.

"It is close to home so my family can come see me play any time," Edwards explained. "It is only about an hour away so that is pretty good."

For now no visits are set up for Edwards, and he says he is in no rush to end his recruitment.
