Numerous schools in with Edwards
It has been a busy spring and summer so far for Hyron Edwards. The East Chicago (Ind.) Central point guard has been on the adidas Gauntlet with Indiana Elite as well as participating in numerous camps. Now he is beginning to think about an upcoming college decision. The last big camp for Edwards was the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp, and it is a place where Edwards says he learned a lot. "I learned a lot," said Edwards. "I learned from former players who played at the Top 100 Camp who made it to the NBA, and they are a great bunch of guys and I learned a lot." Recruiting wise Edwards continues to hear from numerous schools. "Tennessee just called, UNLV, California, Purdue, those schools are all in the mix," noted Edwards. While Cuonzo Martin hasn't been at California long, he has been recruiting Edwards for a long time starting when he was at Tennessee, and the two of them have a good relationship. "My relationship with Coach Martin is great," said Edwards. "We talk about more than just basketball, we talk about life. He is talking about having me down there for a visit, and when I do hopefully Cameron Walker from the Compton Magic will visit with me, we are good friends." The school that has probably been after Edwards the longest is Purdue, and he has a good relationship with those coaches as well. "The situation at Purdue is good," said Edwards. "It is close to home so my mom and dad could easily come and see me. Purdue is a school I like a lot." Also things have picked back up with Tennessee. Tennessee was a top option for Edwards before the coaching change, and now he is beginning to hear from the Volunteers again. "They just called my dad and have been texting me," explained Edwards. "They want me to come down for a campus visit. I think it is good to hear from them and I hope to see the campus and talk to them more." In terms of what he will be looking for in a school when he does commit, Edwards said, "I want a coach who will make me work. I don't want a coach who will hand something to me or give me promises. I want a coach who will push me to hopefully get to the next level."
