Edwards having quality season

Hyron Edwards is having a good season, and a few schools are still very much involved in his recruitment.

One of the better unsigned senior point guards in the country is East Chicago (Ind.) Central standout Hyron Edwards. After an up and down spring and summer on the AAU circuit, Edwards has turned things up as a senior and is having a good season.

The 6-foot floor general is shooting the ball better and making better decisions, and feels that things are going well.

“We have started off really solid,” said Edwards. “I am trying to lead my team and the season is going great.”

He continued, “I have improved my jumper a lot and my overall game has just gotten better. I know I have to be a leader and someone who can make big shots when my team needs me.”

Recruiting wise many of the schools that initially were heavily involved in Edwards’ recruitment are no longer in the mix for a guard, but he says two schools are definitely in the mix.

“Right now Tennessee and California are standing out and contacting me a lot, so it is those two at the moment,” noted Edwards.

In terms of where he is in the recruiting process, Edwards said, “I have to wait until I get my SAT score back before I am going to make visits, so my dad and I have been kind of chill on the process and I am focused on my season.”

With him being focused on the season, Edwards says that he thinks he and his teammates can accomplish big things before the end of the year.

“We can do big things,” said Edwards. “We just have to keep playing. We are doing great so far, so I really think we can accomplish some special things.”
