Edwards is an extremely athletic floor general who can also play off the ball. He first began to get serious interest from Purdue during the month of April, and the Boilermakers have been all in on him ever since.

Purdue brought Edwards in for an official visit during the month of June, and since then they have led in this recruitment.

Along with Purdue, Edwards had significant interest from SMU, Vanderbilt, and Kansas State among others. In the end though, it was Purdue that had done the most work and got the commitment.
