The Texas Tech Red Raiders got tremendous news on Saturday afternoon when Hyron Edwards made the decision to commit to the Big XII program. A native of Indiana, Edwards is one of the fastest point guards in the entire country.
"It was just the coaches," Edwards told Scout.com "I feel that the team is full of great guys, and Texas Tech just fits me perfectly."
Though Edwards didn't qualify out of high school, he was on the radar for a long time. He received offers from schools like Indiana, Purdue, and Illinois as a high school player, and proved time and time again that he was capable of being an explosive player on both ends of the floor.
Since getting to the junior college level Edwards has really focused to improve his jump shot and decision making. One of the best athletes you will find, Edwards is dynamic in the open floor, and has shown himself to be nearly impossible to contain in transition.
This is a quality pledge for the Red Raiders because Edwards has grown to being one of the better junior college players around, and should provide some stability as an older player with high character for the new coaching staff in Lubbock.
