Conway High School freshman wide receiver Bryan Edwards is now the happy owner of offers from the state's two BCS programs.
"At first, it was just shocking. To be a freshman and being able to get offered by a big school like Clemson, it was just all a surprise to me," Edwards recently told CUTigers.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound freshman received the news from Conway head coach Chuck Jordan.
"I didn't really know that they were thinking. Coach Jordan, he talked to Dabo [Swinney]. Then, after a while of conversation with him, he offered me," Edwards said
As for the South Carolina offer, "It was real special.
"I was around coach Jordan and they were just congratulating me. It was amazing."
The class of 2016 prospect will make his first visit to Clemson later this spring.
"I don't really know about the school, education-wise. I see it on TV and they're pretty good, football-wise," Edwards said.
He's impressed with the Tigers' offense.
"I think they have a lot of weapons up there in that offense. They have Tajh Boyd, two very good wide receivers," Edwards said.
Along with the in-state schools, Georgia has also started to recruit Edwards.
"I liked Georgia, because one of my favorite players is A.J. Green, but I haven't really had time to think out favorites," Edwards said.
As a freshman, he finished the season with 17 catches for 500 yards with nine touchdowns.
