Edwards talks Clemson

CONWAY, S.C. - Bryan Edwards is one of the top 2016 prospects in the South. The Conway (S.C.) star spoke with FOX Sports Next about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Last fall, Bryan Edwards picked up his first scholarship offer as a 13-year-old freshman.

Now, he has multiple offers and is looking forward to a big sophomore season.

"I think I'm at four offers – South Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Florida," said the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Edwards. "I'm also getting mail from Florida State every now and then."

The Conway star said there is one school he hoped to hear from in the near future.

"I'd like to hear from Georgia," said Edwards. "They had a great wide receiver come through there – A.J. Green – and I always grew up watching him."

Edwards knows his strengths as a player, but is constantly working to get better.

"I think my strength is making plays downfield," Edwards said. "But this season, I'm just trying to become a better all-around player. I want to be able to do it all."

Although it is early in the recruiting process, Edwards admitted that a few schools have impressed him.

"Clemson – because I've had some family go there," Edwards said. "And I've been around their program a little bit and I know a little bit about it. South Carolina, too."

He was able to camp at one of those schools this summer.

"Clemson was a really nice camp," he said. "I got be see all the facilities and see how they treat the players at Clemson. It was just a fun experience being there with my teammates. My favorite part was being in the new facility they have"

The Conway standout was able to spend some time with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney.

"He preached just working hard and focusing on little things because little things make you a great player," said Edwards. "Especially at wide receiver – running routes, slowing down steps – stuff like that."

He does not have any visits set for the fall, but plans to take some trips.

"I'll probably go anywhere schools ask me to go, just for fun and to see good games" he said.

Edwards has high expectations this season.

"I haven't set any individual goals," he said. "I just want to help my team win every game. We can be as good as we want to be. If we keeping working hard like we did this summer, I think the sky is the limit."

Conway takes on Wilmington (N.C.) New Hanover this Saturday.
