"State, Carolina and Tennessee have offered," Edwards told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. Expect that offer list to increase as several schools, including Clemson, Virginia and Auburn, are also showing strong interest in the talented defender.

When asked if he has any early favorites, Edwards responded, "North Carolina and North Carolina State are my current favorites."

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound speedster will get a chance to impress some of the college recruiters this weekend. "I go to the Adidas combine this Saturday," stated the prize recruit. Edwards is not sure where he will camp this summer at this time.

What else is Edwards doing to prepare for his senior season? "I'm still doing track right now. We have our first football practice on May 29th."

Edwards will be playing defensive back on the collegiate level but next year he will get a chance to play both ways. "I will play both offense and defense this year. I will play defensive back and I will also get to play some receiver and running back."

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defensive back from North Carolina, right up through signing day 2005.
