LB/S Lorenzo Edwards Profile

The 6-2, 220 pound prospect is having a great senior season for Edgewater High.

"We are going great. We lost our first game last week. We are 3-1. I am playing receiver on offense. I'm not sure of all my stats, but I do have three touchdowns. I am playing safety on defense," Edwards told CUTigers.com.

When asked about his current favorites, Edwards responded, "I have narrowed it down to a top five. My top five are Notre Dame, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida and Michigan"

"I am going to take official visits to those five. I am not sure of the dates yet, but I would like to take them during the season to get them out of the way."

The Florida standout recently visited the Irish to see two of his top schools in person.

"I just got back from the Notre Dame game against Michigan," he said. "It was an official visit."

Clemson defensive line coach Chris Rumph is working hard to convince Lorenzo to become a Tiger.

"I get text messages from him almost every day," Edwards said. "He tells me how they are doing. I also got a couple from coach Bowden. He is really nice. He is really high on me because of my character. Clemson calls once a week now."

The prize recruit also said he's watched the last two Clemson victories on television.

"I got to see the Bowden Bowl," he said. "That was a great game. I just turned it from the North Carolina game because Clemson slaughtered them. I watched the first half. That was funny how they had seven rushing touchdowns. Their defense also played great."

What will Lorenzo consider when making a decision between his top five?

"First I will look at academics," he responded. "Then I will look at the people and the coaching staff. I will look at how they will play me. I will see how I fit into the system."

The talented prospect could play several positions at the next level but he knows where he wants to play.

"I want to play safety. All of my top five are recruiting me for safety," he said.

And what about distance? Will travel time be important to Edwards as he makes his final decision?

"It is really not a factor," he said. "Four of my top five are far away from home. I have a cousin that lives near Georgia Tech. I have an aunt that lives in Winston-Salem just a couple of hours from Clemson. I have a former teammate at Michigan. At Notre Dame my family would be my teammates and my coaches."
