South's No 19 Safety, Brian Edwards, De-Commits From the Miami Hurricanes

Brian Edwards, who checks in as the 19th-ranked safety in the South, is now back on the recruiting market after de-committing from the Miami Hurricanes.

Miramar (Fla.) standout and the sixth-ranked safety in the Sunshine State, Brian Edwards, has opted to take a step back and de-commit from the nearby Miami (Fl) Hurricanes, as first reported by Scout.

Edwards, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound senior, possesses an offer sheet consisting of nearly 25 schools, including FloridaLouisvilleUSCClemsonLouisvilleKentucky and Mississippi State.

"I'm de-committing from Miami," Edwards told Scout. "I'm doing so to reopen my recruiting, and to be able to think my decision through better.

"It was really tough because I have love for the U, but they still stand at the top with the other schools. Visits are coming out soon."

Edwards, who previously made a commitment to the Louisville Cardinals as well, verbally pledged to Mark Richt's program after attending Miami's talent-loaded Paradise Camp over the summertime.

Edwards has yet to lock in any official visit dates, but already knows of all five visit destinations.

"Louisville, Colorado, Florida, Nebraska and Miami," Edwards said.

Edwards checks in with that coveted, top-notch size for the safety position, and currently projects best as a free safety. This lengthy defender analyzes and picks things up quickly, but needs to continue to season up his overall tackling, including wrapping up in space.

Edwards' anticipation also allows him to get a good break on the football more often than not. 

Stay tuned to Scout.
