Tyler Edwards, the 6-foot-4, 238 pound tight end from Ouachita Parish High School in Monroe (La.), says that in the last week he's received scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Florida State and most recently, Tulane on April 24.
However, none of those schools have broken into Edwards' top five. He continues to favors LSU solidly over Miami, Alabama, Michigan and Florida, all of whom have offered.
"Jimbo Fisher (Florida State's new Offensive Coordinator from LSU) told me that if I work hard, I could play as a freshman," Edwards said. "That's definitely important to me. I probably wouldn't be able to play at LSU until I was a sophomore."
Edwards has all the offers he needs, so he won't be making any camp or combine appearances over the summer. "But this summer I will be taking trips (unofficial) to Michigan, Miami and Florida. I'll probably be going on these trips alone," he said.
Edwards reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 22 ACT. "I'm qualified," he said.
