CB Evrett Edwards Profile
Among the stops Venables made in the mid-Atlantic region this week was
Woodbridge High School in Virginia. There, he checked in on cornerback
Evrett Edwards, who committed to Duke last month.
"My parents are preaching to me: options, options, options. The more
options, the better," Edwards told CUTigers on Thursday.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect was impressed with the Tigers' decision
to stop by.
"That's extraordinary, for that quick of results to happen," he said.
Edwards had good things to say about Clemson.
"They're an SEC team playing in the ACC. It's a great location. My
councilor [at school] actually went to Clemson. So during this whole
football recruiting process I've heard: Clemson, Clemson, Clemson, from
her," he said.
Clemson has not offered, but Duke, Boston College, Illinois, Ohio, Wake
Forest and West Virginia have.
Might the Tigers jump on board with an offer?
"They told my coach they'll be in contact."
This spring, Edwards made trips to Duke, Virginia, Illinois and
Clemson could host him in the future.
"I'll hit the camp circuit this summer. That's a school that I definitely
want to go to a camp for," he said.
As a junior, Edwards had 40 tackles, six interceptions, seven pass
breakups and two blocked field goals.
