Big 12 Program Inches out Front for South's No. 23 CB Miguel Edwards

Tagged as one of the premier cornerbacks in the South, 2018 prospect Miguel Edwards could be closing in on making his college commitment.

Miguel Edwards, the nation's 59th-ranked cornerback, has a front-runner in his recruitment and plans to visit that school over the next couple of weeks.

With offers on the table from nearly 20 colleges, including AlabamaMiami (Fl)AuburnWisconsin and Kentucky, Edwards says the Oklahoma Sooners are now sitting atop his list with the spring evaluation period in full swing.

"I've been watching them ever since entering high school," Edwards said. "I love their defensive scheme, and I really like Kerry Cooks as a defensive backs coach.

"I love their coverages. I love to play man-to-man and outwork your receiver."

With a clear-cut leader highlighting his recruitment, is the Deerfield Beach (Fla.) star inching closer to the recruiting finish line?

"I think I'm pretty close to (making) a decision," Edwards said.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Edwards has manufactured a tight-knit relationship with coach Kerry Cooks, and is now ready to take it a step further by journeying up to Norman to see everything himself.

"I talk to him a lot," Edwards said. "He just tells me positive things about the school; it's not always football.

"I'm looking forward to the atmosphere, school, and meeting all the coaches."

Edwards, the 23rd-ranked cornerback in the South, has no additional visits scheduled at this time.
