Nation's 60th-Ranked CB Miguel Edwards Finds a Home With the Oklahoma Sooners

Miguel Edwards, the nation's 60th-ranked cornerback, just committed to the Oklahoma Sooners while visiting campus.

Miguel Edwards labeled Oklahoma as the leader when speaking with Scout roughly three weeks ago, and is now committed after making the trek up to Norman for a visit on Friday.

Edwards, who straps up the pads for talent-rich Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High, checks in as the nation's 60th-ranked cornerback on Scout.

AlabamaMiami (Fl)LouisvilleAuburnNorth Carolina and Wisconsin are some additional schools that extended offers to Edwards, who says his brief stay in Big 12 country has been everything he anticipated, and more.

"I fell in love with the school and what it has to offer for not just football, but also academics," Edwards said. "I feel as if it was the place I always dreamed to be.

"The campus is amazing. Norman itself, it didn't feel too different from home, as if I have been here before. It's just nothing but positive vibes in Norman."

Edwards, who is equipped with nearly two-dozen offers overall, believes this is the ideal situation and says the Sooners' staff has done nothing but welcome him with open arms.

"The staff welcoming me was great," Edwards said. "They love guys who compete, love the game, and have a purpose in the sport. I also feel like I have the defensive scheme down."

Edwards attacks the box with impressive closing speed and physicality, and is instinctual with a great feel for the game as well. He also does a nice job of wrapping up and striking with good pad level.

Edwards is an intelligent football player who plays a number of roles for his team, but could also settle down at safety when it is all said and done. Edwards has to continue to dive into the weight room to pack on weight, but anticipates and covers a significant amount of ground.

This South Florida native also impresses with his ability to meet the receiver at the football.

"Oklahoma is getting a leader on and off the field," Edwards said. "Also, someone who is going to compete and make the guys around me just want to compete and go hard."

Edwards, who is also highlighted as the 23rd-ranked cornerback in the South, is commitment No. 6 in the Sooners' 2018 recruiting haul.

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
