Before the season began Emoryie Edwards had already drawn plenty of interest from several universities as a dynamic and versatile wide receiver. Now that the season is over Edwards has further solidified his position as one of the top receivers in the section while leading his team to a first round bye in the playoffs.
Emoryie Edwards finished the season with 1,397 yards receiving with 17 touchdowns making him the top receiver in the Central Section and 3rd in the State of California. As Tulare Union readies itself for the playoffs, the young receiver continues to turn heads. As a junior Edwards has already received offers from BYU, Eastern Washington, Duke, and Washington State while gaining interest from others such as Colorado, Oregon, Washington, Utah, UCLA, and local University Fresno State.
At 6-foot-0 180 pounds Edwards is one of Tulare Union’s favorite passing target. Edwards is quickly demonstrating to be a well rounded player. As a receiver he has some of the best hands in the area. His agility and athleticism makes him as one of the most explosive players as well. Edwards has a great feel and awareness to find soft spots in the defense allowing him to make plays when necessary. Edwards also doubles as a CB defensively and has the skills to play that position very well.
FRESNO STATE IMPACT:
With all of the early interest from several universities one thing is for certain, Edwards could be one of the most sought after players of the 2018 recruiting class in the Valley. With an offer from Washington State and former teammate currently on the Washington State squad, that would make the Cougers the current favorite. Now that Fresno State has hired Jeff tedford as the head coach and the sudden change of recruiting philosophy to recruit the valley, look for Fresno State to make a push for Edwards in the upcoming season. Edwards is open to taking a hard look at the Bulldogs and now could be the right opportunity to do so.
