Three stand out to Edwards

Ben Edwards is a prospect on the rise in recruiting circles. The 2015 Jacksonville safety has received a number of offers within the past six months. He has three schools standing out and a few visits during the season he'd like to make.

2015 safety Ben Edwards is one of the reasons why many college coaches have flocked to Trinity Christian in Jacksonville, Florida.

The outstanding prospect has garnered several early offers that include Auburn, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Missouri, Maryland, Boston College, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Indiana, and Stanford, among others.

Three of the scholarship offers that Edwards has been awarded with are standing out early on.

"I'm liking Auburn, North Carolina, and Georgia Tech so far," said Edwards. "I have a great relationship with the coaches at those schools and they have been cool with me from the beginning."

The Jacksonville safety talked about his interest in Auburn.

"For Auburn, their coaches love the way I play," Edwards pointed out. "I went there or a visit and got to watch some tape and see the scheme they run. They showed me how I would fit into it. I stay in touch with them and they love my film."

The Tar Heels have also made a strong impression on Edwards.

"I like the style of defense that North Carolina plays," he noted. "They have had a reputation of sending a lot of guys to the NFL and they have showed me a lot of attention. I get along with the coaches there well."

Georgia Tech is a school the standout from Florida has visited and the Yellow Jackets have expressed to Edwards how important a target he is to them.

"I call Coach (Lamar) Owens from Georgia Tech a lot," he mentioned. "They say I'm one of the top prospects their recruiting for the class of 2015. They like the way I play too. The Georgia Tech coaches came and watched me play at my spring game. They liked what they saw and they have told me that I have a real good chance to play early."

"I visited Georgia Tech for my spring break," he added. "Me and my family got to see a few of their practices. It was fast. They weren't in pads yet but they were getting after it. They have a real good staff and look like they can be real good this upcoming season."

The 6-foot, 195 pound Edwards has plans to hit the road and see a few college games in the coming months.

"I'll be going to the Georgia Tech games when they face North Carolina and Georgia," said Edwards. "I'll also visit North Carolina and Auburn for a game at their places. I'd also like to take a visit to a Stanford game."
