At one time Richie Edwards was a recruit that Illinois was seriously looking at for the Class of 2009, but according to Edwards it's cooled off a little. "I haven't had much contact with Illinois lately. I still get letters, but that's about it. I'm not mad or disappointed; I do like them because of Coach Jay Price and Mike Davis - we used to play AAU basketball together," said Edwards.
"I'm interested in playing in the Big Ten and the Pac Ten, but the two schools that've shown the most interest in me are Houston and UCF. I think UCF may offer, but they're waiting for things to clear up. One school that's offered me is Saint Mary's," stated Edwards.
The list of schools Edwards receives letters and contacts from are: UCF, Houston, Illinois, Iowa, Saint Mary's (CA), Kansas State and Miami (FL).
