It appears that Tyler Junior College power forward Dale Jones is the favorite to fill Iowa's remaining open scholarship in the 2015 Class. The Waterloo native holds an offer and likely will visit in the next few weeks.

"He said that he loves my athleticism and how I run the floor," Edwards said.
Scout.com's Evan Daniels reported that head coaches Mark Fox (Georgia), Bruce Weber (Kansas State), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh), Derek Kellogg (UMass), Tim Miles (Nebraska) and Steve Wojciechowski (Marquette) watched the 6-foot-9 Edwards work out Thursday morning. He visited Michigan last weekend.
Edwards said he last spoke with Francis "a couple of weeks ago." He hoped to hear from the Hawkeyes again soon.
"I think (Iowa) would be a great fit for me," Edwards said.
Edwards averaged 18.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2.5 blocks as a senior. He ran with the Michigan Warriors in AAU.
