In the class of 2010, there is a rumor going around that another such player could be on his way to KU next season. Now standing at 6'½" and 280 lbs., KU's first 2010 commit Jeremiah Edwards is a force to be reckoned with. He will be in town to watch the Jayhawks battle Iowa State for homecoming weekend, and he is excited to be making the trip.
"We are driving up right after our game on Friday night. It
should be a lot of fun going to Lawrence."
When asked what his greatest attributes are right now as a player, the
Garland product mentioned a couple of things.
"I have quickness off the ball, so I can be disruptive. I
also have good leg power, which is important. I set the squat
record at my high school."
He did not just set the record; he essentially put it out of reach for
the next player who wants to have his name on the wall.
"I got up to 605 pounds."
As impressive as that is, what is even more impressive is the fact that
Edwards has been playing well all season, despite having to endure
aches and pains.
"I am doing pretty good, but I am playing at about 83-84%. I
am slowly working my way back to 100%."
What is already 100% happens to be the level of commitment Edwards has
to Kansas at this point.
"I get calls every day from Texas Tech. Tulsa and SMU call
pretty often too, but mainly Texas Tech. I just have to tell
people I'm committed, and that's that."
What about Kansas has Edwards excited for next season?
"To be honest… I like the cold weather. I like the defense
and how they switch it up to play against whatever offense they
face. KU is coming on up."
KU is not the only thing coming on up. Jeremiah Edwards is
coming up from Texas next year, and he'll be ready to fight it out in
