Palm Beach Lakes wide receiver D.J. Edwards high on the Louisville football program; talks recruiting and the Cardinals

Palm Beach, Fla., Lakes High School wide receiver D.J. Edwards talks about recruiting and his interest in the University of Louisville. Edwards is one of the Cardinals' top prospects in the state of Florida.

The state of Florida has been good to the University of Louisville football program in recent years.

And the Cardinals are trying to land a few more prospects from the Sunshine State.

Louisville has several coaches recruiting the state of Florida, including new secondary coach Cort Dennison and the Cardinals appear to be deep in the mix with several top prospects, including Palm Beach Lakes High School wide receiver D.J. Edwards

"I talk to coach Dennison almost every day," Edwards said. "I really like him and Louisville. He's been telling me with my skill set that me and Lamar (Jackson) could put up big numbers and do big things in the ACC."

The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Edwards notes he attends school about 20 minutes from where Jackson played in Boynton Beach. analyst Corey Bender recently said Edwards was becoming a "hot commodity."

"This South Florida native is a crisp route runner that provides nice shiftiness and wiggle when operating after the catch," Bender said in an analysis piece. "Edwards flashes a nice burst and reaches top speed in a hurry, but shows great ability when stretching the field as well."

As a junior, Edwards had 13 touchdown catches and around 550 yards receiving in 10 games for a team that went 3-7. He has a 3.5 grade-point average and has over 20 offers, including U of L, Kentucky, Indiana, Connecticut, Iowa State, West Virginia, Illinois, Penn State and others.

His uncle, Darren Studstill, played college ball for West Virginia in the early 1990s and went on to the NFL in the mid-1990s.
