Edwards had an 'Awesome' BBQ Experience

Downers Grove North (Ill.) '15 ATH David Edwards talks about his visit to Michigan annual Barbecue at the Big House, what they are recruiting him as, his overall thoughts on Wolverines and more.

Downers Grove North (Ill.) 2015 athlete David Edwards made the trip to Michigan's annual Barbecue at the Big House this weekend and the his visit couldn't have worked out any better.

"I loved it!" Edwards said. "It was awesome!"

A strong statement from Edwards, who has already admitted in the past that he grew up a huge fan of Wolverines.

On his visit Edwards had a chance to bond with current Michigan commits Wilton Speight, Ian Bunting and Mason Cole. He said he also had chance to sit down with Secondary coach Curt Mallory.

"I had lunch with my recruiting coordinator coach Mallory," Edwards said. "Obviously, I have a connection with coach Mallory, we're family friends."

During his visit, Edwards found out that Michigan does plan on recruiting him this fall -- they just don't know which position yet.

"They actually don't know what they are recruiting me as," Edwards explained. "They said I could be a quarterback, a tight end, an offensive tackle or a defensive end. So, they don't really know. I honestly don't what they are recruiting me as."

At 6-foot-6, 230-pounds, Edwards said he would be open to play nay position in college and definitely has the frame to be an college offensive tackle.

"Before I was in high school I was a right tackle and a right guard," Edwards said. "I also played defensive end, too. So it wouldn't be problem for me."

Currently, Edwards holds offers from Illinois, Indiana and Vanderbilt. He said the Hoosiers and Commodores are looking at him as tight end and the Illini as an athlete. However, Michigan remains one of Edwards preferred destinations.

"Michigan is one of my top choices," Edwards said. "It's a great school, with great people and great tradition."

And if the Maize & Blue were to extend an offer to Edwards, how far would that offer go in his recruitment?

"If Michigan were to offer me as scholarship, I would take my time with that process and just see if they are the best fit for me," Edwards said. "They are definitely one of my top schools. If they were to offer me a scholarship I would wait it out, but they are definitely up on my board."

While he doesn't have set visit to return to Ann Arbor, Edwards said he would "absolutely" return in the future. In the meantime, he noted that Mallory would be coming out to one of his high school games this fall.

"The last thing coach Mallory told was ‘hey, we have few bye weeks and in those bye weeks I am going to come down and see you play with (Tight Ends coach Dan) Ferrigno.'"
