Edwards Talks Michigan, Possible Camp Visit

Downers Grove (Ill.) North 2015 tight end David Edwards talks Michigan, camping at U-M, other schools of interest and more.

Downers Grove (Ill.) North 2015 tight end David Edwards was recently paid a visit a by Michigan assistant Curt Mallory.

And Mallory made it clear to Edwards that Michigan wants to see him camp in Ann Arbor soon.

"It went well," Edwards said on his talks with Mallory. "He basically talked to me about coming for a camp, which I think I am. I hadn't seen him since I went up for a basketball game (earlier this season). I hadn't talk with him in person in a while, so it was good."

And while the Wolverines have yet to offer the four-star prospect, Edwards knows what he has to do to earn that elusive offer from the Maize & Blue.

"I think for me is my quickness, ability to get off the line from a jam, route running and obviously hands," Edwards said on his upcoming Michigan camp performance. "I think they have a pretty good idea, they just want to see me in person."

And if Michigan were to offer?

"I really like Michigan," Edwards said. "I've liked them since last year. I think that would be a big offer for me. But I still have some good options in the Big Ten, too. They will definitely be on my list for sure. I would have to make a hard long look at which school would best fit me."

During his next visit to Michigan's campus, Edwards says his major focus will be building his comfort level with the U-M coaching staff.

"Definitely building a relationship with the coaches," Edwards said on the Wolverines. "Obviously, building a relationship with Coach Mallory and Coach Ferrigno, those are biggest thing for me."

Currently, Edwards has notable offers from Illinois, Wisconsin and Indiana among others. But he said Illini are showing him the most interest at the moment.

"No. 1 is Illinois," Edwards said. "They are recruiting me the hardest. Then Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and then Ohio State."

Edwards said along with the Wolverines, he most likely will camp at Ohio State this summer. He also said a visit to Duke is a possibility, as well. He also noted he is planning a late summer commitment.
