Top Louisiana Tight End Plans Michigan Visit

GoBlueWolverine spoke last night to Louisiana tight end Tyler Edwards. He's been all but conceded by recruiting fans to the LSU Tigers, but he insists that one certain Northern school is in a top-three-type position for him.

Tight end Tyler Edwards (6-4, 240, 4.7) from Ouachita Parish High School in Monroe, Louisiana finished his junior season with 23 receptions for 360 yards and four touchdowns. For his efforts he was named 1st Team Class 4A All-State.

GoBlueWolverine talked to Edwards Monday night.

How many offers do you have now?

"I think I'm up to 25 offers, but it gets hard to keep track after awhile."

What would you say are your top offers?

"Probably LSU, Alabama, Auburn, Michigan, Florida, and Miami."

Note: he also has Florida State and Oklahoma offers in his large offer-cache.

Are you going to take any summer visits or go to any summer camps?

"I'm trying to figure out a plan so I can make all my visits in a period of a week or so. But I am definitely going to take one to Michigan, probably in mid-June."

Do you have a top 3-4-5?

"If I had to narrow it down it would probably be LSU, Alabama, and Michigan ... but those aren't set, I'm still trying to decide."

When was the last time a Michigan coach was in to see you?

"About two weeks ago. It was Coach Jackson (who recruits Louisiana for Michigan). He is a pretty cool guy and seems like a great coach."

What does your time table look like?

"Probably after the season, I want to take all my official visits too."

Edwards reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 22 ACT.
