  • While at the State camp, Edwards received several pointers from MSU defensive line coach David Turner.

    "While at the camp, the coach kind of fixed my stance a little bit," said Edwards. "He walked with me through some drills."

    He enjoyed his time working with Coach Turner.

    "(Coach Turner and I) talked a little bit, joked a little bit," said Edwards. "He is a real cool guys. I like him. Hopefully, if, hopefully, when I do come here he can be that father bond."

    Mississippi State is one of several schools recruiting the talented youngster.

    "Auburn, Kentucky, Texas, Mississippi State and Florida State are recruiting me," said Edwards. "I have offers from Mississippi State of course, Southern Miss, Georgia Southern, Northern Illinois, Western Kentucky, Alabama State, South Alabama."

    His MSU offer caught him off-guard. While he hasn't quite pulled the commitment trigger, it's obvious Mississippi state is very, very high on his list.

    "I love Mississippi State," said Edwards. "I'm just ready to make my decision."
