Big Dawg: Johnathon Edwards

Philadelphia High School product Johnathon Edwards took part in Mississippi State's Big Dawg camp this past weekend. Edwards is the son of former Mississippi State player Trenell Edwards. The younger Edwards is working to find his own way into the world of college football.

"I worked out today and it was intense," Edwards said of the camp. "We had some great competition. "

Edwards is getting looks at both corner and safety by college programs, but on Friday he worked with the Mississippi State corner prospects.

"I worked out with Coach (DeShea) Townsend," Edwards said. "He said that I did alright, but that I need to just work on a few things."

With his senior season looming, Edwards hopes to play his way into several college options over the course of the next few months.

"I am hearing from State and a few JuCos right now," Edwards said. "I am just going to wait until after the season before I do anything. I am just going to wait and see what offers I get."
