Scouting Report: Vince Edwards

Vince Edwards remains toward the top of Purdue's recruiting board. The four-star forward will make his decision in the fall and the Boilermakers are one of two favorites. Boiler Sports Report watched Edwards in action this weekend and offers a scouting report, the latest with his recruitment, and video highlights.

What you missed: A loaded field took to Fort Wayne's Spiece Fieldhouse, with top talent from across the Midwest bringing exciting basketball action to those on hand. Seemingly lost in the shuffle—with teams like the Spiece Indy Heat and Illinois Wolves considered heavy favorites— it was the All Ohio All-Stars stealing the show in the 17U bracket. Four-star forward Vince Edwards had one of the most impressive weekends in Fort Wayne, dominating in each game he played. Edwards was a scoring threat from all over the court.

Scouting Report: It was the perfect weekend to watch Vince Edwards. The four-star forward was facing elite competition—shades of what he'll see at the next level—and he dominated. Edwards is a versatile scorer who's smooth and creative while driving. He has a beautiful jumper and can connect from beyond the arc. On the other end of the court, Edwards is a strong defender and never stops hustling. He has all the intangibles off the court, too. He's definitely deserving of all the high praise.

Where he stands: Edwards has stood firm with two favorite schools, Purdue and Michigan. He continues to evaluate both options while both Matt Painter and John Beilein have led strong recruitments. A decision is expected in the fall.

Quote to note: "Coach Painter and Coach Beilein, they're the same type of coach, the same type of guy. They recruit the same type of kids and are really good friends. That's what makes them equal." –Vince Edwards, on his two lead recruiters.
