Edwards Says It's Even and He'll Trip

The #1 quarterback prospect in the country according to theInsiders.com, Trent Edwards, said he intends to take his three trips before making his decision...

Trent Edwards, 6-3, 180, Los Gatos (Calif.) High, said that there isn't a clear leader for his services at this point.

"Stanford and UCLA are even," Edwards said. "And Michigan is right behind them."

Edwards will officially visit UCLA on December 14th, a week after he visits Stanford. He also has planned an official visit to Michigan for January 11th. Edwards said he's also considering Florida and Tennessee but when it comes to visiting those two schools, says, "as of this point, I'm not planning on it."

Edwards, who has thrown for around 2,500 yards in 12 games (his Los Gatos team will play in the regional division final this weekend), has yet to be accepted by Stanford's admission. He had previously scored an 1140 on his SAT and Stanford had told him they wanted him to improve his test score. Edwards then took the test this fall again and scored an 1150. When asked what that meant in regards to being accepted by Stanford, Edwards said, "Well, they wanted me to improve. They said if I improved they said I'd pretty much be in. I improved. It went up a little bit. So, I'll finish up the application by the end of the week. I'll probably know by the end of next week whether they've accepted me or not."

Most observers believe that Stanford would have accepted him regardless, but was merely trying to get him to improve his test score. "I don't know what it was," Edwards said.

If he were to be accepted by Stanford in time for his official trip there on the weekend of December 8th and 9th, it seems that a Stanford offer on his visit could be too much to pass up since it's been known that Edwards has, in the past favored Stanford. But Edwards insists he won't commit. "I really want to wait," Edwards said. "At this point, I'm not planning on committing at all. I want to take all my trips. I want to make it until my trip to Michigan and give Michigan a chance."
