Edwards one to watch

It's a banner year in the state of Washington for both offensive and defensive lineman and one to keep an eye on this summer and fall is Kentridge's LeRoi Edwards. The young man who helps to pave the way for the Chargers' potent attack took in Washington's Junior Day earlier this month and he's set some plans for camps this summer

"We had fun up there," Edwards told Dawgman.com this week. "I've been up to U-Dub so many times that it really wasn't anything new to me, but I had a good time."

For those that might have seen Edwards at the UW/UCLA basketball game, you would have seen him wearing a bright yellow bandana on his head. That was because he was getting ready to attend Kentridge's state championship playoff game to root for his friends.

"We had a blast down there," Edwards said. "It was tough to lose that game, but all of us football players went down together and helped lead the cheers for our team and I think we represented ourselves pretty well.

"Hopefully we'll get back there next year and see what happens."

Back to Edwards' visit to Montlake, he said he met with Washington's offensive line coach Mike Denbrock for a bit during the position meetings that took place.

"It was pretty cool because we watched some film and saw what reads he expects his players to have and how they are suppose to use their first step to set up things," Edwards recalled. "I got to hang out with Alameda (Ta'amu) and (David) Decastro a little bit and they were pretty cool.

"Afterwards, I asked coach Denbrock where he saw me playing for him and he said that I could be successful on either side of the ball. He didn't really say what position he wants me at if I played offense, but I would imagine it's probably center or guard because I'm 6-4."

The Kentridge football team attends Washington State's team camp every year, so that is one camp he plans to attend, but he said Washington and Stanford are two more that will get him to trip down for a day or two of camp as well.

"Stanford has been recruiting me and sending me stuff for a while," Edwards said. "I'll go down and check that out and show them what I can do on the field as well."

With no offers yet, Edwards plans to keep himself open to anyone who extends an offer and said he'll wait to take his visits before he makes any decisions.

We'll have more from Edwards as the spring evaluation period gets underway.
