Garda Anthony Edwards chooses to stay at home, dedicated to Georgia

Top-five senior Anthony Edwards announced his commitment to Georgia on Monday morning, becoming the highest Bulldogs recruiting in the ESPN recruitment season.

Edwards chose Georgia over Kentucky after canceling an official scheduled visit to Florida State last weekend. He took an official visit to both Georgia and Kentucky, and went to Athens unofficially at least once from the official visit to December. Edwards cut his list to five schools shortly after re-classification from 2020 to 2019 in November, but did not finish visiting Kansas or North Carolina.

The first coach Tom Crean is a statement in his first season with the Bulldogs.

"The reason I have chosen at the University of Georgia is that it is my home school," said Edwards Paul Biancardi for ESPN. "I want to return the state school to the basketball map. Tom Crean is a great name, and I believe that he is training and developing it. On the visit we took a look at a film together and talked It's as much energy. "

Edwards, a 6-foot guard from St Spiorad's St in Atlanta, ranked No. 5 in the ESPN 100 don class 2019, slotting as a shooting guard No. 1 in the country. In the draft draft of 2020 by Jonathan Givony, ESPN, the option No. 2 default behind Jaden McDaniels unexpected senior.

"There's no reason if you're in Georgia state that you have to go anywhere else," said Crean Monday. "Everything here is and not only begins with the beauty of this campus but with the inconsistent quality of education here.

Going to the Atlanta Xpress Lottery program on the Under Armor Society circuit, Edwards average averages 20.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.0 help and shooting 47.4 percent from a 3 point range.

Since ESPN's basketball recruitment database began in 2007, Edwards is the highest ranked player to dedicate to Georgia – and the first five-star prospect of choosing the Bulldogs. Georgia's first-class prospect is to stay home to the college from Calvwell-Pope in 2011.
