Five-star guard Anthony Edwards commits to Georgia

Five-star guard Anthony Edwards commits to Georgia

Edwards would certainly be a huge get for the Bulldogs, as they have not had a five-star enrollee in several years.

According to the 247Sports Team Composite Rankings, Georgia's 2019 recruiting class ranks No. 12 in the nation with Anthony Edwards now in the mix.

The 17-year-old, a top-five senior pick for ESPN and the number one prospect in the Top247 2019 recruiting class, made his decision public on Monday via an interview with CBS Sports.

"Two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, were coached by Tom Crean and he's a great coach", Edwards was quoted as saying by 247Sports.

OnePlus 5G Smartphone prototype to be showcased during MWC 2019

Toronto Raptors to sign veteran point guard Jeremy Lin
The five three-pointers are the most Harris has ever made in a single quarter, and matched his season-high for an entire game. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier in the day that he is expected to join the Raptors once he clears waivers.

A rare black African leopard
According to Nat Geo , the last recorded sighting of a wild black panther in Africa was in Ethiopia in 1909. There are nine leopard subspecies located from Africa all the way to eastern Russian Federation .

Nowadays, we have become accustomed to major names coming out of highly publicized schools making their claims to attend the Goliathic powerhouses like Duke or Kentucky, but Edwards chose to shift the paradigm a little bit and make his decision exclusively off of two factors: an easy commute for the Atlanta native and new Georgia coach Tom Crean's extensive relationship with two other National Basketball Association stars. He narrowed down his final commitment decision to Georgia, Florida State, and Kentucky amid an offer sheet that included 16 schools.

The shooting guard visited both Georgia and Kentucky but never accepted an invitation to visit Kansas and North Carolina.

Edwards, excited about the program's future, has high expectations. He was scheduled to visit Florida State over the weekend but canceled the visit and committed to Georgia instead. In a recent ESPN mock draft for 2020, Edwards is selected No. 2 behind Jaden McDaniels. Edwards says having family so close was "a big factor". He joins consensus four-star prospects Jaykwon Walton, who is a former Miss State commit, and Toumani Camara.
