Edwards also helped lead Westlake into the playoffs after a slow start. "We started off 0-2 and then we went 8-0 in the region and won the region," he noted. "We won the first game of the playoffs but lost in the second round."
As for his recruitment, Edwards has narrowed his list down – but has still yet to make a decision. "I've pretty much narrowed things down to Virginia Tech, them being the top school, and then Arkansas, Central Florida, Baylor and Georgia Tech."
Though Edwards has yet to make all of his visits, it was his visit to Virginia Tech that left the Hokies out in front of the pack. "Probably the campus and the environment there," Edwards said when asked why Tech led. "I went to the Miami game and the fans are great, academics are good, and the team is always good. Coach Ward has put a lot of defensive backs in the league too."
Though the Hokies currently lead for the safety prospect out of Atlanta, Central Florida has their chance to impress Edwards this weekend. "I go to just about every Georgia Tech home game," Edwards said, "so I'm not going to visit there. I have an official visit set up this weekend for Central Florida and I'll probably cancel the rest."
He will also visit Virginia Tech again, this time unofficially. "I should be heading back up [to Virginia Tech] sometime near the end of the month, about the 20th."
