  4. Nation's No. 1 prospect Edwards to announce on CBS Sports HQ ByEVAN DANIELS 23 hours ago Anthony Edwards, the No. 1 2019 prospect in the Top247, will make his college announcement on Monday, Feb. 11, with 247Sports live on CBS Sports HQ. The announcement will come from Atlanta (Ga.) Holy Spirit Academy’s gymnasium at 9:00 a.m. ET. The finalists for Edwards, a 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard, are Florida State, Georgia and Kentucky. After reclassifying from the 2020 to the 2019 class in November, Edwards became the hottest topic in high school hoops. He now ranks No. 2 in the 247Sports Composite Rankings and No. 1 in the 247Sports Top247. During his senior season, Edwards is averaging 26.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals a game. He’s also shooting 38-percent from three. IN THE MIX ... FLORIDA STATE When Edwards opted to reclassify to the 2019 recruiting class, most assumed that he was dead set on attending Florida State. The Seminoles had long been the assumed favorite. Edwards has former teammates playing there (MJ Walker) and a long-standing relationship with assistant coach Charlton Young. Edwards took an unofficial visit to their campus early in his high school career and was slated to take an official visit over the weekend, but he canceled the official visit. GEORGIA Georgia was the first school to land an official visit from Edwards. In fact, it came quickly after his reclassification decision. That decision came on Nov. 20, and the Bulldogs hosted him for an official visit on Dec. 1. They’ve also had him on campus at least one other time for an unofficial visit. There’s an obvious draw here to stay close to home, as Athens is about an hour and a half from his house. Tom Crean has coached and help developed Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo and that’s been part of his pitch to Edwards. KENTUCKY Kentucky has been the dark horse in the Edwards recruitment. The truth is, not much has been said about them throughout the process, but they are one of two schools to get an official visit. Edwards took an official visit to Kentucky the weekend of Jan. 21. Kentucky’s track record with five-stars is staggering and I’m sure that’s been their pitch throughout. While they aren’t consider the frontrunner coming down the stretch, you can’t ever count them completely out. THE PREDICTION This has been an interesting recruitment to follow. Edwards had originally planned to visit Kansas, North Carolina and Florida State, but he ended up canceling official visits to all three schools. For the past month or so I thought Georgia was making a strong push in this recruitment and I considered them the favorite. He took an unofficial visit to their campus recently, has a strong bond with multiple players on campus and the coaching staff at Georgia. Staying close to home and near his family and former coaches is also a factor, in my opinion. I made a Crystal Ball pick for Georgia on Tuesday and I’m sticking with that prediction leading into the announcement. 159COMMENTS THE EVALUATION Anthony Edwards has all the tools you look for in a two-guard prospect. He has the size (6-5), length, a strong, chiseled frame, plus tremendous athletic ability. To go with the obvious physical tools, Edwards is a dynamic, three-level scorer. He finishes well at the rim and through contact, he does a good job of creating space for shot opportunities off the dribble and continues to improve as a long-range shooter, which is evident by his 38 percent clip from three during his senior season. While we list him as a shooting guard, Edwards is at best when he has the ball in his hands. He has a similar playing style as James Harden and is very effective using ball screens, and creating off the bounce for himself and others. Edwards is tracking as a one-and-done prospect and will be in the conversation to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Almost that time.... Come on and be a DAWG Edwards...
  5. Supposedly already being said to be a top 5 pick in next years draft at this point

  8. I guess they mean they finished closer in recruiting than the last couple of years but yeah it’s like our classes before Kirby compared to what Bama was recruiting not exactly closing the gap

  14. Don’t remind me. I believe the Phins have had like 17 different starting QBs since Marino. Haven’t been jack since. Really pains me that my favorite two teams UGA and Phins have been hurt by one person potentially What happens if Saban gets Drew Brees at Miami? No move to Bama? Phins take off and challenge Pats? but then again Kirby would probably be in the NFL maybe? Phins had two times to get Brees and blew it both times.
  15. Has this been posted? if so sorry but it’s pretty dang funny
  16. Pretty cool. If you do a regression on this using the # of 4/5* as a predictor of winning percentage Then basically 50% (the Rsquared value on the graph) of the variation in winning is based on the # of 4/5* on your team alone. OM, Tenn and Ark greatly underachieved
