This is a huge get for Tom Crean’s program.
“Edwards is the first top-ranked Georgia prospect to stay home for college since Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in 2011. A massive commitment for Tom Crean and the Bulldogs,” ESPN’s Jeff Borzello tweeted.

247Sports had more details on Edwards’ recruitment:
Edwards, who lives an hour and a half from Georgia’s campus, picked the in-state school over significant interest from Kentucky, where he official visited on Jan. 20, Florida State and a host of others.
Edwards took an official visit to Georgia on Dec. 1, less than two weeks after he opted to reclassify from the 2020 to the 2019 recruiting class. He then took multiple unofficial visits to the school before his pledge.
The commitment from Edwards gives Georgia and Tom Crean a trio of commitments, all ranking in the national top 100. Edwards joins four-star prospects Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara to make up what is now the No. 12 class in the 247Sports Team Rankings.
The 6-foot-5 guard is ranked the No. 2 overall recruit in the class and the No. 1 player at his position.
