Arguably the best prospect available in the 2020 NBA Draft has made his decision. Anthony Edwards, a five-star forward from Georgia, has declared for the draft.

This past season, Edwards averaged 19.1 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. Unfortunately he didn't have the chance to lead the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament, but he's done enough for his draft stock.

Edwards told Evan Daniels of 247Sports that he'll be declaring for the draft. It shouldn't serve as a surprise to anyone, especially since he's always been viewed as a one-and-done prospect from the moment he showed up to Athens.

Now, the former five-star recruit will have the chance to make his childhood dream come true. Almost every mock draft - as of right now - has Edwards being the first overall pick.

Edwards seems fairly confident about where he'll be selected in the upcoming draft, telling 247Sports "I think I should go number one, no doubt."

He's the current favorite to be the No. 1 pick in this year's draft. The league is driven by athletic wings that could score from the outside but also attack the basket.

Another reason that Edwards is such an intriguing prospect is that he's only 18 years old. Although he was originally a class of 2020 recruit, he reclassified up to 2019.

Do you think Edwards will be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft?
