Originally a member of the 2020 recruiting class, Anthony Edwards recently made a decision to join the 2019 grouping instead.
The No. 2 prospect by the 247 Sports composite ranking chose Georgia over Kentucky and Florida State. Sure, this season isn't going too well, but help is officially on the way for head coach Tom Crean.
Some of the biggest news that will drop for any commitment for the 2019 recruiting cycle on February 11 when the nation's top prospect announced his pledge to the Georgia Bulldogs.
All reputable recruiting service websites have the young man slotted as a five-star recruit, while most agree he's no lower than being the second best (many have him No. 1 overall) player in the entire 2019 recruiting class.
He noted Georgia coach Tom Crean's relationship with two National Basketball Association stars as a factor in his decision.
The 17-year-old, who took an official visit to Georgia on December 1, added that the opportunity to be coached by Crean was a decisive factor. He says his decision was influenced by "everybody showing love" on his unofficial visit at a Georgia game. In a recent 2020 mock draft from ESPN's Jonathan Givony, Edwards was the projected No. 2 pick behind uncommitted senior Jaden McDaniels. Edwards announced he was staying home and put the rest of the SEC and college basketball on notice that Georgia will be for real next season.
