The West St. John standout LB/DE weighed in Sunday for the Under Armour Showcase Camp at 222 pounds & standing at 6 feet 1/2. Edwards was by far the best in individuals out of all the linebackers at the camp along with showing that he was in tip top shape compared to the other prospects in attendance.
"I just wanted to come out here & show that I could move really good at these linebacker drills," Edwards said. "I had my hand in the dirt the last two seasons so a lot of schools question can I really play linebacker. With not having Spring football, schools couldn't come out & evaluate me in person so coming to a camp like this could show them that I'm versatile."
The 3-star prospect has played defensive end his first two years, but many top tier college programs envision him as a linebacker on the next level. Edwards definitely showed at the camp that he can play the linebacker position at an elite level, preferably middle linebacker in my opinion.
Mississippi St, Michigan St, Houston, Memphis, & Colorado are some big schools that have offered him thus far. He's ranked number 17 overall in the state according to 247Sports, but I think he'll finish in the top 5 before it's all said & done.
