Mark Fox picked up his fourth recruit for the 2015 class when 3-star center Michael Edwards committed to the Bulldogs.

Edwards announced his decision Monday evening via his Twitter account.

Edwards (6-10, 225), who plays at John Glenn High School in Westland, Michigan, committed to the Bulldogs over offers from Auburn, Kansas State, Marquette, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, SMU, Akron, and Illinois State. He was also drawing interest from Arkansas, Michigan, and Notre Dame.

“It was just the best fit for me,” Edwards told “I spent like seven hours deciding with my coach and my family today. It was crazy. I just did a pros and cons list and it came out for Georgia.”

According to, Edwards averaged 18.8 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals, and 2.5 blocks last season.

In the 247Sports Composite, Michael Edwards is rated No. 338 overall, the No. 33 center, and the No. 6 recruit in Michigan.

Georgia signed three recruits during the early signing period last November: 4-star point guard Will Jackson, 3-star small forward E’Torrion Wilridge, and 3-star center Derek Ogbeide.

The Bulldogs are reportedly still recruiting a graduate transfer for next season even though they are at their scholarship limit. Stay tuned as that could mean a current player is moving on.

    I know that the process has been slow, and we all wish it could have been much faster; however, Coach Fox is doing a tremendous job in building the UGA BB program. I just hope and pray that we can keep him a few more years, because I believe he is going to build a powerhouse BB program here at UGA. Thank you Coach Fox for all you do. We support you 1000%! GO DAWGS!
