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 UGASports.com. “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 Scout.com, 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.
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.
