Edwards chose Georgia over Kentucky after canceling a scheduled official visit to Florida State this past weekend.

"Two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, were coached by Tom Crean", Edwards told 247Sports' Evan Daniels after announcing his choice.

A five-star guard out of Holy Spirit Preparatory School, Edwards ranks No. 2 in the nation and No. 1 at the shooting guard position. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy".

Edwards, who is an excellent scorer, could immediately become Georgia's No. 1 offensive option in 2019-20 despite the fact that the Bulldogs are expected to return four of their top five players from this year's squad. Rayshaun Hammonds, Nicolas Claxton, Tyree Crump, and TeShaun Hightower are the four players.

He noted Georgia coach Tom Crean's relationship with two National Basketball Association stars as a factor in his decision.

Crean, in his first season coaching the Bulldogs, coached Wade at Marquette and Oladipo at Indiana.

After landing the commitment from the ultra talented Anthony Edwards on February 11, head coach Tom Crean and the Dawgs 2019 recruiting class obviously skyrocketed up the national class rankings.

Edwards is considered the No. 2 overall recruit per the 247Sports Composite ranking. Edwards says having family so close was "a big factor".

"I went to a game and I felt the fans in the gym, everybody showing love, and I felt like I was home", Edwards continued. That, and the fact that Edwards is averaging almost 30 points and nine rebounds per game at Holy Ghost.
