The high school football season continued this weekend with many interesting matchups for Illini…
Edwards Clears The Air
"Iowa State offered me a scholarship but Iowa didn't. They (Iowa) told me if I came on a visit that there would be a possibility that I could get an offer. I decided not to visit those schools and I'm 100% Illinois now."
What changed for Edwards? Why did he decide not to visit the Hawkeyes and the Cyclones?
"I went on my official visit (12-9) in December and that was it for me." Edwards said. "I got the chance to sit down with my recruiting coach (Curt Mallory) and I spent a lot of one-on-one time with Ron Zook.
"Coach Mallory and Coach Zook talked to me about the opportunity at Illinois. I do have a chance to come in and play early. I'm hoping to come in and push for some playing time. I know it's hard for a freshman to do that but I'm going to come in and give it my best.
"We're (Illinois) going to have a great recruiting class and I wanted to be a part of that. I'm also coming into a great situation at Illinois."
Edwards was named all-state as a senior. He rushed for 1,400 yards and 22 touchdowns from his quarterback position. Garrett also passed for 850 yards and 10 scores. Edwards had three interceptions from his safety position.
