No. 2 prospect Edwards stays in state, commits to Georgia

Edwards ultimately made a decision to pick Georgia over Florida State and Kentucky during his commitment process and is planning to bring a National Championship to Athens, turning a new leaf for an improving program that's had a shaky start to Crean's coaching tenure at Georgia. Edwards, whose nickname is "Ant Man", chose Georgia over Kentucky and Florida State.

"Two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, were coached by Tom Crean", Edwards told 247Sports' Evan Daniels after announcing his choice on CBS Sports HQ. According to 247Sports, the Bulldogs now have the 12th best-recruiting class for this upcoming season.

The 6-foot-5 shooting guard named his final five schools back on December 28, with that list being the Kentucky Wildcats.

He trails only Memphis center James Wiseman on the recruiting chart, but is still the top-rated shooting guard and the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Georgia.
