Daniels reported that Edwards — a 6-foot-5 prospect from Atlanta — will start his official visit to UK on Monday. He’ll also be in town for the Cats’ home game against Mississippi State on Tuesday night. Edwards decided several weeks ago to reclassify from 2020 to 2019, and 247Sports now ranks him as the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
Edwards’ finalists are Kentucky, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas and North Carolina. He took an official visit to Georgia in early December, and Daniels also reported Saturday that Edwards has set an official visit to Kansas for February. There is no timetable for his college decision.
Florida State is the heavy favorite on Edwards’ 247Sports Crystal Ball page.
