When news began to leak that Holy Spirit Prep (Atlanta) shooting guard Anthony Edwards cancelled his official visit to Florida State this past weekend, it raised eyebrows as his decision loomed a day after he was due to return.

On Monday the world found out why when Edwards committed to Georgia over the Seminoles and Kentucky.

Edwards, who is ranked No. 2 overall in USA Today Sports' Chosen 25 in 2019, is the Bulldogs' highest ranked recruit ever and is widely regarded as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Why?

At 6-foot-5, Edwards scores efficiently at all three levels, is virtually impossible to keep out of the lane, knocks down threes from NBA range and is an elite athlete who finishes with ferocious dunks through contact.

This season, Edwards is averaging 26.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals a game.

Edwards is the Bulldogs' third commit from the 2019 class, joining Chaminade-Madonna Prep (Hollywood, Fla.) wing Toumani Camara and Carver High School (Montgomery, Ala.) wing Jaykwon Walton.
