5-star Holy Spirit guard Anthony Edwards makes commitment decision

Anthony Edwards, a five-star recruit considered a consensus top-five member of the 2019 class, made a decision to stay home and play for the Bulldogs on an announcement on Monday, spurning the likes of Kentucky in the process.

Despite major pushes from Florida State, Kansas and Kentucky (among others), it's been widely reported in recent weeks that Georgia was the team to beat.

All reputable recruiting service websites have the young man slotted as a five-star recruit, while most agree he's no lower than being the second best (many have him No. 1 overall) player in the entire 2019 recruiting class.

Will be updatedAnthony Edwards, a shooting guard from Holy Spirit Prep in Atlanta rated as the nation's No. 2 prospect, says he will sign with Georgia.

Top-five senior Anthony Edwards announced his commitment to Georgia on Monday morning, becoming the Bulldogs' highest-ranked recruit in the ESPN recruiting era. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy". He is also the first top-ranked Georgia prospect to stay home for college since Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in 2011.

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

In his first year of coaching the Bulldogs, Crean has deep ties to Wade, whom he coached while at Marquette from 2001-2003 and instructed Victor Oladipo at IN from 2010-2013.

Edwards says Georgia's Tom Crean coached his two favorite players, Dwyane Wade at Marquette and Victor Oladipo at Indiana.

"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. Edwards says having family so close was "a big factor".

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

Edwards was a McDonald's All-American selection this year.
