College basketball recruiting: Anthony Edwards, the nation's No. 2 player, commits to Georgia over Kentucky, Florida State
Edwards announced on CBS Sports HQ Monday morning that he'll play for the Bulldogs
Edwards cited Georgia coach Tom Crean's relationship with two NBA stars as a factor of why he picked UGA.
"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. "He's a great coach with player development. When I went to a game, I felt the fans and the gym, everybody showing love, it felt like I was home."
Crean, in his first season coaching the Bulldogs, coached Wade at Marquette and Oladipo at Indiana.
Edwards' commitment led to Georgia's recruiting class jumping from No. 39 to No. 12. In addition to Edwards, the Bulldogs have two four-star commitments in Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara.
Georgia is 10-13 on the season and has struggled in Crean's inaugural season. But with Edwards joining the highest-rated UGA recruiting class since 2008, the Bulldogs could be poised for a quick turnaround and Edwards said he plans to bring a national championship to his home state.
