With five other teammates already committed to Division I schools, Brenham, Texas cornerback A.J. Edwards seemed to be missing out on the party.
The 6-foot-1, 178-pound cornerback had all the talents of his teammates but was injured in a scrimmage before his junior season. That didn't keep college coaches from taking a look at him and making an early offer. Of course, that led to an early commitment.
"I committed to the University of Houston," Edwards said. "They were my only offer that had come. But, after I broke my leg last year, no one was really looking at me.
"Before I even got into pads, they saw something in me. That's how all the success stories start when someone can just see that right away."
Edwards says he's as solid as he can be at this point.
"I'm going to say I'm solid because I'm happy with my decision," Edwards said. "You never know what could happen in the future though."
As for his injury, Edwards is excited about getting back on the field.
"The leg feels great, I went through track and everything with it," he said. "I'm totally confident now."
Purdue, Baylor, and Texas A&M have been showing interest in Edwards as of late. He was recruited by coach Philip Montgomery.
