Three-star running back Berkley Edwards is already starting to plan out official visits in the fall, but the well-traveled prospect from Chelsea, Mich., still has one more summer unofficial visit on the docket.
"I'm going to Notre Dame on the 18th of August," Edwards reported. "When I went down there for the camp, the running backs coach didn't have a chance to look at me until earlier that day. After the camp, though, he talked to me and said to hold on and they will talk to me more about offering and anything else during the season."
Edwards also took part in camps at Alabama, LSU, Michigan and Michigan State. His stop in Baton Rouge was the last of the summer and LSU coaches said they would be watching him this fall.

"He said they really like me, to stay in touch and hold on maybe mid or after the season," Edwards said.
Edwards does expect to take his recruiting process into his senior year, and he is already looking at what official visits he will take.
"I know I am going to Cal, Iowa and Minnesota," Edwards said. "Me and my dad were talking about trying to do a couple in September, get to an early game. I am going to try to get down to LSU and Alabama as well."
Offers have already come through from Cal, Iowa and Minnesota, as well as MAC programs Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.
"Everybody stands out to me the same, but I do like Iowa," Edwards said. "They stand out because I had a relationship with Coach [Erik] Campbell before I started football."
Campbell, Iowa's wide receivers coach, was the position coach for Edwards' older brother, Braylon, at Michigan. The Hawkeyes originally offered they younger Edwards as a slot receiver, but have also discussed the potential of playing running back.
"We're just staying in touch a little bit," Edwards said. "They really haven't talked too much between running back and receiver. As far as I know I can still play both with them."
The 5-foot-9, 189-pound Edwards has stated summer camp with his Chelsea High team this week. The two weeks prior he was down in Texas for the track Junior Olympics where he took third in the 100 meters with a time of 10.79 and also helped his 4x100 relay team to a third place finish.
"I actually did better than I expected because I've had a crazy summer with football, 7-on-7's, camps and track," Edwards said.
