Edwards sets first three visits

Chelsea, Mich., three-star Berkley Edwards is one of the top running back prospects still on the board in the Midwest. Several teams are still in the running for his services, and the 5-foot-9, 189-pound back has set official visits to three schools.
Edwards will take an official visit of the process the weekend of Sept. 21 to the University of Minnesota. The Gophers were the first BCS school to offer Edwards and will receive his first official visit.
Edwards' father, Stan, said his son decided on two other official visits this weekend. He will take his second official visit of the process to Cal the weekend of Oct. 6 when the Golden Bears play host to UCLA. A third official visit will be taken to Iowa the weekend of Oct. 20 when the Hawkeyes host Penn State.
Although just those three official visits have been set at this time, Stan Edwards said he expects his son will take additional official visits after the season. Alabama is a team that has maintained contact into the fall, and the Crimson Tide plan to watch Edwards' progress this season.
All three of the schools Edwards has official visits planned to have already offered. Other schools that have offered Edwards include Ball State, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Northern Illinois and Western Michigan.
Edwards is ranked as the No. 9 all-purpose back in the country and the No. 12 player in the state of Michigan for the 2013 class.
