Georgia ATH Kaleb Edwards sets commitment date

On June 1, Dacula (Ga.) athlete Kaleb Edwards made his first big move as he pushed towards a commitment. He named his top 10: Duke, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa, Louisville, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Virginia.

The 6-foot, 190 pounder has offers as an athlete, some want him to play safety, others like him at running back — he just wants to get on the field.

What campus will he call home in the future? He is working to take that next step and he has set a date to do just that.

"I will be committing to a school in my top 10 July 1," said Edwards. "I was expecting to go into July, cut my list down to around three to five schools, then commit later this summer, but I have found the school I want to go to.

"I will be with my family in Memphis July 1 for a cookout and I will tell everyone the school I am going to."

This happened sooner than Edwards had planned. He has had time to think about this for some time and he knows he is ready.

"Without being able to take visits, things really moved up for me. I was planning to use the rest of June to keep building relationships, do more of my own research about the schools and ask more personal questions to the coaches, but I know I really don't need to do that anymore. It definitely got serious for me the last few weeks and I have made my decision.

"It simply just hit me. Everything lined up with one school and I know I have found the one."

Out of the 10 schools on his list, he has only visited Indiana, Louisville and Vanderbilt. He has had virtual visits with every school though, he has had constant communication with coaches on each staff and he feels good now that his mind is made up.

"I have gotten to know a lot of coaches, I have found out about the different schools and everything feels right, right now," said Edwards. "The people, education and stability of the head coach were the keys helping me get here. I am at peace now and I will be announcing it soon."

Edwards will not cut his list down again and he said each school on his list has made him feel like a priority while respecting him and giving him space.
