Greensboro (N.C.) Dudley four-star running back and Florida State commitment Jamaal Edwards ended up rushing for more than 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns in his senior season. So it’s no surprise that even though he’s committed to the Noles, teams are still after him.
“Carolina and Florida State have been by the house to meet with me and my family,” Edwards, ranked as the nation’s No. 6 running back, said. “And I met with Tennessee at school today. Most of the schools still talking to me are pretty cool. They’re not pressuring me or anything like that.
“They know that I’m committed to Florida State, but they’re just asking me to come take a visit to their school.”
So will he?
“The only trip I know for sure that I’m going to is Florida State,” Edwards said.
“I’m going to go down there in January with DeMario Pressley. I’m not sure about any other trips. I might take a few more with DeMario. Florida State is telling that if I want to take other trips to let them know, because they don’t want to pressure me to not be happy with my decision.”
Edwards said the Nole coaches talked to him about making sure that he sticks to the books and telling him to be ready.
“I’ve been working and getting ready for the Shrine Bowl,” Edwards said. “The Florida State coaches are telling me that they’re going to need me next year and to be ready. I hope to show everybody a little bit of what I got in the Shrine Bowl.”
