"I want to put the state school back on the basketball map".

Shooting guard Anthony Edwards of Atlanta, Georgia has made a decision to stay in his home state. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy". "When I went to a game (at Georgia), I felt the fans and the gym, everybody showing love, it felt like I was home".

Edwards took official visits to both Georgia and Kentucky.

The 6-foot-4 wing is the highest-ranked recruit ever to select the Bulldogs, surpassing Lou Williams and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.

He trails only Memphis center James Wiseman on the recruiting chart, but is still the top-rated shooting guard and the No. 1 overall prospect from the state of Georgia.

France captain Guilhem Guirado, whose side next play Scotland in Paris, said this latest reverse had been particularly damaging. He's been at the top of the tree in European rugby for the last 15 years, through his club and country and the Lions.

As of now, the Bulldogs also have the No. 3 class in the SEC, up from No. 7 in 2018.

Anthony Edwards has committed to Georgia.

This is somewhat of a surprise that the Georgia basketball program was able to land a prospect like the formerly reclassified 5-star Atlanta, GA, shooting guard Anthony Edwards over blue bloods like the North Carolina Tar Heels, Duke Blue Devils, and Kentucky Wildcats.

All reputable recruiting service websites have the young man slotted as a five-star recruit, while most agree he's no lower than being the second best (many have him No. 1 overall) player in the entire 2019 recruiting class.

Originally a member of the 2020 recruiting class, Anthony Edwards recently chose to join the 2019 grouping instead. In addition to Edwards, the Bulldogs have two four-star commitments in Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara. Johnson appears to be their top choice of the six players followed by Brown and Broadnax.
