HUGE NEWS: Georgia lands a commitment from the No. 1 high school basketball prospect in the nation Anthony Edwards (Holy Spirit, Atlanta). Many project him to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Anthony Edwards announces, as expected, that he has committed to Tom Crean and Georgia. He's the projected #2 pick in the ESPN 2020 mock draft. Here are highlights from his from the Under Armour Association.
THIS IS NOT A DRILL. GEORGIA HAS LANDED THE NUMBER ONE PLAYER IN THE COUNTRY...IN BASKETBALL.
GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE. THE TOUGH TIMES ARE FADING. FUTURE IS SO BRIGHT. WELL DONE TOM CREAN AND STAFF.
WELCOME TO ATHENS ANTHONY EDWARDS👏
Monday morning there will be big smiles @universityofga as they officially get word that SUPERSTAR TOP 3 HS PTPer ANTHONY EDWARDS announces that he will go to UGA . This is big news for @TomCrean Keeping stars home is vital https://t.co/GNI2h7AeAN
Georgia’s potential lineup next year:
G: Anthony Edwards (projected No 1 pick in NBA Draft)
G: Tyree Crump
F: Jaykwon Walton (incoming 4 star)
F: Rayshaun Hammonds (projected No 26 pick in NBA Draft)
C: Nic Claxton (Potential NBA lottery pick)
Excited is an understatement.
Anthony Edwards tells Espn why he picked Georgia.
“ It’s my home school. I want to put the state school back on the basketball map. Tom Crean is a great dude, and I believe in him coaching me and developing me.”
What a bizarre recruitment for Anthony Edwards. Commits to UGA who are 1-9 in a meh conference and 1-12 vs top 50 teams. Can't remember last time the best player in a class went to such a terrible program.
As expected, the No. 1 player in 2019, Anthony Edwards, announces he's staying home to play at Georgia. Huge recruiting win for Tom Crean, who has made it clear what he thinks of the talent (or lack thereof) on his current roster.
“It’s my home,” five-star guard Anthony Edwards said of Georgia after his decision to commit to the Bulldogs men's basketball program on Monday.

It’s been a heck of a journey for Anthony Edwards from a pudgy freshman that Therrell (who I admit didn’t think was anything more than a low major at the time) to his rise as the nation’s top player, McDonald’s All American and generational recruit for #UGA

At the start of today, Georgia men's basketball hadn't landed a recruit like Anthony Edwards since the days of Dominique Wilkins.
Then, Edwards unzipped the jacket of his 4-month-old nephew Jace to reveal a Georgia shirt underneath.
