Ohio four-star defensive tackle Daniel Cage is not one looking for attention during the recruiting…
Edwards Gives Latest
The recruiting journey Cincinnati (Ohio) Winton Woods defensive back Mike Edwards is taking has seen hills, curves and stop signs along the way. Once thought to be ready to pledge to Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats, Edwards slowed things down to make a sure decision. "I just turned 17 and this is one of the biggest decisions of my life," explained Edwards. "This is actually really hard. At first, I thought this was going to be an easy decision. However, it's now become a hard decision with some many quality schools recruiting me. "I've had a lot to think about as I don't want to make the wrong decision." The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Edwards is still considering several programs before making his decision. "Right now Kentucky might be my favorite," said Edwards. "But I'm also considering other programs like Louisville, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt and West Virginia. I would say right now West Virginia is right up there with Kentucky. "I talk with Coach (Erik) Slaughter a lot and have built a good relationship with him. We talk about a lot of things like me coming in and playing early in my career." This week Edwards revisited leader Kentucky for a closer look. "I visited Kentucky with my mom and dad," said Edwards. "They both really liked it and it surprised them." What surprised his parents most about the Wildcats program? "I think the coaches really surprised them along with the trainer," said Edwards. "The trainer showed them how they track the football players to measure their risk for injury." As for summer plans or an announcement, Edwards has some thoughts. "Our last day of schools is tomorrow," said Edwards. "I was planning to do a few camps this summer but my hamstring is still tender. So I'm only looking at visiting a few of the schools I named. "As for making a decision, right now I really don't know. I was thinking I wanted to do it sometime in June. But right now I'm not really sure."
