According to the Orlando Sentinel, 6-4 Kedar Edwards, a native of Brooklyn who attends West Oak Academy in Orlando, committed to USC on Saturday night for the 2012 class. The paper reported that Edwards committed to the Gamecocks while competing in the AAU 11th grade Super Showcase at Disney World.
However, Edwards' AAU coach, Dana Dingle, denied that report. "We haven't even lined up official visits and won't do that until after the AAU season."
The Gamecocks reportedly offered Edwards earlier this month after seeing him in a tournament in Pennsylvania. He also has an offer from Manhattan and is drawing interest from Rutgers and Tulsa.
Edwards was a member of the all state independent team in Florida last season.
