It’s coming down to the wire for Conway wide receiver Bryan Edwards. He’s running out of time to make a second college decision.
Edwards was committed to South Carolina, but decommitted after Steve Spurrier resigned. He has taken an official visit to Clemson and will take one to USC this weekend. Georgia has tried to get back in the recruiting, but his decision is down to the Gamecocks and Tigers.
USC coach Will Muschamp visited Edwards Monday and Thursday, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney met with Edwards to make his final pitch. The Gamecocks have been recruiting Edwards as a receiver while the Tigers are projecting him as a safety.
“Bryan informed (Swinney) that he will take his visit to USC this weekend and then make his decision early next week,” Conway coach Chuck Jordan said. “It was pretty much the same conversation they have had. (Swinney’s) interest is getting him in the position to where he’ll be most beneficial to them. At the end of the day, you’ve got people who know what they are doing and make a lot of good points.”
Jordan didn’t know which day Edwards will make his decision public, only that it will be early next week.
Edwards was chosen for the Shrine Bowl, but because of a knee injury won’t be able to play and won’t travel to Spartanburg during the week. He will focus on his exams because he’s an early graduate.
