Fiz's 5 Players to watch in 2010

Somehow, Edwards fell through the recruiting cracks after a stellar season in 2005 at Greenwood High School. He moved to quarterback during his junior year of high school and threw for more than 2,000 yards and ran for more than 1,100 as a senior. But because of his small stature (6 feet, 175 pounds), he largely was ignored by most larger schools.

By the end of his senior season at Greenwood High, Edwards had scholarship offers from Appalachian State and Division I-A New Mexico State. The Aggies courted Edwards as a receiver but lost interest when new coach Hal Mumme discovered he didn't have enough scholarships to sign a full class.

"If he was one of the players we dropped, we certainly screwed up," Mumme said. "We liked him. I think he probably just wanted to play quarterback. Their offense fit his playing ability a little bit better than our offense. And he probably wanted to stay closer to home."

Edwards said he received late scholarship offers from Clemson, Memphis and Vanderbilt, but opted to keep his promise to the Mountaineers.

It's amazing the stuff you can find with a simple web search...

I've followed this guy for years now and haven't seen anywhere from any news source that he was recruited as a WR out of high school....so you be correct and post your news source ;) Klempsun = yes, but as a DB not WR. I'll try to find the quotes from Bowden where he spoke about his error in not recruiting him as a QB. I'll give you the Georgia interest, because it's only interest, I don't think they offered him.

show anything stating that he was being recruited for anything but WR and QB, please.

why would he have been recruited as a DB? he played WR and QB in high school.

Again, this was stated by him and T. Bowden at Clemson (maybe someone who has access to the Clemson Scouts insider page can check the specific article).

And on this page the only offers showing he received was from App and New Mexico State:

I'm trying to find the article for you now, your highness /bow/

BUT does it really matter if he was recruited 5 years ago to play DB (which it was btw :yesnod:)? :confused:

apparently it was big enough of a deal that you felt you had to call someone out for a mistake that you can't seem to be able to corroborate.

btw...link wasn't any good.

The guy to watch is Everette Brown. This is the dude that was supposed to replace Peppers. This is the guy whom which we gave up our 1st rounder this year to move up into the 2nd round last year to get. You better rush the passer!
