    That would be another nice pickup.

    Edwards is a very athletic 6'6" player who is listed as a guard. Extremely underrated IMO.

    "I’d never really been to Butler so it was good to see it get to know more about the program......"

    Usually LJ was very good at identifying talent, so I'll probably give him a pass for not giving Edwards a look. But still seems odd to have this kid in your backyard, and be recruiting his point guard for a bit, and not have him at least come to a game at some point.

    If he's good enough for Matt McMahon he's good enough for me.

    Not sure when Edwards first verballed to Murray State, but he would be considered a late bloomer to some extent. He was named to the Indiana all-star team.

    He doesn’t seem to have any highlight tapes of just him from this year but he’s got a few in this video from the state finals.

    I have mentioned the idea of Butler recruiting him a few times in different threads. Would love to pick this kid up. At the minimum, he'll provide depth at the wing position and give us energy. I think his shot-making ability has increased every year, so hopefully, that trajectory continues.

    BTW Edwards was a 40%+ 3 point this season too.

    40%+ from three point and 6’6. I’m most definitely interested. I’d love to land this guy and maybe another experienced sniper out of the portal so Thad can run his ideal type of offense.

    Edwards has an OG Anunoby body type, be it a smaller version.

    There’s another kid named Marcus Whitlock (https://247sports.com/Player/Marcus-Whitlock-46117583/) on that ATL Xpress team that is an absolute sniper. I saw him play at UAA last year and his shot making ability was legitimately impressive.

    That team is also loaded. They have have Jakai Newton (IU) Stephon Castle (UCONN) and the Brown and Whitlock

    Staff might want to keep an eye on a certain Middlesex Magic U16–would make a great Dawg. Good pedigree too;)

    Woah. You’re right about that point about the portal. I hadn’t thought of that before-it really changes things a lot.

    Thought this was somewhat interesting from the IndyStar:

    So let's run the scenario that Matta locks down Phinisee and Turnbull this weekend. That puts at 11 scholarships, with 2 left. I assume we all want to see us use 1 of those for a transfer big. Would you use the last one on Jaxson Edwards? Also does JMM have 2 years, and Chuck, Tate, & Wilmoth still have 3 years, left with the Covid pass?
