Edwards (6-foot-1, 180 pounds) revealed his new list by posting a graphic on X (Twitter) with him standing in front of signs for each program and parts of each area’s geographic footprint.

The class of 2025 prospect, who lasted visited WVU in late March, attends the Trinity Episcopal School in Richmond, Va. Every major recruiting outlet has Edwards rated with three stars and a spot within the top 20 Virginia based players. He’s also considered a top 50 cornerback nationally by most.

Rivals views Edwards with the most favorable ranking, placing him as the No. 11 recruit in the state. WVU’s plan to build a longstanding relationship with Edward may be what eventually wins out. West Virginia was one of the first FBS schools to show interest in Edwards, sending him an offer in May of 2022.

Edwards showed his versatility and playmaking ability during his junior season in 2023, recording 33 tackles, three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, one forced fumble and even scored five times on offense.

Before narrowing down his list, Edwards was being pursued by schools like Boston College, Clemson, Colorado, Florida State, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Penn State, Tennessee, Virginia among many others from all levels around the country.
