Edwards' commitment led to Georgia's recruiting class jumping from No. 39 to No. 12. Edwards, whose nickname is "Ant Man", chose Georgia over Kentucky and Florida State. "I want to put the state school back on the basketball map".

Edwards, who is ranked No. 2 overall in USA Today Sports' Chosen 25 in 2019, is the Bulldogs' highest ranked recruit ever and is widely regarded as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

"Two of my favorite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, were coached by Tom Crean", Edwards told 247Sports' Evan Daniels after announcing his choice.

What Anthony Edwards will bring to the table for Georgia is an ultra-athletic shooting guard that can score from anywhere on the court and physically outmatch most defending guards. "On my visit we watched film together, and he talks with so much energy". The 52-year-old took charge of Georgia in March last year but has previously coached National Basketball Association stars such as Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo. He is also the first top-ranked Georgia prospect to stay home for college since Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in 2011.

After landing the commitment from the ultra talented Anthony Edwards on February 11, head coach Tom Crean and the Dawgs 2019 recruiting class obviously skyrocketed up the national class rankings.

"They came in, not highly rated, and came out really good. When I went to a game, I felt the fans and the gym, everybody showing love, it felt like I was home".

Originally a 2020 prospect, Edwards reclassified to 2019 in November, which made his recruitment even more electrifying than the 26.7 points and 8.7 rebounds he posts each game this season.
