“We shall see.”
And the jury is still out. Edwards seems to be a curiosity that opened many doors, but that did not seem to result in many blue chip signings.
Today, I am comparing his results with first year Oregon HC Miro Cristabol. Cristabol visited the same California powerhouse programs and walked away with 12 4/5 star recruits. Edwards drew a crowd, but did not have the same signing power. Oregon made a quantum leap in recruiting. ASU did not move the needle - yet.
Edwards got more involved in recruiting than I thought that he would and he did get doors to open. But now what? Now that the novelty of an ESPN personality has passed, can he recruit as a head coach? The jury is still out. Can he sign blue chip players and pick gems out of the 3 star pool that other experienced coaches have missed?
We shall see.
