"I went to a game and I felt the fans in the gym, everybody showing love, and I felt like I was home", he added.

The Georgia campus in Athens is near his Atlanta home.

Meanwhile, Edwards has already made his official visits to Georgia and Kentucky on December 1, 2018 and January 21, 2019 respectively. "I want to put the state school back on the basketball map".

In his first year of coaching the Bulldogs, Crean has deep ties to Wade, whom he coached while at Marquette from 2001-2003 and instructed Victor Oladipo at IN from 2010-2013. Tom Crean is a great dude, and I believe in him coaching me and developing me.

Five-star recruit Anthony Edwards announced that he will stay in-state and attend the University of Georgia on Monday afternoon.

Georgia is 10-13 on the season and has struggled in Crean's inaugural season.

According to 247Sports, five-star shooting guard Anthony Edwards from Holy Spirit Preparatory School will make his final announcement tomorrow morning.

Though he is joining the 39th ranked recruiting class for next year with two four-star talents in Carver High School's Combo Guard Jaykwon Walton and Chaminade-Madonna Prep's Small Forward Toumani Camara, the nation's best prospect is optimistic about Georgia's chances next year.

A few of the notable programs that weren't included in the finalists for Edwards were the Florida Gators, Kansas Jayhawks, Michigan State Spartans, Memphis Tigers, Texas A&M Aggies, Virginia Cavaliers, and UNC Tar Heels. Per 247 Sports, the five-star guard, along with Jaykwon Walton and Toumani Camara gives Georgia an average of 0.9764 overall in recruiting, up from 0.9121 previous year.
