Hoops Recruiting

Mention of Harold Edwards, a recruit interested in Tech...

Georgia Tech, LSU, Mississippi State, North Texas and Illinois State have shown interest in Edwards.

"I'll take some visits after this game," he said. "During the season I was so focused on winning a championship I didn't do much visiting."

Edwards, who averaged 22 points and 12 rebounds for a LeFlore team that was unbeaten until losing to Auburn in the Class 6A championship game, wants to have fun today.

The Boo Williams Summer League Tourney, featuring some of the top names in high school hoops, is underway. Standout performances include Kevin Durant, Tywon Lawson, Vernon Macklin, Duke Crews.

While the rankings have overlooked Crews, colleges haven't. Xavier, Connecticut, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Florida State, Cincinnati, Illinois, St. John's, Georgetown, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Clemson, Tennessee, Old Dominion and Maryland reportedly are all interested in the junior.
