    is a sophmore at LSU who has decided to transfer- insiders premium

    rivals premium on the transfer



    Ht: 6-0 Wt: 211 40: 4.48
    Position: RB
    Projected as: RB
    Position Rank: 5
    Date of Birth: 2/9/1984
    Birthplace: Bowie, MD
    Class: 2003 Senior
    High School: Bowie HS
    (Bowie, MD)
    College: LSU

    He was a Insiders & Rivals 4 star out of HS

    He is looking at 6 schools (tOSU, Pitt, UNC, NCST, Miami and Michigan St.) tOSU, Pitt and one of the NC schools have the early edge.

    He was behind Vincent and Broussard on the LSU depth chart

    Edwards stats at LSU

    He will make a decision this week

    If he transfers doesn't he have to sit out a year before he can get a schollie? :osu:

    We need to get this kid if possible. He fills that "dead spot" b/w Mo Hall/Ross being seniors and Pittman/Haw as freshman.

    The KSB 4-4-11/11-5-11

    Other than the humidity why is he transfering?

    LSU had 3 freshman RB's last season, one of whom, justin Vincent, had a big year. instead of batteling it out w/ them for 3 years, he wants a fresh start.

    Yes he does have to redshirt, but after sitting out he would be a sophmore in 05 just like kennedy would have, although kennedy may have been a R-shirt possibility.

    Not a bad recruit to have around, but I can't help but cringe a bit at the idea of OSU taking the kid that lost the battle for PT. This isn't UNLV.

    Tough to argue you are the #1 RB recruit out of HS but not the number one recruit at LSU.

    To be clear on the question above a transfer does not have to wait for a 'scholarship' - only to be eligible to play.

    I thought the same thing. This is tOSU we shouldn't need anyones hand-me-downs especially at running back.

    guys, he only had one year at LSU! and he got pt on a national title team as an 18 year old. he isnt really a "hand me down"

    He's a quality RB that helped lead Bowie to its first state title in 15-20 years during his Junior year. However, I believe he was kicked off the team his senior year for grades and off the field issues.

    In fariness, with the current popularity of tattoos among young women we don't know for sure she didn't have a bull's eye back there.

    Good pickup on the quotes Soldier. I wonder if they came from the LSU equivalent of BP or their equivalent of BN.

    So are you saying you wouldnt want Anthony Schlegal to play for OSU this year????? Especially since he came from that ever so powerful Air Force team, instead of a co national championship team. I dont think you can label a kid a "hand me down" because he couldnt get playing time over Ally Broussard and Justin Vincent and another quality upperclassmen in Shyrone Carey.

    Anthony Schlegel didn't lose the starting LB job at AF to another player in the same class. I would gladly take a transfer of the starting RB from a school like LSU. Edwards lost the battle for that spot to two other Frosh.
