Edwards Becomes 2nd Player From Class of 2014 To Commit To UConn

Sadie Edwards, a 5-foot-10 junior guard from Brooklyn, N.Y. has verbally committed to UConn, according to her Twitter account. She becomes the second member of the Class of 2014 to make a pledge to the Huskies, joining Courtney Ekmark, a 6-foot guard from Phoenix.

Along with her mother, Lisa, Edwards made an unofficial visit to UConn Monday. She watched practice at Gampel Pavilion and viewed the NCAA tournament selection show in the Huskies’ locker room.

Edwards also attended the UConn-Seton Hall game at Gampel Pavilion Feb. 23.

Edwards, who once played at Mercy High School, is currently attending Blair Academy in New Jersey.

    It is next to impossible to emerge as a premier player here in Connecticut. Look at the few these past 10 years.

    In Connecticut, the Coach can’t work with her/his team out of season.

    In New York: Take Ossining for exapmle – the coach keeeps his entire team together all year and they play AAU ball as a team. Also, a player can play Varsity for 6 years.

    So – I for one, don’t see anything wrong with her transfers.

    By the way – Ossining has a terrific Eighth Grader who had 14 points in the New York state final game. This is her second year on varsity, starts, and has a full four more years. We can only pray that this kid chooses UCONN.

    Red flag is up with the transfers
    Don’t care the reasons
    Lack of committment
