Adam Finkelstein Director of Scouting

When Edwards is at his best, he’s scoring at multiple levels, being active defensively, and showing his ability to rebound in high-volume. He’s a lefty with good positional size at 6-foot-7 and naturally soft hands. He has a very advanced mid-range game with an ability to get to his spots, pull-up over top of contesting defenders, and even utilize a floater if he gets deep enough. He wasn’t just settling for tough twos at the Peach Jam though, and instead attacking the rim aggressively with a straight-line slashing style and no wasted dribbles. He’s also a capable shooting threat from behind the three-point line, but he would do well to keep developing both his handle and his long-distance shooting. Physically, he has a wiry frame that he must bulk-up. He can get bumped off his spots at times offensively, but shows deceptive strength on the defensive end in terms of his ability to body up with bigger players in the post, making him more switchable up the line-up than down. Edwards is also an excellent wing rebounder who is going to be able to play smallball four at the next level once he adds more muscle mass. While he doesn’t measure out especially long, he gets his hands on a lot of balls defensively with good instincts and reactions in any type of trapping or scrambling scheme. Overall, he’s the most versatile scorer of the group, one of the best rebounders, and has some positional versatility.
