Decision day has arrived for Justin Edwards, a man who may very well finish as the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2023 class.
Edwards, ranked as high as No. 3 overall by 247 Sports, officially visited Kentucky on November 19th last year and has maintained a strong connection with Orlando Antigua, as well as the rest of head coach John Calipari’s staff.
However, the Tennessee Volunteers made a strong push for Edwards, so much that they were viewed as the favorites until recently when Calipari took the lead on the recruitment.
Since then, Kentucky has regained the momentum and is now viewed as the heavy favorite heading into tonight’s decision. The Wildcats currently hold every prediction at Rivals, On3 and 247 Sports.
You can stream tonight’s CBS Sports HQ announcement at 7 pm ET on computers and mobile devices, or you can use the CBS Sports app. Go here for more info.
