Max Edwards, the former Bunnell High product, has verbally committed to play next season at Division I Kansas State University. Edwards announced the news on his Twitter page on Sunday.
Edwards, now playing for Our Saviour Lutheran in the Bronx, said he is “110% committed” to Kansas State on his Twitter page. He will follow another former Register/GameTimeCT all-state selection, Mike McGurl from East Catholic, to play for Bruce Weber and the Wildcats.
“I chose Kansas State because I felt like it was the best university to bring me to the next level after college and push me to be the best version of myself while I’m there,” Edwards said. “Coach Weber and the rest of the staff made me feel like family from day one of recruiting, so I’m excited to be a part of something like that.”
Other schools making scholarship offers to Edwards, a 6-foot-5 small forward, according to Rivals.com were as follows: Seton Hall, UMass, Sacred Heart, Quinnipiac and Towson.
Dannie Powell, Edwards’ former coach at Bunnell, told Hearst Connecticut Media back in August of 2019 that Sacred Heart and Towson had offered Edwards, along with Hofstra, Bryant, Fairfield, Robert Morris and Cleveland State.
Edwards transferred to Our Saviour Lutheran in August of 2019, then reclassified, repeating his junior year.
