CT Native Big 12 Bound

Connecticut native Max Edwards announced his verbal commitment to Kansas State University on Sunday. 

Edwards currently attends Our Saviour Lutheran High School in the Bronx but previously spent three years at Bunnell High School. 

The 6-foot-4 swingman scored over 1600 points in his three years in the CIAC while averaging 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists per game in the 2018-19 season. He also led Bunnell to an SWC championship that year. 

At OSL, he joined a line-up that featured current St. John's freshmen Posh Alexander and Dylan Wusu, along with Pitt freshman big man Max Amadasun. This year, he's taken on a more prominent role in the team's offense, despite the fact that the pandemic has limited OSL's games to date. 

"The biggest thing to me was that they told me that I am a priority and not just a want," Edwards told 247's Travis Branham. "I know I have to live up to those expectations but I can go in there and make a big impact and can have a big role next year."

His commitment will make him the second Connecticut native on Kansas State's roster as he'll join East Catholic alum Mike McGuirl, who is currently a senior but will retain a year of eligibility.
