Some things are too good to be true, and that seems to be the case for the Wildcats with high school running back Dylan Edwards. After committing to Kansas State on June 23rd, Edwards has decided to open his options back up and explore other schools.
The 5’8, 155-pound prospect is the second-ranked player out of the state of Kansas, behind K-State commit Avery Johnson. In his short time committed to the Wildcats, Edwards did his part trying to recruit other players to join him in purple and had Kansas State fans counting down the days until Signing Day. Now, fans will be holding their breath while they wait to see where Edwards decides to attend college.
The Derby (KS) running back took to Twitter to release a statement regarding his decommittment.
The decommitment of Edwards comes just two days after receiving an offer from Notre Dame. This doesn’t mean Kansas State don’t have a dog in the fight, as Dylan’s dad Leon Edwards is a former player for the Wildcats.
With all the money to be made in NIL deals, this decision may be shocking at first ,but as you start to consider things it starts to make sense. Edwards has earned a four-star rating as a recruit and has become a hot commodity amongst schools. You are only given this opportunity once, and for Edwards it seems like he doesn’t want to rush into anything until he sees everything that is on the table.
The four-star running back also holds offers from Oklahoma, Nebraska, Michigan State, and Oregon as well as many others.
