Some of the biggest news that will drop for any commitment for the 2019 recruiting cycle on February 11 when the nation's top prospect announced his pledge to the Georgia Bulldogs.

Anthony Edwards, the nation's top shooting guard and arguably the best high school player in the country from Holy Spirit Preparatory School in Atlanta, has committed to the Bulldogs and will bring a huge game and a massive buzz to Athens, Georgia next season.

The Georgia commitment is a big win for head coach Tom Crean, who is looking to keep in-state players at home instead of rival schools.

The 17-year-old, a top-five senior pick for ESPN and the number one prospect in the Top247 2019 recruiting class, made his decision public on Monday via an interview with CBS Sports.

However, Texas basketball and Georgia's 2019 recruiting classes are separated by the slimmest of margins in the national rankings. Some of his highlights are absolutely incredible, showing that he can live above the rim. Edwards, whose nickname is "Ant Man", chose Georgia over Kentucky and Florida State.

Edwards told Biancardi he planned to recruit uncommitted classmates Precious Achiuwa and Lester Quinones to Georgia. Edwards, a blue chip prospect that is projected to go No. 1 overall in the 2020 NBA Draft according to NBADraft.net, is vertically gifted at the 2 guard position with pro comparisons to James Harden.

Edwards lives approximately 90 minutes away from Georgia's campus and he admitted the opportunity of remaining close to his family while at college was very important to him.
