It has finally come to the end of a process recruiting wise for one the top prospects in the country. Anderson CVI star Justin Edwards has committed to the University of Maine this afternoon he says, being the latest Canadian joining the Black Bears roster.

“Maine has been recruiting me for a very long time and they made it clear I was their top recruit.”  He said. “A great program, they have a good chance to be conference champs every year, the players and coaches were very friendly and honest with me.”

The Grassroots Canada product has been a man on the move in the past month, visiting Rhode Island, winning gold at the Junior International Tournament in Italy with the US Elite team, visiting Missouri, coming back home to drop 47 points to help his Wildcat OBA team claim the 2011 Blessed Sacrament tournament championship and then taking his final visit to Fresno State, before making his final decision.

“The thing that really made me choose Maine was that I have a great opportunity to come in right away and have a good impact and play lots of minutes, the school’s facilities are very nice, the gym is great, the weight room and dorms are also nice so it’s a very comfortable environment to be in. And lastly, it’s a great place for me to become successful and reach my goals and dreams.”

Edwards is a smooth athletic combo guard, with the ability to score big time numbers and also distribute the basketball. Gets to the rim with a quick first step and has the strength, leaping and hang time to finish around the rim. He led his Anderson to 3A OFSAA gold.

Black Bears picked up a good one, he should come in and make an impact on the team right away. The top shooting guard in the 2011 Canadian class is officially off the market.
