Potential No. 1 pick and Georgia standout Anthony Edwards is entering the NBA Draft, he tells 247Sports.
“I just want to declare for the 2020 NBA Draft,” Edwards said.
The declaration from Edwards, a 6-foot-5, 225-pound combo guard, comes after a productive freshman season at Georgia, where he averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists a game. Edwards was the No. 1 player in 2019's Top247 recruiting rankings.
“I think I should go number one, no doubt,” Edwards told 247Sports. “That’s the only place I think I should go.”
Edwards signed this week with Octagon agent Omar Wilkes for his professional representation, per multiple sources. Wilkes has represented top 10 picks -- Trae Young and Cam Reddish -- in each of the past two NBA Drafts.
