On Monday night, Andrew Edwards announced on Twitter that he was committing to play baseball at the University of Memphis.

After playing three years for Arlington High and preparing for his fourth, he decided that Memphis was the best place for his jump to the next level. Edwards said “I had been talking to the coaches for a little bit. They were really nice and they sounded like they had my best interests in mind… I love their program and everything about it.”

Other schools such as Jackson State University, Southwest Tennessee Community College, and Volunteer State Community College also contacted Edwards. He hopes to impress the Memphis coaches during the fall of 2019 and possibly be a relief pitcher for the 2020 season.

Edwards will be reunited with his former high school teammate Hunter Goodman, who committed to Memphis in 2017. Ironically enough, both Edwards and his family are University of Tennessee fans, and they plan to learn more about the University of Memphis and the American Athletic Conference.

While playing summer baseball for the Memphis Travelers, Edwards pitched 24.1 innings with 21 strikeouts, and 14 runs allowed. At the college level he jokingly said “I’m hopefully going to break a few records if possible.” On a more serious note Edwards added “I’m just hoping to prepare myself for the MLB if that were to come and if not, just have fun.”
