Catching Up With Corey Edwards

Corey Edwards might want to consider purchasing a new cell phone.

College assistant coaches from all over were dialing in to the junior point guard at Christ The King this summer.

“So many coaches called, I can’t even remember some of the schools that are recruiting me,” says Edwards.

While Edwards can’t recall some of the schools from down south and out west that expressed interest, one thing is certain.

“I want to go to a Big East school,” said Edwards, who’s being actively pursued by Marquette, St. John’s, Pittsburgh, Arizona, Auburn and a slew of others.

“I’ve narrowed my list down to Big East schools. I want to stay close to home.”

Edwards visited Marquette recently, where he was impressed with the coaching staff and comical antics of funnyman forward Jeronne Maymon.

“He’s a clown,” said Edwards of the Marquette freshman. “He loves to mess around.”

While Edwards isn’t in love with the idea of living in cold Milwaukee weather, he likes the Eagles’ tradition of producing solid guards.

“I want to go to a school for guards, and the Big East is one of the best conferences in the country and has good guards everywhere.”
