In his lone year at the University of Georgia, Edwards averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game as a freshmen. Those numbers earned him second-team All-SEC and SEC Freshman of the Year honors.
In his scouting report, NBA.com's Kyle Irving details why Edwards' physique is a huge reason why he is the No. 1 overall pick.
"Edwards' size is his biggest draw as the potential No. 1 overall pick. At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds with a 6-foot-9 wingspan, Edwards already has the body of a prototypical NBA player. His broad shoulders complement his strength, quickness and elite athleticism, matching his playstyle perfectly."

At 19, Edwards fits well as a wing alongside the Timberwolves' current young core of Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell.
