It's official: Edwards applying for NFL draft

January 1st, 2013

Cornerback/returner Mike Edwards will forgo his senior season and apply for the NFL draft.

Here's the story: Edwards.

The cupboard won't be bare. Ne'Quan Phillips and Tony Grimes have started. Brian Clay, who redshirted in 2012, and John Hardy-Tuliau could play there. The coaches like Anthony Pierce, who grayshirted this past fall, and Ronald Fields, who is awaiting verification of eligibility.

But, still, there was a reason Edwards was the Warriors' MVP and a co-captain in 2012. He's that good.

The recruiting dead period expires at 12:01 a.m. Thursday. No recruiting trips are planned for UH this weekend. Instead, the coaches are expected to make home visits. The dead period is activated next week because of the coaches' convention. The Warriors have booked visits for the remaining three recruiting weekends prior to the Feb. 6 signing day.

The volleyball Warriors depart this evening for their season-opening road matches against Brigham Young on Friday and Saturday.

The Warriors usually arrive the day before a match. But because of favorable air fares, they will have an extra day of practice in Provo. That should be helpful in adjusting to the thin air.

Money is the root of all decisions.

It is why roving-eye Boise State spent a decade  begging to get into the Mountain West, a year pledging to the Big East and a couple of months deciding that the MWC is the better fit after all.

It also is why San Diego State is in a bit of a predicament. The Aztecs have $$$ in their eyes but holes in their pockets. There are five million reasons why the Aztecs might have trouble pulling the escape cord. The first lesson of being a wingman to Boise: Make sure you have your own ride home.
