Edwards recorded seven tackles and four pass deflections while at UF. The rising junior did not redshirt as a freshman, and thus can redshirt while having to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
On May 6, Edwards was arrested in Gainesville for misdemeanor battery, however last week the State Attorney’s Office reported that the victim stated that no crime occurred, therefore ending the prosecution.
Losing Edwards is a big blow to the Florida secondary that was expected to lean on his leadership.
