Deon Edwards Signs with the Arkansas Razorbacks

Defensive Back, 6'1" 190, Lake Minneola High School, Lake Minneola, Florida

Deon Edwards has made his commitment to Arkansas official by faxing in his paperwork. Edwards had been a longtime commit and hasn't wavered throughout the process. He is one of the few Florida commits we have this cycle, and is the first of Arkansas' secondary recruits to fax in his LOI.

Deon brings good size to the position of strong safety, which it looks like he will be playing. Its important to have SEC size in the secondary in order to match up with some of the beasts these teams have running routes. In addition, Deon is an impressive hitter in the open field. He looks to bring similar intensity to the position as Rohan Gaines did. There is something to be said for having a physical presence in the secondary as well. No doubt he will become a contributing member to this team at some point.

Edwards picked Arkansas over 20 offers, including Mizzou.
