Juco OL Tyler Edwards picks WVU

Blinn College center/offensive tackle Tyler Edwards has committed to play in the Big 12 for the Mountaineers, multiple sources report. He was recruited by West Virginia OL coach Bill Bedenbaugh.

Edwards, a Malvern, Ark., native, made an official visit to Morgantown last weekend for West Virginia's 70-63 shootout win over Baylor.

Kansas State, Louisiana Tech, Texas Tech and UTEP also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-5, 288-pounder. Arkansas, New Mexico, North Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State showed interest.

Edwards is the third pledge on the offensive line and first from the junior college ranks for West Virginia during this cycle.
