ATHENS Georgia basketball freshman Anthony "Antman" Edwards has yet to play a second in a college game, but already, he's a legend in the making.
Edwards, who's expected to start for Coach Tom Crean's Bulldogs this season, is being projected as the No. 1 overall pick by Bleacher Report in its "Way-Too-Soon 2020 NBA Lottery Mock Draft."
"He's a scoring 2-guard with secondary playmaking ability in the mold of Victor Oladipo," writes Jonathan Wasserman, comparing the UGA freshman to the top-five NBA pick Crean developed at Indiana.
"Edwards has developed into a ball-screen weapon who can also create his own shot with drives, pull-ups and step-backs."
Edwards recently sat down with the WSB Bulldogs Game Day show and made it clear his mindset is to make it about "team" at Georgia.
"I came to Georgia where we're a team, we were all highly recruited," said Edwards, a consensus top-five national recruit out of Atlanta's Holy Spirit Prepatory School.
"We're in this together, no one is separate, and I love all my guys," he said. "We're all gelling together, getting to know each other, spending time with each other, building our chemistry and trying to get better as a team."
How's life at @UGABasketball with all the new recruits now in Athens?
Here's Ant Man, Anthony Edwards!

Some of that time together has been spent on the football field for conditioning, pushing sleds.

"We're gonna really kick the training up this offseason after this mandatory seven-day break," Crean said after last season. "This is not going to be business as usual."
