LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) – UK’s John Calipari has added another big piece to his 2023 recruiting class puzzle. 5-star forward Justin Edwards out of Imhotep Institute in Philadelphia has committed to Kentucky men’s hoops on Monday evening.

Edwards, who committed on national television, said Kentucky will “allow him to be himself” while continuing to work on the weaknesses in his game. The 6’7″ forward is ranked as the No. 1 small forward in the class of 2023 by 247Sports.

Edwards is the third commitment for the 2023 recruiting cycle, joining Top-50 players in North Laurel’s Reed Sheppard, and Robert Dillingham.
