Back in the saddle Monday

Nate Schmidt tweeted: "Leo Edwards 2013 F Romulus (MI) just committed to Louisiana Tech while on his official visit"

Congrats to Coach Mike White for landing the 6-foot-8 frontcourter. The young man is on the thin side and raw but displays plenty of potential.

One description from back in 2010:
Edwards is an intriguing prospect for many reasons but one of the main reasons is that he’s 6-8 at the age of 14. He’s slim but athletic and once he grows into his body he’ll have a good build. He still has a lot of work to do, but showed a ton of promise. He doesn’t have much in the way of post moves, but he went after every rebounds and played pretty good defense in the post against some stronger players. I would have liked to see him call for the ball more and assert himself in the post but he seemed content to get putbacks off of misses by Morris and Watts. He’s so young you can’t really fault him for not asserting himself, especially since he’s playing with a bunch of 16-year-olds. Very exciting prospect.
One question: what's LT's connection to Detroit or Michigan?


Denver's Chris Udofia receives some national print from Nick Masulo:
"...Playing for a team that won nine more games last season than it did the year before, Udofia has become the centerpiece of a program that is knocking on the door. One of the most physical big men in the country, the senior will look to lead the Pioneers and challenge Utah State in the WAC for the program's first NCAA Tournament berth. Check him out in early season games against the PAC-12's Cal and Stanford."
