Class of 2024 DE/TE KingJoseph Edwards (GA) COMMITTED / SIGNED NLI TO SYRACUSE (12/19/23)

It's 2 highlights in a practice for an all-star game.

Hardly indicative of anything.

I'm hopeful about this kid, but let's get excited about how he plays in the actual game.

Im all for guys getting excited for our guys but 1v1's are equivalent to 7v7's without pads. Now if he kills it in the game I will be estatic.
I’m just excited because he clearly moves very well for a guy that put on a bunch of weight and is moving to the inferior per the crack Rivals analysts. Anything that makes them look like the goofs they are is fine by me.

Nah you dont have to explain why you are excited. You should be. Im just not the type that get hyped from 1v1's. Ive been burned in the past. It makes everyone look like a stud. lol

So, you’d prefer a guy who looks like azz in 1v1’s then? :p
 
When is the All american game that he is playing in?

Is he at the wrong all star game? That tackle looks like he is about 12.
That's part of why people are skeptical of some of the footage we get... I was super excited after watching that video. If that guy is actually a top ranked tackle, Edwards handling him like that is pretty impressive. If that guy is just camp filler without any D1 offers, we shouldn't be as excited.

Also if that kid is a skinny tight end, not so much either.

Still, Edwards looks to be explosive, strong, and have good technique, even if that level of competition isn't super impressive.

None of this means he will be a guaranteed starter as a frosh or anything but all things being equal we want him to look good. I mean this isn't just some random camp where he is beating scrubs. He is going up against elite talent at Under Armour All American game practices. No problem getting a little excited if Edwards is doing well. We should be. Now of course the camp wants to show the best for everyone there and paint them in a good light but when you get mentioned as 1 of 3 DL being called out as excelling from a guy like Adam Friedman who is a Rivals National Recruiting Analyst/Rankings Director and then you also get mentioned as dominating in 1 v 1's by this Demetric Warren guy who is apparently the UA All-America Game Player Personnel Director why not be excited?

I love that he isn't just beating a guy around the outside either. He is getting to the QB with power and moves. And I love the fact that he is apparently adding weight. How anyone sees that as a negative is beyond me. Looking at the A&M roster they like their DE's pretty big. Love this. Can't wait to see how he does in the game.

If he does well, they will say his name, they will say where he is going. It helps to change the perception.

Being consistently listed as a standout in practice is absolutely something worth getting excited about. And I am excited about it.

One single cherry picked practice highlight is not.
 
I think when it is all said and done, this kid is going to be lauded as a key recruiter, NOT JUST for the great play he will have on the field. I am hearing about his efforts to get other kids also to Syracuse. Too bad McKinley isn't on team Ice also so that KJE could spend even more time trying to recruit him to Syracuse. This kid KJE is special

Do I like his physique, quickness, and get off? yes. Do I like his hand placement and arm extention? Yes. I see things I like and hope translates to the game. Im just not going to decrease or increase my expectations from watching a few 1v1 clips. It has nothing to do with my excitement level.

I am willing to extrapolate from single highlight plays in some circumstances.

For instance, Edwards just picked up a four star OT listed at 275 with one arm and carried him to the quarterback. That play would have been amazing if we'd seen it in any kind of game.

The fact he did it in a meaningless drill doesn't make it any less impressive. The other kid is still trying.
