2015 East Chicago Central point guard Hyron Edwards has early offers from Indiana and Purdue and is establishing himself this spring as one of the top Indiana players in his class.

Edwards was watched by both Tom Crean and Calbert Cheaney as well as Michigan assistant Lavall Jordan and Purdue coach Matt Painter over the weekend at the adidas Spring Classic in Fishers. We’ve compiled over a minute of high definition quality video of Edwards from the event, which is available in the embedded media player below:

A video interview along with a transcribed Q & A with Edwards is available after the jump.

On what it’s been like following the two early offers from Indiana and Purdue:

“It’s been crazy. Everybody’s been writing me on Twitter, Facebook and everything, calling me and stuff. Just telling me congratulations on the offers.”

On if the early offers are a milestone of success for him after performing well on the spring AAU circuit:

“It’s been great. I’ve been working to get offers from colleges and I finally got two of them.”

On what he’s trying to work on this summer with Indiana Elite:

“Probably my shot. Working on my shot a little more. Working on my ball handling a little more and getting stronger, too. And being a better point guard.”

On whether his court vision and passing are the key strengths to his game:

“That’s kind of my strength, finding the open man on the court.”

On who he watched growing up and tried to emulate his game after:

“I liked Allen Iverson. I liked him a lot.”

On the conversation with Tom Crean when he received the Indiana offer:

“He said he liked me as a point guard. I’m a freshman but I play like a junior or a senior. My court vision is very good he said.”

On the schools recruiting him besides Indiana and Purdue:

“Michigan, Xavier and Northwestern.”

On winning MVP honors at the adidas Exclusive VIP run:

“It was great because there were a lot of great teams we were playing against. Dream Vision in the championship game was very tough. It was great to get MVP. My team helped me win MVP.”

On playing with shooters like the Duncan twins and Chandler White on Indiana Elite:

“It helps me a lot. Without shooters, my passing wouldn’t be anything if they don’t make the shots.”
