Etiwanda High School basketball standout Kameron Edwards has committed to Pepperdine.
Edwards was a first-team Baseline League and All-Inland Valley selection as a junior, helping the Eagles to the Open Division semifinals where they lost in double overtime to national No. 1 Mater Dei. He was also a second-team All-CIF selection.
Edwards, a 6-foot-5 forward, averaged 13,6 points and a team-high 7.2 rebounds in his first year as a varsity starter. His sophomore season was limited because of a broken ankle.
Edwards also made an official visit to Santa Clara with unofficial trips to University of San Diego, UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton.
“The scenery is just beautiful,” Edwards said. “I really enjoyed the people I met and I like the direction the program is headed.”
Edwards also welcomed the chance to get the decision made so he can focus on his senior year. He is also close to his family and preferred to stay close enough they can come see him play.
“I want to be able to just worry about practice and games and not all the other stuff,” he said.
With the departure of Jordan McLaughlin (to USC), Edwards his expected to have an even more prominent role for the Eagles this season.
Edwards plans to major in something in the business field.
