UPDATE 5/3: After this was initially posted, Corey Edwards texted to say he spoke with an assistant coach at Miami, not directly with head coach Jim Larranaga. He said the assistant coach “asked me what do [you] think of Miami. He didn’t come out blatant and say would you come to Miami.”
He also said, “In June I am goin to George Mason.”
George Mason signee Corey Edwards said new Miami coach Jim Larranaga talked to him about following the coach to Miami and that he is considering it.
“The coach from George Mason is talking about me going over to Miami,” Edwards said Monday by phone. “I told him it could be a possibility.”
The news broke April 22 that Larranaga was leaving George Mason for Miami.
Edwards said Larranaga called him “a couple days after he took the job.”
