Being behind current LSU freshman John Emery on the depth chart at Destrehan did not cost Kyle Edwards exposure with college recruiters. Instead, the talented senior running back has committed to a powerhouse.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Edwards announced his commitment to Friday to the University of Alabama.

Other Power 5 programs interested in Edwards include Notre Dame, Michigan, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. He was not heavily pursued by LSU although he did attend camp there.

While the highly-coveted Emery shined in 2018, Edwards took advantage of his chances as a junior with 708 yards and eight touchdowns on 112 carries.
