Friday, July 23, 2010

Sources close to the Journal-World confirmed Thursday that the football career of incoming KU freshman football player Jeremiah Edwards likely is over.

The source said that Edwards, a three-star defensive tackle from Garland, Texas, learned recently that tests concerning a previously diagnosed heart condition revealed that the ailment was worse than originally determined.

The source also indicated that Edwards would meet with Gill today and that Edwards hoped to stay in Lawrence and remain involved with the KU football program in some manner.

Edwards, 6-foot-1, 270 pounds, committed to KU in April 2009, choosing the Jayhawks over Arizona, Houston, Southern Methodist, Texas Tech, Tulsa and UTEP.
