Mario Edwards trims to top three

Mario Edwards Jr. (Denton, Texas/Ryan) has trimmed his list of schools down to three.

The nation’s top prospect told the Dallas Morning News that, while he remains verbally committed to Florida State and has eliminated Oklahoma, he is down to Florida State, LSU and Texas.

"I'd say right now it's LSU, Texas and Florida State," he told the DMN on Thursday. "I want to go where I can get my degree in 3 1/2 years. I can do that at those three schools and all three use their defensive ends great. They really want their ends to get after it."

Edwards said he would visit Florida State this weekend and LSU on Jan. 20. He has already taken an official visit to Texas.
