Recruit Profile: Orion Edwards

Orion Edwards

Biographical Data: 5’8 165 – Newmarket High [Newmarket, ON] & York-Simcoe Bucs

Position:  DB – A good RB and returner at the H.S. level his future is in the defensive backfield. Edwards is likely a corner in the CIS. Though his size and speed most suit that position his fundamentals are so exceptional he could play almost anywhere in the defensive backfield.

Honours:  Three-time MVP at Newmarket as well as team captain three years; Two-time York Region All Star; Played for the GTA Current Stars in 2012 & 2011, plus the Rising Stars in 2010;

My Take:  I heard one coach say that Edwards’ footwork is so good that you could use it in an instructional video. That, combined with his speed and athleticism, makes me think he stands a chance to surprise some people and fight for early playing time. Watching his highlights tells me Edwards is a physical player with very good instincts. His strong fundamentals include tackling.
