Edwards, a five-star recruit from Atlanta, Ga., decided to stay home and played one season for head coach Tom Crean at the University of Georgia.

Edwards played 32 contests for the Bulldogs and averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.3 steals per game. He shot 40.2% from the field, 77.2% from the free-throw line and 29.4% from 3-point range.

The 19-year-old was voted the SEC Freshman of the Year and was named to the All-SEC second team by league coaches.

It marks the second time Minnesota has owned the first overall pick in NBA draft history. The first occasion was 2015 when the Wolves selected center Karl-Anthony Towns. Through five NBA seasons, Towns has been named an All-Star twice and was also the 2015-16 Rookie of the Year.
