BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC Local 33) (FOX 44) — LSU graduate transfer Daryl Edwards has a new home. The 6’3″ guard will play his final year of college basketball at the University of Texas – El Paso (UTEP), according to multiple sources.

Edwards hails from Fresno and played for LSU for two seasons. In 2018-19, Edwards appeared in nine games, where he averaged 4.4 points with a high of 12 points against Louisiana Tech.

He was sidelined with a foot injury and after the season, decided to transfer from the program and committed to Nevada in February.

After word that Edwards would not play at Nevada, he was linked to Fresno State in April. The Fresno Bee however, ultimately reported that he was “ineligible and [would] not play for the Bulldogs, the issue coming up after he had signed with Fresno State.”

UTEP head coach Rodney Terry coached at Fresno State for eight seasons.

Edwards is immediately eligible to play in the 2019-2020 season for the Miners.
