Edwards, the nation's 18th-ranked safety, committed to Ohio State in February unexpectedly. Since then, he's visited a handful of colleges and Auburn was viewed as the biggest threat to the Buckeyes' security, and that apparently has proved true today.
The 6-foot, 196-pound Edwards confirmed his flip via Twitter moments later.

When asked what made the difference for Edwards, the Florida star was to the point.
"The family atmosphere," he said of what Auburn has working for it. "My parents were happy, and I love the coaches."
