Spring Classic: Chandler White, Hyron Edwards highlights & quotes

We profiled Michigan’s early interest in 2015 Indiana Elite prospects Hyron Edwards and Chandler White earlier this spring but had a chance to watch the duo first hand in Indianapolis. Edwards already holds offers from Purdue and Indiana while White mentioned that he plans to attend camp at Michigan this June. Here’s video footage of both prospects in action as well as quick interviews surrounding their recruitments.
