Five-Star Guard VJ Edgecombe Set For His Baylor Official Visit This Weekend

Baylor Men’s Basketball will host Long Island Lutheran (NY) five-star guard VJ Edgecombe‍ on his official visit in Waco over the weekend. This will be the five-star prospects second official visit so far.

Baylor assistant coach Alvin Brooks went to see Edgecombe at his high school this past Tuesday ahead of his trip to Waco. The staff is clearly pushing to land the impact prospect and appear to be putting the full court press on leading into the visit.

The Baylor staff offered him following his strong performance at the Sportrader Showdown in Las Vegas this summer. The 6-foot-6 prospect averaged 23 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists during the event. He is the kind of player who fits what Baylor likes being a long, versatile wing who can really shoot the basketball.

Edgecombe took an official visit to Florida in September and has visits to Michigan (October 14th), Duke (October 21st), Alabama (November 4th), and Florida State (November 11th) scheduled. Kentucky recently offered so the Wildcats will likely try to secure an official visit as well.

Currently he is ranked as a five-star prospect and the No. 6 player in the 2024 class according to 247’s Composite Ranking. On3 has him as the No. 4 player in his class which is his highest national ranking.

The staff had five-star guard Tre Johnson‍ on campus two weeks ago and will have another five-star guard on campus this weekend in Edgecombe. In theory it would be great to land both but with five-star wing Jason Asemota‍ and four-star point guard Robert Wright‍ in the class already this feels like an either/or type situation for Baylor. We will see who makes a decision first.

Makes me think Tre is leaning UT. Would love both but either player with Asemota and Wright has to be a top 5 class.

I know nothing about where Tre Johnson is leaning but we would have room for all of them.

Can he play defense? And what I really mean is, can he set the edge or tackle in space?

For the next couple of years we should have MBB prospects visit on weekends when the FB team is out of town.

While we're at it, move homecoming later in the Fall and feature a WBB/MBB doubleheader...

Can't help but laugh at this. The bball team needs to stay away from fb. This program has guys with fire, don't want that softness rubbing off on this elite program. Rhoades needs to get out of the way too.
