Younger brother of Michigan legend to walk on to Wolverines as grad transfer
From 2001 to 2004, Braylon Edwards was one of the best wide receivers in the country, putting up 252 catches, 3,541 yards and 39 touchdowns for the Michigan Wolverines.
Now, 14 years after he left Ann Arbor, Edwards’ little brother, Berkley, is heading to Ann Arbor to finish his college career.
Berkley, a running back, started his career at Minnesota before playing at Central Michigan last year. According to The Michigan Insider, Berkley’s father, Stan Edwards, said his son can’t wait to finish his college eligibility with the Wolverines:
“Berkley is finally living his lifelong dream to touch the banner and get a Michigan degree,” Edwards’ father Stan told The Michigan Insider. “And who knows, maybe he’ll get some snaps in the process. He is working his tail off to see if he can find a role somewhere in the offense. I’m proud either way.”
Edwards is a graduate transfer, and he’ll join the team as a walk-on. He contributed mostly as a kick returner at Central Michigan.
What role he has at Michigan remains to be seen, but he’ll try his best to help the team his brother once starred for.
