Gonzaga center Ryan Edwards plans on working after finishing his broadcasting degree in May and he won’t play his senior season.
“It was definitely a tough decision,” Edwards said.
“Yeah, that definitely made me think about (coming back),” Edwards said. “I just thought I might as well start (working) now.”
Asked if he considered graduating and playing elsewhere next season, Edwards said, “If I was going to play, I was going to play with these guys.”
Freshman Jacob Larsen, who sat out last season with an ACL injury, is the only center on the roster. The 6-foot-9 Williams, if he opts to return, is a natural power forward but he did see limited minutes at center last season.
Edwards recently completed his redshirt junior season. The 7-1, 295-pound center from Kalispell played a career-low 48 minutes in 17 games this season.
He saw action in 31 games as a sophomore, averaging 2.6 points and 2.2 rebounds.
“It was awesome, a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Edwards said of his four years at Gonzaga. “I’m definitely grateful for everything.”
