HERITAGE HEAD COACH MIKE FULLER
"Eddie was a versatile and effective player on defense, playing both corner and safety this season. He also provided a big spark to our offense as a receiver. He's a big-play kind of guy.
"He is a naturally gifted athlete, and a guy that is just blessed with plenty of speed. It's a tremendous asset for this young man.
"Eddie was a physical presence for us, even at his current size. When he gets in the Vanderbilt program and starts putting
on some more weight, I think he's going to become quite a corner."
