Kedar Edwards is leaving LIU Brooklyn without ever playing in a single game for the Blackbirds and will play next season for State Fair Community College, a Division-I junior college in Sedalia Missouri, according to Brad Winton of JuCoRecruiting.com.

Edwards, a Brooklyn native who went to West Oaks Academy in Florida, committed with the LIU Brooklyn just about a year ago, but never played a game for the Blackbirds after he was deemed academically ineligible by the NCAA. The NCAA never fully explained why, but claimed that it was due to the status of his high school.

The 6-foot-4 Edwards stayed at LIU during the 2012-13 season and attended classes, but with a full roster that doesn’t include him heading into this season, he has obviously has decided to move on.

Edwards was a two-star recruit and was once considered the No. 7 ranked prospect in Florida when he was still in high school. Here is a brief highlight video of Edwards from 2011:
