From Atascocita High School, to Purdue University and now the next step of his basketball journey has been decided on where he will go.

Carsen Edwards is heading to the Boston Celtics.

"It's special to me," Edwards told VYPE. "This took a lot of time, work and sacrifices. This is just the beginning but just to be here is just a blessing. It feels good."

Edwards, who was a scoring machine at Atascocita and Purdue, was selected with the 33rd overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers before being traded to the Boston Celtics.

Last season, Edwards entered the NBA Draft before decided to pull his name out and return to Purdue for another season. During the NCAA Tournament this year, Edwards caught fire being named the Most Outstanding Player in the South Region, averaging 35 points in just four games. On two occasions, Edwards scored 42 points in the tournament.
