He was on much the same pace last season, averaging 18.0 points before a knee injury cut his season to 15 games.
"Justin is a great addition to our basketball program. He had a terrific career at Owens for Coach [Dave] Clark, before his knee injury," Herrion said. "He is a big, strong and versatile guard who we feel can make an impact for us right away."
Sane and Edmonds join Shawn Smith, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound juco forward who signed in November. Also coming on board are 2012-13 nonqualifiers Ryan Taylor and Kareem Canty, the latter who was allowed to remain on scholarship and practice with the team. Taylor and Canty are not expected to have problems becoming eligible.
Also becoming eligible to play is TyQuane Goard, the George Washington High graduate who transferred from Ohio and paid his own way through his sit-out season.
Assuming Goard and Taylor have no sudden roadblocks, and the three juco recruits graduate from their two-year schools, the Herd will have five new scholarship players to join nine returnees (again, Canty is in the latter category).
DeAndre Kane is the most notable subject of speculation to leave the program, by far. He is due to graduate from MU this spring, and could transfer to a higher-profile program or even turn pro.
Herrion said there is nothing new on Kane's status.
