Up until this point, coaches were allowed to contact parents and coaches of prospects in the class of 2022, but they weren’t legally allowed to reach out to the players directly.
Bradley, a 6-foot-2, 160-pound point guard, is considered the No. 9 overall prospect and No. 2 point guard in 2022 according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
As of today, Bradley holds scholarship offers from the likes of Florida, Kansas, Louisville, Michigan, and North Carolina, among others. UK has not yet extended an offer, but one is expected this summer.
Friday afternoon, Bradley announced he will be transferring from Cannon School in Concord, NC to IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL to join fellow five-star prospects Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, Moussa Diabate, and Jarace Walker.
This past season, Bradley took an unofficial visit to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness, a trip he tells KSR was “unbelievable.”
“Oh, man. It’s a great feeling,” Bradley said. “Family atmosphere. It was unbelievable, even the Blue and White scrimmage felt like a real game. No one was going through the motions, they were competing and going at guys, trying to get each other better and get ready for the season. I like what Coach Cal does with his guys in trying to get them ready for the next level.”
