2022 five-star point guard Jaden Bradley receives offer from Kentucky

The good news continues to roll in for Kentucky Men’s Basketball to start 2021.

After starting off the SEC schedule with a double-overtime win over Mississippi State on Saturday, 2022 five-star point guard Jaden Bradley announced on Sunday that he has received a scholarship offer from head coach John Calipari and the Wildcats program.

Bradley, who is ranked as the No. 9 prospect in his class according to the 247 Sports Composite score, currently attends IMG Academy down in Florida. The native of Rochester, NY is the second-highest ranked point guard among 2022 recruits and the fourth-highest recruit in the state of Florida. Skyy Clark is the lone member of the 2022 Kentucky recruiting class, although there have been rumors that Clark might wind up reclassifying to 2021.

A FutureCast prediction for Bradley has already been logged in favor of Kentucky by Travis Graf over at Rivals, who did so not long after Bradley announced his offer. The 6-foot-2 point guard has already received scholarships from the likes of North Carolina, Kansas, Louisville, and Tennessee.

Check out some of Bradley’s highlights below.

    I’ve about had it with 5-stars. How many stars did Dontae Allen have.

    I’ve about had it with 5-stars. How many stars did Dontae Allen have? Let’s just get dudes who can play in a team concept. Gonzaga has had exactly one 5-star in the history of the school, and they would run circles around all our 5-stars.

      No let’s not recruit the best players?? How about we recruit them and let them come off the bench until they are READY to play and actually better than someone ahead of them. Tennessee has 2 five stars that come off the bench. Take notes Cal. Keep some guys around and let the 5 stars EARN their way onto the court. But come on man…you don’t want to recruit the best players??smh..

    Not recruiting 5 stars? Come down off the ledge. I aint about the constant revolving door either. But the problem I have certainly isn’t recruiting 5 stars, its losing every single kid that even mentions the NBA. Why does it seem like we are the only program that does that? If even HALF the kids that should have stayed another year would have stayed?

      Duke loses players as well, as well as Kansas and sometimes NC. Our problem is not keeping other experienced players and that I do blame on CAL

    Just because we offered a kid is not GOOD NEWS . Amateur hyperbole writing .

      Why isn’t offering a five star kid good news? It’s good news to him and his family. gtfo

    Basketball IQ? Is Cal allowed to offer caucasian shooters?

      Tyler Herro?

    Has ANYONE seen this kid ACTUALLY play? Or is this based on the YouTube Rap-Music Mixtape? I could have him shoot 20 free-throws and tell you within 10 minutes if he sucks or not. If it is a coin-flip whether he could beat Chuck Hayes or Ramon Harris out of 20, then we should pass. By the way, would Cal recruit or even sign Larry Bird or Chris Mullin today?

      Tyler Herro?
      Devin Booker
      James Young
      Aaron Harrison
      IQ
      Malik Monk

      All were considered great shooters. If that’s what (hopefully) you mean?

    There seem to be a lot of five stars. Go get em Cal. Just really evaluate them. You’ve missed lately.

    No. 9 prospect in his class. Why are we looking at him. How about 1-8 ?

      Yeah number 9 in the class is horrible..really? I believe he’s number 2 at his position. You don’t think that’s good enough?

    Speaks the truth. Most of these tapes the stars look like their playing against bad church league teams! Cal likes ‘athletes’; I like shooters. Big difference. Get an ‘athlete’ that can shoot and I’m good to go.
