Bradley doubled his sophomore production as a junior where Bradley caught 96 passes for 1,595 yards and 21 touchdowns last year, while as a sophomore Bradley caught 44 passes for 852 yards and 8 touchdowns. Rivals Sam Spiegelman talked to Bradley about his commitment to Texas Tech (there’s more there at the link):
“Texas Tech is making me a priority and doing their best to make me a Red Raider and they’ve been recruiting me hard since Day 1. No fake love at all.”
“Texas Tech is a great fit because they have a great education system and they use guys with my size very well.”
“Coach Matt Wells, Coach (Joel) Filani, and Coach (DeAndre) Smith. They’ve been trying to get me on board ever since they offered me. And Coach Filani, being my position coach, I talk to him a lot and I feel very comfortable with talking to him about anything. Same with Coach Wells and Coach Smith.”
And goodness, the video is man amongst boys sort of stuff, he’s clearly a superior athlete and he makes plays because he’s just a better player. A significantly better player. Which could mean that he’s so much better than the defenders that he can make anyone look silly, which is a real possibility. Bradley has really nice speed for someone his size and I don’t know why teams aren’t double-teaming him on a consistent basis, but I’m also not a defensive coordinator. Phenomenal athlete and a heck of a player. Would love to see Bradley going up and grabbing the ball at the top of the pass, but that’ will come with someone at his size.
