Graham (Bluefield, VA) running back Ahmad Bradshaw could not make his previously scheduled official visit to UVA on November 29th. But because the G-Men lost in the state semifinals to Gretna, he was able to make this date to visit Virginia.
“We had planned on going today for a couple of weeks but weren’t sure if we could make it,” Bradshaw said. “It turned out we could, and it was awesome. The visit went awesome. I didn’t get there until Saturday morning but I had a great time.”
Hosted by Marquis Weeks, Bradshaw enjoyed talking with the coaches and the players. The favorite part of his trip, however, was watching the team practice for the Continental Tire Bowl showdown versus Pittsburgh.
“I loved watching practice,” Bradshaw said. “It was an awesome experience.”
Before he went home today, Ahmad met with Head Coach Al Groh. He said “Coach Groh was just telling me what he really wants in a team and that he wants me to be a part of it.”
Virginia is recruiting Bradshaw as an athlete, with cornerback or wide receiver being the likely options. He primarily played tailback and safety for Graham this season. He rushed for over 2,400 yards on the year.
Following this weekend, Bradshaw is not sure if he will make any more visits.
“I’m thinking about taking some more visits,” Bradshaw said. In addition to his offer from Virginia, he has an offer from West Virginia and is receiving interest from Virginia Tech. “I don’t have any set…I’m just thinking about it right now. I’m not sure.”
Ahmad did not name a leader, as he wants to remain “open” until he makes his decision. It appears he had an excellent visit to UVA, and the Cavaliers are in great position right now.
Graham lost to Gretna 27-22 in the state semifinals. Gretna features UVA commit, junior Vic Hall, who impressed the ultra-productive Bradshaw.
“Gretna has an awesome team,” Bradshaw stated. “Hall is a very good player. He reminds me of Michael Vick out there.”
