Seventy-First High School (Fayetteville, NC) linebacker/defensive end prospect Kevin Bradley is hoping to receive more scholarship offers during this final recruiting month. Bradley has an offer from Central Michigan, and is receiving interest from Virginia, Mississippi State, Army, and Duke.

Bradley begins his official visits this weekend with a trip to Mississippi State. Well, at least he hopes to.

“I’m supposed to go to Mississippi State this weekend, Virginia next weekend, and Central Michigan the weekend after that,” Bradley said. “The Mississippi State visit is kind of up in the air because some of the coaches might not be there.”

Mississippi State and Virginia are the two front-runners at this point.

“Right now, Virginia and Mississippi State are my two favorites,” Bradley said. “I’m just waiting on my visits. I want to see all of the campuses and see what offers I get and then decide. I’m excited to start taking the visits and see what it’s all about.”

The Cavaliers, who are recruiting Bradley as a linebacker/fullback, are led by primary recruiter Corwin Brown. Brown has kept in touch with Bradley throughout the process, and has advised him on where he stands in terms of receiving an offer.

“Coach Corwin Brown is my main recruiter,” Bradley said. “I had a pretty good showing during their summer camp, and he’s kept in touch with me for a while. Virginia sends me the most letters of anyone. Coach Brown was at the Shrine Bowl and saw me play. He said it’s his gut feeling was that I’m going to get an offer, but they are working the numbers. He said everybody likes me.”

Bradley had an outstanding senior season, as he earned a spot on the NC/SC Shrine Bowl roster. The 6-2, 230 pound prospect played defensive end for Coach Chuck Marrs, and shined as an edge rusher. He possesses excellent speed, as he ran a 4.57 during a one-day combine at Seventy-First High School. Very strong, he can bench press a maximum of 360 pounds and squats 500 pounds.

Although Bradley has a great combination of size, speed, and strength, most schools view him as a “tweener,” which is why Coach Marrs believes his star has not received more offers.

“Kevin’s just a great kid,” Marrs said. “We run a 3-5 and play him off the edge. He’s so fast that he turns everything back inside.
