The University of Virginia has received a verbal commitment from Graham High School (Bluefield, VA) star Ahmad Bradshaw . Bradshaw had indicated his intentions to commit to UVA on Friday (January 9th) but finally reached the other programs involved over the weekend.
“I’m going to go to Virginia,” Bradshaw said. He has spoken with coaches from West Virginia and Virginia Tech, while he believes his grandmother informed UVA of his commitment. “It’s a great college and a great atmosphere. On my visit, they showed that they have a lot of great people and great athletes. I had a great visit.”
Bradshaw claims offers from Virginia, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech. UVA is recruiting the 5-10, 180 pound prospect as an athlete. He played tailback and safety for Graham, excelling in both areas.
While Bradshaw himself has not spoken with a UVA coach, he plans to later this week.
“Coach London is supposed to come in-home this Thursday,” Bradshaw said. “I’m going to tell him in person then that I’m committed.”
As a senior, Bradshaw rushed for 2,557 yards and 34 touchdowns. He led Graham to a 13-2 record and a place in the state AA semifinals. Bradshaw was named to the AP Group AA first-team all-state team at running back.
Academically, Bradshaw scored a 980 on the SAT’s and says he is confident he will have no trouble qualifying. He becomes UVA’s 14th commitment for the 2004 recruiting class.
