Mesquite, TX (Future150) -- Standing out in the large state of Texas is extremely hard for most young recruits.
Ryan Bradley, Jr., a 6-foot-5 small forward out of Mesquite, Texas, is doing his best to shine and to reach his goal of playing at a Division I college.
“I aspire to be recruited by a D1 school because I put in the work of a D1 player,” he explained. “I believe I may have been overlooked by D1 college recruiters and would love to have the opportunity to show my skill level.”
Bradley, Jr. is a Future150 Houston Camp participant that was able to use his time at the camp to gain a better outlook on his personal recruitment and future college decision.
“The information I received has helped me make better decisions regarding the colleges I plan to pursue,” Bradley claimed. “Also, my ranking on the Future150 site has helped in my recruiting efforts.”
Currently, the small forward wants to continue working on all of his basketball skills.
His strengths are his post moves, jump shot, and rebounding (offensively and defensively). His weakness is ball-handling, and he acknowledges it needs work.
Since he is a class of 2014 player, the recruitment has only recently begun. Arizona has sent a letter to inquire about him.
Bradley, Jr. also trying to plan some unofficial visits to Baylor, Texas, and Arizona University.
There is no set list of colleges recruiting him, but he did mention some dream schools to me.
“I really like Baylor and Kansas University,” he noted.
For now, Bradley, Jr. wants to just continue improve his game and work on finding a college that will fit his overall plan.
“I want to attend a college that has my major (Human Resource Management for a career as a Sports Agent) and one that has a team I can make an immediate impact on.”
