The Kentucky Wildcats visited Jaden Bradley on Monday morning — the No. 7 overall recruit in the class of 2022 — according to Rivals’ Corey Evans.
Bradley is the No. 2 point guard in his class, per Rivals’ newly released rankings. The 6-3, 170-pound sophomore plays his high school ball for the Cannon School in Charlotte, North Carolina, but he hails originally from Rochester, New York.
While this class could end up being the first able to enter the NBA Draft straight out of high school, it appears John Calipari may have found his top point guard target early in the process.
Building that relationship early on can be crucial in some recruitments, especially for the top guys in the class. And I don’t think Cal would waste his time if the kid appeared dead set on going straight to the pros.
On the court, Bradley has a strong floor presence and willingness to create for others. He is very unselfish and a great passer. However, he has some bulldog in him, and when he gets into attack mode, he can be hard to stop.
No player will challenge the phenom Emoni Bates for the No. 1 spot in the class, but Bradley is definitely turning heads every chance he gets.
This is a guy to be on the lookout for moving forward as this appears to be Coach Cal’s first major target in the class of 2022.
