Jaden Bradley is the No. 9 overall recruit in the 2022 class according to the 247 Sports Composite. Sport Illustrated is reporting that he is transferring away from his high school in North Carolina to IMG Academy in Florida.
IMG is a major program for high school stars, and Bradley will join top five recruit Brandon Huntley-Hatfield for his junior season. Huntley-Hatfield is the cousin of former Wildcat Alex Poythress, and he is getting some UK buzz going into his third year of high school basketball.
Perhaps more important than his move to Florida is Bradley’s move away from the state of North Carolina, where Duke and UNC have easy access to the point guard.
If Kentucky is able to land the combination of Bradley and Huntley-Hatfield, both of which they are in hot pursuit of, 2022 could be a special class.

Just so y’all know, 70% of prorated salaries at 72 games is the exact same as...wait for it...full prorated salary at 48. Nothing to see here. Same exact offer in different clothing. Just a reallocation of risk.— Trevor Bauer (@BauerOutage) June 12, 2020
According to star Cincinnati Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer, and many other professional baseball players, the MLB owners are only giving the appearance of compromise in the ongoing negotiations.
The NBA is allowing the final 22 teams to expand their rosters, and that could mean big opportunities for some former Wildcats.
This cannot be a good sign as college athletes return across the country.
As we all assume the roster is set, it looks like UK has finalized jersey numbers for the upcoming season.
What will this mean for the kicking duties for 2020 in Lexington?
Top recruit Jager Burton continues to get high praise and big opportunities.
John Wall continues to set a high bar of philanthropy.
I am absolutely shocked that this was not already a thing.
This does not look good at all.
I realize there is a lot going on, but the state of Kentucky really should look into this.
247 Sports believes Kentucky will finish behind Florida Georgia, and (gulp) Tennessee.
