Kentucky has only offered scholarships to two players in the 2022 class: Emoni Bates and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, both consensus top-five players. But a new offer may be on the way this summer to one of the top point guards in the class, Jaden Bradley.
Bradley spoke to KSR recently and broke down his recruitment and his game. Bradley is ranked in the top 10 by many outlets, and as high as No. 7 overall. The North Carolina native is a five star point guard that describes himself as an unselfish player.
“What separates my game is that I’m a pass-first point guard, I like to get my teammates involved,” Bradley told KSR. “I try doing the little things that get unnoticed sometimes like diving on the floor, picking up a teammate, little things that go a long way.”
As always, there are a lot of rumors about high school players as far as reclassification and who they may be a package deal with. While Bradley did not say he is definitely going to be playing in college with anyone, he did talk about the possibility of playing with the top combo guard in 2022, Skyy Clark.
As far as reclassification goes, the idea has come up for Bradley, but it is not something he has seriously considered up to this point.
Joel Justus is the primary recruiter for Bradley, and has been in regular contact with Bradley’s father (he cannot be called or texted at this point due to NCAA regulations) and a good relationship is forming. Bradley also attended the Blue-White game on an unofficial visit and had great things to say about the experience.
“Oh, man. It’s a great feeling,” Bradley said. “Family atmosphere. It was unbelievable, even the Blue and White scrimmage felt like a real game. No one was going through the motions, they were competing and going at guys, trying to get each other better and get ready for the season. I like what Coach Cal does with his guys in trying to get them ready for the next level.”
Bradley has recently received offers from Louisville, Kansas, and North Carolina, and almost everyone expects than an offer from John Calipari is on the way. Bradley is certainly a great players and seems like an intriguing young man. What is the one hobby he loves that nobody knows about?
