“I really liked Mizzou and their hospitality,” said Bradford. “They accepted me as family and I built relationships with the coaches. What stood out about them was the coaching staff and the conditions.”

Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and Ole Miss State also suggested Bradford.

However, the state of Missouri will be an important factor for him as he continues to recruit.

“I’m considering them because for me it’s a public school, so it’s close to home,” he said.

While visiting games in the fall, Bradford said: “I’m not quite sure yet. I’m willing to visit any school that wants me to be there.”

Bradford is a three-star prospect on 247Sports, ranked 11th among rising juniors in Illinois.
