Collierville (Tenn.) rising senior Hunter Bradley made a return trip to Mississippi State this summer for another round of Bulldog camps. And last week, the 6-foot-4 and 240-pound tight end left a solid impression on the MSU coaching staff.
"It went great," said Bradley, who said he had over 20 catches last year. "They invited me back for their Big Dawg Camp on July 22nd and that was good to hear. The coaches told me they really liked me and said I was pretty versatile. They said they loved my talent and just want to see me again at camp in July. They told me they want to sign two tight ends this year. They want to sign one attached tight end on the line of scrimmage and one unattached tight end. And they said I was one of the tops on their board of attached tight ends."
Bradley has also toured other camps this summer and like at MSU, he has grabbed the attention of on-looking coaches.
"I have been to camps at Ole Miss, Memphis and Middle Tennessee State, too," Bradley said. "Ole Miss said they really liked me and I did well there. I have an offer from Murray State and MTSU said they were pretty much gonna offer me this summer. I am also getting interest from Cincinnati and Ole Miss along with Mississippi State."
With his camp opportunities, Bradley said he was looking to improve his overall game.
"I've worked on my speed some and I ran a 4.7 at Mississippi State," said Bradley. "I am also just trying to work on going down to the slot position and being a solid receiver. I did well catching the ball at Mississippi State, too."
And of the schools showing him interest, Bradley said the Bulldogs were the program sticking out to him.
"I would say Mississippi State is my favorite," said Bradley. "I just like everything about them. It was real cool at their camp and they are definitely at the top of my list. I went to camp there last year, too, and I just like all their coaches and their facilities."
