Over the past few weeks, Collierville (Tenn.) High School's Hunter Bradley has enjoyed solid performances at a pair of camps on BCS campuses. The first one was at Mississippi State and the 6-foot-4 and 240-pound tight end did the same at Cincinnati recently.
"I did well at both of those camps," said Bradley. "I did real well at Cincinnati except I slightly pulled my groin. But I am fine now and I am going back to Mississippi State this month for the Big Dawg Camp and then I have a Tennessee camp. That will probably be it for the rest of the summer."
Although Bradley only holds an offer from Murray State, he is drawing serious interest from several Division I programs.
"Mississippi State and Cincinnati are definitely mt top two schools and I have been hearing from others, too, like Tennessee," noted Bradley. "Mississippi State has all but offered me and they are really high on me. Cincinnati is the same way and they say I am high on their list, too. It is kinda nerve wracking to wait around to see what happens but it is also good to get interest from those good programs."
And having another good showing at MSU could help ease those concerns.
"That is what I am looking forward to at Big Dawg Camp," said Bradley. "I want to do well again and show the coaches what I can do. Tennessee also wants to see me in person and see me in camp, too.
"I keep up with the Mississippi State coaches almost every day. They send me hand-written letters and cards. They are recruiting me more as an attached tight end and I am not a spread-out type of tight end. I like to stay on the line and block and catch some passes here and there."
With Bradley anticipating future offers, he added that he won't need much time to decide on his future if those options occur.
"I am just ready to get some offers and then get my decision off my chest," said Bradley. "Once I do start to get offers, I will make a quick decision. I want to have it all planned out and over with before my senior season starts."
