Arizona football recruiting: Orlando Bradford aims to break Ka'Deem Carey's records

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Arizona has received a commitment from 2015 running back Orlando Bradford and safety Anthony Mariscal.

Here's something that'll make you chuckle. Three-star running back recruit Orlando Bradford from Calgary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, La., committed to Rich Rodriguez and the Arizona football program on Tuesday, but it's what he told the Shreveport Times' Matt Vines that elicits a little laugh.

"I want to do better than (Ka'Deem Carey). I think we do have the same style," said Bradford, who is a rushing and receiving threat out of the backfield. "I felt like it was about time to commit ... and I really had good chemistry with the coaches. I want to focus on school and (my senior year) and not have to worry about that (my college choice)."

Those are big words, but Arizona fans surely wouldn't complain if Bradford proves us wrong. Carey, if you don't remember, rushed for 5,483 career yards.

Bradford is apparently a similar player to Carey at 5'9 and 195 pounds, and is a threat in both the passing and running game. He had offers from Utah and Tennessee, among others, and he's the 12th commit for the Wildcats in the 2015 class.

Arizona also added 3-star defensive back Anthony Mariscal on Tuesday.

Rodriguez and the Wildcats are hot on the trail of 6'4, 330 pound defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie out of De La Salle High School. One of the best overall players in the country for the 2015 class -- he's 10th by 247 and 35th in composite rankings -- it appears that UA is right behind Tennessee in the lead for his services.
