Arizona coach Tommy Lloyd recently made an in-home visit to one of the top point guards in the 2022 recruiting class, and the meetup with Jaden Bradley apparently went well enough to convince one recruiting expert that he may end up with the Wildcats.
Jerry Meyer, 247Sports’ director of basketball scouting, has entered a Crystal Ball prediction for Arizona to land Bradley, a 5-star prospect who plays for IMG Academy in Florida. Arizona now has two of three Crystal Ball picks for Bradley, with North Carolina getting the other.
The 6-foot-3 Bradley is ranked by 247 as the No. 18 player in the 2022 class, as well as the third-best point guard and the No. 6 prospect from Florida. He made an official visit to Arizona in June at the same time as shooting guard Shaedon Sharpe, the No. 1 player in the 2022 class who ended up committing to Kentucky.
Lloyd and assistant coach Steve Robinson made an in-home visit to Bradley on Sept. 9, posing for a picture with Bradley and his mother after she cooked for the coaches.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you were impressed with my mom’s culinary skills. pic.twitter.com/r6zyV8Inrd— Jaden Bradley (@JBsmoovve) September 9, 2021
Bradley has also made official visits to Alabama, Florida State and Gonzaga, and as of now he has not set a commitment date.
Arizona currently has one commitment for 2022 in 4-star Gilbert center Dylan Anderson, who pledged to the UA shortly after Lloyd was hired in April.
