Bradford's stock rising

Louisiana running back Orlando Bradford is starting to see his recruitment pick up. Read on for his thoughts on his Arizona offer and more.

Shreveport (La.) Calvary Academy 2015 running back Orlando Bradford is one of the more explosive play makers in the country and this last season showed the impact he can have on a football game.

"Our season had a lot of ups and downs, but we came out ahead because we won state and when you think about the fact that we started out the season 0-4 it was a big deal," Bradford said."

Bradford played his best on the biggest stage.

"I played really well in the state title game," he said. "I went on to have 298 total yards and a bunch of touchdowns."

Making that game all the more gratifying, Bradford was able to silence some critics.

"I hurt my foot awhile back and a lot of people were wondering if I could continue to get better and I think I showed what I could to of a lot of people," he said.

Arizona coach Calvin Magee was just one of the coaches that came away impressed.

"He just offered me and I could tell they really liked what they saw," Bradford said. "He said they liked how when I came up on a tackler that I kept using my feet to get yards and they think I have a knack for the big play."

Tennessee is the only other school to offer Bradford, but that figures to change soon.

"LSU is watching me," Bradford said. "I will check them out soon and just see where everything goes from there."

While Bradford will make time to check out different schools, he is all-in on track right now.

"I want to get to be the fastest player I can become and that is why I'm training hard in track," he said. "Both these sports go together and I want to take my game to another level and hopefully this well help me do that."
