NBPA Top 100: Tony Bradley

Steady, methodical and certain. Those are the buzzwords one might attach to Florida center Tony Bradley, both as a player and with regard to his recruitment. The talented big man will enter July having completed a successful stint at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, and he’s also making progress sorting through an impressive list of college programs.



When the July live period kicks off in a couple weeks, Tony Bradley will stride onto the floor as the nation’s No. 33 rising senior prospect. Bradley has turned in strong play on the EYBL circuit for Each 1 Teach 1, averaging 12 points and nine rebounds per contest, shooting over 60 percent from the field.

The solidly built center possesses big, outstanding hands that he utilizes to corral rebounds, score at close range and make difficult catches in traffic. He’s also a fine interior passer who can maintain circulation in an offense from the high post.

Bradley’s lack of straight-up leaping ability at times can affect his ability to score, but as he continues to fill out and gain experience, he’ll learn to put his body to maximum advantage in order to create angles and space.

He’s also focused on developing college-level stamina and a fully polished scoring package.

”Lately, I’ve just been trying to get better conditioning, so I can beat other bigs for easy layups,” Bradley said. “(Also) ballhandling, shooting, hooks over my left and right shoulder, just being more versatile.”

Bradley’s production and potential have attracted an onslaught of major college coaches. He boasts heavy interest from regional high-majors as well as looks from outside his area as well.

North Carolina, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Kansas, there’s more,” he said. “I don’t know when I’m going to cut my list.”

Bradley took his official visit to UNC earlier his year but has four more trips remaining, should he choose to take them this fall.
