Tony Bradley commits to North Carolina

Tony Bradley is off the board and headed to North Carolina, giving the Tar Heels their first pledge in 2016.

Four-star center Tony Bradley announced that he committed to North Carolina on Wednesday.

Bradley, a 6-foot-9 big man out of Bartow (Fla.) Senior, picked the Tar Heels over high major interest from virtually every school in the south. Bradley took an official visit to North Carolina in the spring. It was the only official that he took.

A talented center, Bradley ranks as the No. 31 overall prospect and the No. 5 center in the 2016 recruiting class.

Bradley is a very good area rebounder and through five games at the Nike Peach Jam, he averaged eight boards a game, to go with 14.2 points on 71-percent shooting from the field.

With the pledge, North Carolina moves into the 2016 class rankings at No. 18. Bradley is UNC's first commitment of the 2016 class.
