Bradley Clifford Leads Utah Class of WRs

An All-State wide receiver/tight end/defensive back recruit from Salt Lake City's Olympus High is keeping all information regarding the school's and scholarship offers he may have received close to the vest.

Bradley Clifford, a 6-4, 204 pound prospect, attained All-State honors despite a conservative offensive scheme featured by his school.

Bradley's father, Chris Clifford, said, "Olympus plays a Wing-T offense, which is very conservative, so making All-State as a receiver was a pretty nice accomplishment."

He said Bradley caught 40-plus balls and had an average of 26.6 yards running after the catch, according to his father. "Brad has very good football speed. He can outrun defensive backs in the open field and is very good breaking away when he catches the ball."

He added his son ran a 4.56 forty with a 36-inch vertical leap, noting Bradley "is still growing and filling out. Brad is a very good receiver right now, but he's still filling out and many coaches have said he could play tight end or possibly safety in college or play receiver."

Clifford has received interest from BYU, Utah, Colorado State, Oregon and other Pac-10 schools. His father said they want to keep offers and what schools are telling Brad private.

His father, however, confirmed that Bradley has a desire to play in-state, but likes Oregon and what they do offensively – as well having a desire to play in a wide-open offense.

Bradley is LDS and has definite mission plans, his father said. He will most likely redshirt one season before leaving on an LDS mission.
