WR Bradley Selects UConn

Connecticut picked up its fourth member of the 2013 class when Eastern Christian Academy (Elkton, Md.) receiver Dhameer Bradley gave a pledge.

Connecticut helped bolster its receiving corps when it pulled in its second commitment at the position in the 2013 class.

Dhameer Bradley, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound speedster from Eastern Christian Academy (Elkton, Md.) on Thursday afternoon. He joins St. Luke's School (New Canaan, Conn.) prospect Noel Thomas as receiver commits in the class.

"Dhameer is an extremely explosive and fast individual," ECA coach Dwayne Thomas said. "He may be the fastest kid I've got, and I've got a couple of them that run in the low 4.4s. He's explosive, he can catch the ball and he's fast."

Bradley is one of a contingent of players who left Red Lion Christian Academy (Bear, Del.) in January for ECA. As a junior, he made 46 catches for 885 yards and nine touchdowns.

Bradley also had offers from Temple and Hawaii, and a number of other schools, including UCLA were showing interest.

"He'd bee n talking to me about it for a couple of days," Thomas said. "I had a couple of coaches call me after the commitment and say ‘Why did he commit?' There was something Dhameeer and (receivers) coach (Matt) Cersosimo connected with, and they really got along well."

Thomas also is comfortable sending Bradley to play for coach Paul Pasqualoni. The two have known each other for a long time.

"I know there will be no nonsense," Thomas said. "I really agree with their style. Offensively, I think they'll be in four wide and three wide to utilize his skills. His skill is to sit in the slot and create mismatches with safeties."
