Anthony Bradford went viral in the fall when a video of him throwing a 42-yard pass made the rounds on the internet. The visual of a 6-foot-5, 320-pound kid doing that was unusual, but now it is time for Bradford to be known for what he does best, clearing big running lanes for a potent Big Reds offense which he did last season as the team's right tackle.
His strength and size have earned him early college attention and Friday brought a major milestone in his recruitment when the Georgia Bulldogs became the first program to offer him.
"I was glad," Bradford said. "That was my first offer, it's SEC, and going to Muskegon, being a sophomore and still progressing, to get an offer this early is a blessing."
When he told his family about the offer, he said his mom was so excited that he "couldn't get her off me." Bradford has not been to Georgia
"I couldn't talk to them," he said. "But they talked to [Muskegon head coach Shane Fairfield] and he told me what they said. Me and coach Fairfield are planning a trip now to watch a game or a practice."
Bradford has drawn other programs into Muskegon. He said Wisconsin, Penn
"I'm doing one at Wisconsin and that's the only one I know right now."
