Several college programs have visited Jamestown, Ohio over the past several months to learn more about junior tight end and two-sport standout Ethan Bradds.
One program that has reached out to the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Bradds is Michigan State and Bradds visited the Spartans this past weekend.
“My visit to Michigan State went really well,” said Bradds. “We got there and I spoke with recruiting coach Nick Ruffin. He’s been the coach I’ve been talking with the most and we talked about how my season is going and football in general.
“The recruiting coach for my area is their secondary coach Harlon Barnett. We didn’t get a lot of time to talk as there were several recruits and he was getting ready for the game.”
A high school tight end, Bradds also knows some could look at him as an offensive lineman and that is fine with him.
“My goal is to play college football,” he said. “If a school feels I can help them more as an offensive lineman, that is what I’ll do.”
As for what he saw when watching the Spartans play.
“I really felt Michigan State has the best atmosphere I’ve seen so far,” he said. “The fans were really loud and I was impressed. I really liked the game and liked how on the field they always have a tight end or two on the field. I like their style of offense and play as they go hard and use more of a pro-style offense.”
Bradds has recently visited Ohio University and Purdue with the Boilermakers being the program he’s having the most contact with so far.
