North Carolina began seriously recruiting Bradley last summer and offered him a scholarship offer in early December. At the time, Bradley said UNC’s tradition and history were among the things that stood about the program
“Just that they’re successful most of the time,” Bradley said. “They know how to win. They find great players for their program. When I think of North Carolina I think of Jordan and how they find great players for their program.”
Roy Williams has made multiple trips to see Bradley, who ranks No. 36 overall in the 2016 by Scout.com, during his junior season. The Tar Heel head coach traveled to see him on Dec. 9 and then again on Jan. 19.
Among the schools that have also offered the 6-foot-10, 230-pound center are Florida, Miami, Central Florida, South Florida, Virginia Tech, Alabama, Texas A&M and Kansas.
This Chapel Hill trip will be Bradley’s first official visit.
Bradley is one of eight players – three of which are post players - in the 2016 class that have scholarship offers. His stock and profile rose after a strong summer on the travel circuit.
"The light bulb has clearly come on for Bradley,” Scout.com’s Brian Snow reported. “He has an impressive 7-4 wingspan, knows how to use his physical tools to his advantage on both ends of the floor. The Florida high school product has great mobility and smooth movements around the basket. He has a knack for going over either shoulder and finishing with a soft touch. Bradley keeps improving at a rapid rate."
