"I might have not been in my best condition when I showed up, but that stuff was hard. All of the coaches said I was better that what they originally thought. I thought I moved real well. That was the first time I have been timed in the 40, and I ran a 5.6 forty. I weighed in at 341, and I measured right at 6' 8". I have grown another inch since I was last measured."
did the Ole Miss coaches say to Bradley after the camp?
called since the camp. They talked to my coach. They said I did real well. They
did not think I was as good as I was. That was what I was thinking. I was not
sure they knew I was this good. I kind of surprised them."
had a chance to compete against the some of the best defensive linemen around
the Region at the Ole Miss camp; who gave him the most trouble?
no doubt, that would have to be Stanley Porter. He was just so quick off of the
edge. Porter has the best first step out of anybody I have ever gone one on one
Which other o-linemen impressed Sowell?
think Michael Antonescu is getting way over looked. That boy has it all. I am
shocked that no one has offered Michael yet. When he told me he still did not
have any offers, I was like dang, what are these people looking at. That blond
haired center from Alabama (Caleb Thomas). He is the real deal. And of course,
I like Colton Jenkins a lot. He is just so athletic. He probably has more athleticism
than ant of us out there, and that includes myself. Well, that Alex Williams moved
pretty good too. There was a lot of talent out there. I know that."
reported to us the last time we spoke that he planned on taking in some more camps.
I am going to Tennessee in a few minutes (interview was conducted on Friday morning).
We are coming back on Sunday. It is kind of like an unofficial visit. I will go
to camp on Saturday and then come back on Sunday. I do not know if our team will
do any team camps, but if we do, I play WR on the 7 on 7 team. I am telling you,
I can not be stopped on the fade. It is crazy. It reminds me of my playing days
at tight end. I do not know how I can do it so good, but nobody can cover me."
did Bradley choose Tennessee as one of his camp selections?
not know. My boss I work for, his son is going to the camp, so I am catching a
ride. I have always liked watching Tennessee play since I was a kid, and Coach
Matt Luke really wanted me to come up there. We are probably going to go out to
dinner with Coach Luke Saturday night. He is going to show us around. If I do
go up there, they said they are going to offer me."
Does Bradley still
remain solid with Ole Miss?
"Yes, still, for sure. I am trying to
recruit some players to come with me. I really do not want to say who right now,
but trust me, I am being pretty active out there. I think I got a couple of guys
who are ready."
What will Bradley be doing for the remainder of the
"I am working out four days a week, and I am back on the baseball
team. I am just starting to get back in the swing of things."
