4-Star WR Sets Oregon Visit

Mark Bradford, 6-1, 185 pound wide receiver from Los Angeles (Calif.) Fremont is one of the players affected by the recent firing of head coach Bobby Williams at Michigan State. Bradford had an official visit set up but that has been put on hold for the time being.

"I was supposed to visit there January 17," Bradford said in regards to Michigan State. "I'm still interested in them but I haven't heard from anyone at the school since it happened. Right now, I have a trip set up with LSU (Nov 15), Washington State (Nov 30), Oregon (Jan. 10) and Notre Dame (Jan. 24).

"For the last visit, I'm looking at Washington, Arizona State and Stanford. I like USC and UCLA too and both want me to take an official visit but I don't know if I want to waste one there because they're both so close and I've been to both schools several times already."

Bradford is still recovering from a sprained ankle he suffered early in the season and is not yet 100%.

"I haven't gotten my explosiveness back yet," Bradford said. "I'm trying to get better but it's been hampering me a little. Hopefully I'll be back to 100% by the time the playoffs roll around."

Bradford said every week, he has a new school at the top of his list.

"It's not that I change my mind a lot, I just envision myself at a new school all the time," Bradford said. "Right now, I'm trying to focus more on our season than on recruiting but as soon as our season is over, I'll put 100% focus on recruiting.

"Right now, I don't have a leader but my top two would probably be LSU and Notre Dame and USC is right behind. Ask me next week and it could be a different set of schools. I'm just looking for a school where I'll fit in well, have a good shot at playing early and where I get that special feeling. I can't describe it but I think when I know the school is right for me, I'll get that feeling inside that this is where I'm supposed to be."

Academically, Bradford is carrying a 3.4 GPA and scored a 960 on the SAT. He hasn't sent in his application to Stanford yet but did retake the SAT this past Saturday showing that he does have a definite interest in the Cardinal.
