In just a few months, Jamell Bradley and Dominique Bradley will be suiting up together for the Antonian Apaches for the first time. Up until recently, Dominique was being home schooled, but now the 6'6" twins will be playing on the same team together.
Playing together won't be a foreign concept at all. They already play for the same AAU Organization, the D1 Ambassadors and have continued to make strides.
A few weeks ago, both attended Danny Kaspar's camp on the campus of Texas State and the experience was a good one.
"It was really great. The coaching experience was very well. It was a real good camp. I had a lot of fun. The coaches are very nice and everyone was working really hard. It was very competitive," said Dominique Bradley.
Both of the twins come in at 6'6", while Dominique is definitely heavier, weighing in at 185lbs with more muscle on his frame. Jamell, is also listed at 6'6", but weighing right around 165lbs. Jamell also enjoyed his experience at Texas State.
"I got better, some of the simple stuff, cutting, moving and stuff like that," said Jamell Bradley.
Multiple schools are recruiting the brothers: San Jose State, UTSA, Texas State, Texas A&M Corpus Christi, and TCU have all made contact or reached out in one way or another. Neither report any offers, but continuing to improve on the hardwood will only make that inevitable.
With options coming down the road, Dominique knows what he's looking for in a college program.
"A great education, a good system and great coaches to be around. Coaches that know what they're talking about."
As both are in high gear for the summer before their junior years, another thing they agree on is timing. At this time next year, heading into their senior years, they'd like to be done with recruiting.
Jamell didn't shy away from saying that if the Bobcats continue to show interest, it would be a program that gets his serious attention.
"I would really consider them (Texas State), it's closer to home, closer to my parents, and I really enjoy the state of Texas. It's really where I want to stay. It would be really nice to stay next to my family."
Their father is a legit 6'8", so don't be surprised if either one continues to grow. It's still early to give any final projection, but Dominique could easily grow into a low post, while Jamell could be a hybrid wing. Both are athletic and remain constantly active when on the court. Dominique has shown good flashes when playing with his back to the basket and using his left hand to finish.
