Bradley widens favorites

Mukilteo (Wash.) Kamiak athlete Derrick Bradley isn't too concerned about job security. After all, he's expected to be one of the leaders of the Knights this fall. However, he's not taking anything for granted, as he knows coach Dan Mack isn't afraid to open up position battles to stir up a little competition. Bradley is also looking to stir things up a bit in the recruiting arena, as he's gone from a Northwest shoe-in to taking a possible look down south.

"Coach Mack tells us that anybody can play, but I figure that if I go and work hard everything will be alright," the 5-9, 175-pound Bradley told Kamiak will be leaving Monday to go north to participate in their week-long camp.

He's been working hard this offseason to make sure his senior year is a success, and colleges have been diligent as well in making sure Derrick knows how they feel about him. "I got hand-written letters from all the coaches at Washington State, all 12 of them," Bradley said. "They put them in an envelope and sent them all at once. That was kind of cool. I might try and catch their game in Seattle against Nevada."

His current offers are from Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Idaho, but one other school has slid into the picture. "I think I'm going to take trips to UCLA, Oregon and Washington State," he said. "Maybe a couple of others...I'm not sure yet." He explains that he probably won't take a trip to the home school because he's already very familar with Washington. "I wanted to go see a practice this fall but I think they are already done with their two-a-days."

Derrick continues to maintain that he's wide open and won't make a decision until after he takes his official trips. Top Stories
