Three-star athlete Ahmad Bradshaw from Bluefield (Va.) Graham was one of many high school stars in the stands Saturday when Virginia hosted Florida State in a hard fought battle. The Rivals.com No. 7 all-purpose back and No. 50 prospect in the Atlantic East Amazing 80 was also one of many that had a very good experience.
“I had a blast,” he commented. “It was a very good game.” Although originally slated to be an official trip, it was downgraded to unofficial, but he will return on an all-expenses paid trip later this fall.
“It was unofficial,” he explained. “It was supposed to be official, but my parents couldn’t make it. My official visit will probably be the Virginia Tech game (Nov. 28).”
Bradshaw has already taken official visits to Virginia Tech (Aug. 29) and Tennessee (Sept. 5), and said his visit over the weekend, although unofficial, compared favorably to his first two experiences.
“It was probably eightish,” he commented (on a scale of one to ten). “It was real fun. It was about the same as the others, just the game was so much fun. I had a blast watching Virginia play Florida State up close.”
Maryland and West Virginia, along with the three schools he has been to see, remain Bradshaw’s top five schools, and he may travel to West Virginia to see the Mountaineers host Pittsburgh. West Virginia and Virginia have both offered scholarships.
Bradshaw was named to the all-state, all-region, and all-district teams as a junior, and was the Daily Telegraph Player of the Year after recording 2,282 yards on 224 carries with 27 touchdowns. He also added 36 receptions for 390 yards and three scores.
