Offensive lineman Connor Bradford (6-5, 270, 5.1) from Palmdale, Calif., has long been a UCLA commit, but has he had second thoughts about his commitment? The sleeper offensive lineman is still being recruited by several teams but one team in particular could be gaining on the Bruins.
"UCLA still leads, but I'm keeping my options open," Bradford said. "Coach Williams (Palmdale head coach) told me that Cal would like me to contact them.
"I called Cal, but I haven't been able to speak to them yet. Cal is the biggest threat to UCLA.
"I really liked Cal a lot when I was down there," Bradford said. "I liked Memorial Stadium and Cal's surroundings. I also like Cal's offensive line coach (Jim Michalczik).
Michalczik is also Cal's offensive coordinator.
Bradford took an unofficial visit to Cal in the early summer. Though he's still a UCLA pledge, Cal has a definite opportunity here to end up with the talented sleeper from Palmdale.
The scouting report on Bradford is he has that lanky frame that D-I schools like because there is room to fill out without losing any of the desired quickness so coveted by D-I schools.
Whoever lands Bradford in the end will be getting a player with a huge upside.
Besides UCLA and Cal, Bradford has offers from San Diego State, Utah, and Nevada.
Bradford earned first-team all-league honors and was selected his team's most improved offensive player for his junior season performance.
In the weight room, Bradford's current bench press 260, he squats 360 and an very impressive 250-pound power clean.
Bradford is a full qualifier who carries a 3.0 GPA and a 1350 SAT.
