Wallingford (Pa.) Strath Haven running back Jared Bradley holds a lone offer from Boston College and currently has the Eagles leading for his services. What does the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder like about them?
"Boston College is my favorite because I like the campus, atmosphere and coaches," he said. "I talk to coach Jason Swepson the most from their staff and I really like him. I also really like the linebacker coach too, he's really nice."
Other schools showing interest in Bradley include Purdue, Syracuse, West Virginia and Pittsburgh.
"I went to Purdue this summer and I liked it a lot," he said. "They have a good tradition and pretty good coaches. Coach Samuel and I are real close and that's good. They mentioned offering me, but they want to see my first couple games this season."
Over the past month, Bradley has been keeping in touch with a few schools including Boston College, Penn State and Syracuse.
"I email them and call them every once in a while," he said. "I'm just telling them what's going on and they tell me what the school has been doing. They also have been telling me about training camp."
Is the running back prospect starting to consider official visits?
"I haven't really thought about that. There are not a list of schools I want to go to right now," he said. "I probably would not go to Boston College or Purdue though, since I've met the coaches and seen them before. I would probably use all five of my visits to other Big Ten, ACC and Big East schools. I plan to take all my visits after the season so it won't affect my football or anything."
Bradley ran for 1,250 yards and 20 touchdowns, he added 10 tackles and one interception on defense. The prospect was named first team all-Delco and all-central league as a junior.
