Three-star running back Jared Bradley out of Wallingford (Pa.) Strath Haven made his decision yesterday and chose to play his college ball at Delaware. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder with 4.6-second speed picked the Fightin' Blue Hens over an offer from Boston College and interest from schools including Rutgers, Syracuse and others.
"I chose Delaware because I felt like they really needed a running back and I feel I can do a lot for their program. They've told me that I can help take them to the top," he said. "I talked to my coach and I like the idea of going to a school that loves me instead of just likes me."
The future business management major is glad to have a decision behind him.
"It feels really good and there's a lot of pressure taken off," he said. "Now I can focus on getting myself ready to play next year. I'm planning to work on my speed, strength and agility.
Bradley is rated the No. 37 player in Pennsylvania and No. 60 running back in the country.
