Virginia RB favors four

With all the quarterback talent in Virginia this year it might be easy to overlook some other skill position players. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw is highly interested in four local schools and he has a pair of offers.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound all-purpose back from Bluefield (Va.) Graham runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and is what many would consider a scat back. He has very good quickness and his agility and balance make him difficult to bring down.
"I have offers from Virginia and West Virginia," said Bradshaw. "Those are still my only two for now. Those two along with Virginia Tech and Maryland are my leaders. I don't think any of them really stand out.
"They're all pretty close to home and they were all really good last year. Plus I like that they all get the ball to the running backs a lot, whether it's on running plays or through the air.
"I camped at UVA over the summer and I liked that a lot. I like their coaches and the school is real good. They're recruiting me harder than any other school now, so that's helping them. They have a lot of young running backs, so I think I would play safety there. I won't make my decision until after my senior season ends."
Bradshaw rushed 224 times for 2,282 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior, and also caught 36 passes for 390 yards and three scores. He was named all-state, all-region and all-district and was the Daily Telegraph Player of the Year.
