"We had a good year, we could have gotten better," he said. "I thought I did well, but I'm hoping for a better season next year."
So who is the running back prospect favoring so far?
"I'd say Michigan, Maryland and Virginia; those are really my top three now," Bradley said. "They've been sending me stuff and I've been to a couple of their camps and really liked it a lot."
Bradley is hoping to get a chance to play early in college as well.
"That may be a factor in my recruitment, but also the coaching staff will play a factor," he said. "If I don't play early, I'd like to be in a good atmosphere to learn from somebody ahead of me."
Bradley also grew up a fan of Michigan and Tennessee, will that play a factor in his recruitment?
"I don't think it would play a factor, but it could a little bit."
So far Bradley has visited Michigan, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Maryland through past football camps.
Currently, the only summer camp scheduled is with Michigan.
