Cal Gets No. 25 Jr SF Matt Bradley

Scout’s No. 25 ranked high school junior small forward Matt Bradley has committed to Cal.

 

The 6-5 wing averaged a whopping 31 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals this season for San Bernardino HS (CA).

 

Bradley led the school to the CIF Southern Section semifinals this year and was named to the All-Sun First-Team.

 

“I didn’t need to wait,” Bradley told Scout of choosing the Bears as a junior. “They’re the best school that has offered me. They didn’t play any games. They said they wanted to see me against top competition and then they were ready to give me that offer.”

 

“I can have a big impact with my intensity and toughness,” Bradley added. “Skillwise I can hang and play at that level. What I bring different to the table are my intangibles and toughness.”

 

Rivals’ Corey Evans believes that Bradley is a great signing for Cal.

 

“Strong, tough and wired to compete, Bradley should have the chance to step in and immediately leave his mark on the program,” Evans wrote. “The need for tough, versatile perimeter options that can really defend is always at hand, something that makes Bradley such a quality pick-up heading into the summer months.”

 

For his senior year he will be transferring from to San Bernardino HS to Wasatch Academy boarding school (Utah), which played in the prestigious DICK’s Nationals the past two years.

 

“It’s very international,” Bradley told sbsun.com of Wasatch Academy. “Half the students are from outside the country and it’s one of the most diverse schools in America. I wanted to test my limits. I want to win a Dick’s national championship.”

 

At Cal, Bradley will join fellow 2018 commit, ESPN No. 18 SF Jacobi Gordon.

 

Bears head coach Wyking Jones beat out the likes of Utah, Yale, San Diego State, and Utah State to land Bradley.
