After a strong finish to the 2015 recruiting cycle, Kent State is back at it again. The Golden Flashes already have a verbal commitment from 3-star DB Tyrece Speaight for the class of 2016. Kent State has its eyes set on some talented prospects across the nation, including quarterback Darius Bradwell.
The recruiting process for Darius Bradwell has started to heat up in recent weeks. The 2016 quarterback from Godby High School in Tallahassee, Florida has picked up two offers so far early on in the process, and several others have shown interest so far. He currently holds offers from Kent State and Southern Miss, while several schools have shown significant interest in him, including more than a handful of Power 5 schools.
Being so early on in the process, Bradwell is in no rush to make his decision. Bradwell mentioned that academically he is on pace to be eligible to enroll early, and will continue to put himself in the best position possible to do so. However, he also mentioned that if he doesn't have to do so, then he won't. In a recent interview with Hustle Belt, Bradwell says he is just enjoying the process for now.
"I’ve been enjoying the ride, it’s been great to talk to coaches, learning about the programs, and how I need to get better and help me reach my dream, which is to play in the NFL. I’m looking for a University with a great environment, and the best position to put me on the field early."
Bradwell may not have the most accurate arm, or the best release, but his athleticism, speed, and his instincts jump out on tape. Bradwell is a playmaker, and because of this he thrives in the spread offense run by his high school.
While currently he has no visits scheduled, Bradwell mentioned multiple times that he had plans to visit several schools, including Kent State in the spring. Check out Bradwell’s highlights, courtesy of Hudl:
