Golden Flash fans have a bright future to look forward to. Amos P. Godby High School senior dual-threat quarterback Darius Bradwell committed to the Golden Flashes on Saturday. Bradwell is rated as a three-star prospect, per 247Sports' composite rankings, and is ranked number 34 among dual-threat quarterbacks in the country. Bradwell also reportedly held offers from Charleston Southern, Georgia Southern, Louisville, Southern Mississippi, Oregon State, and South Florida.

Hustle Belt caught up with the quarterback from Tallahassee to see why he chose the Golden Flashes. "Kent is a nice, small town which I like. And everybody has the common goal to win and I have some team on the team, so it kinda feels like home away from home." Bradwell is referring to fellow 2015 Amos P Godby graduates running back P.J. Simmons and outside linebacker Jim Jones, who both committed to the Golden Flashes' 2015 recruiting class.
"(I want) to be an impact player as soon as I come, and win the MAC, and much more," Bradwell told Hustle Belt. Only Eastern Michigan scored fewer points per game in the MAC than Kent State. Bradwell's elusiveness, speed, and play-making abilities will be looked at to help the Golden Flashes increase their running game. In 2014, Kent State rushed for a MAC-low 81.9 yards per game.
Bradwell is Kent State's third commit of the 2016 class. Bradwell will look to fellow 2016 commit offensive lineman Zach Corrigall to help provide protection for him. The mobile quarterback will be looked at early in his career to step up for the Golden Flashes.
