Micah Bradford Commits To Valparaiso

Class of 2016 Bradley-Bourbonnais standout Micah Bradford has committed to play his college basketball for head coach Bryce Drew and Valparaiso University.

Bradford, a 6’0 point guard, ranks among the backcourt prospects in the Illinois 2016 recruiting class. Bradford is a highly creative scorer who has the ability to get buckets from all points of the floor. Bradford can also run a team and is effective penetrating the lane, drawing defenders and making decisions.

Bradford’s versatility will play well at Valparaiso, who will get a player who can play both on and off the basketball and has the ability to create his own shot.

Bradford competed on the travel team circuit with Example Sports.

Bradford joins his Bradley-Bourbonnais and Example Sports teammate Zach Hollywood (James Madison) in making a Division I commitment.
