After a long recruiting process the Utah State Basketball coaching staff must be very pleased to have received a verbal agreement from Riley Bradshaw. Riley is widely considered to be the top recruit from the state of Montana for the class of 2012 and has been dominating the basketball scene there for the past three years.
Riley, a 6’2″ guard, will be a senior at Corvallis High School next year and plans to join the Aggies for the 2012-13 season. He will be coming in along-side current Utah high school standouts Marcel Davis and Quincy Bair of American Fork High School. Other 2012-13 commits include 6’9″ PF 220lb Casey Oliverson (Sky View High School, UT) and 6’2″ 165lb G Corey Calvert (Chaparral High School, CO) both of whom are expected to serve LDS missions and officially join the team in the 2014-15 season.
With Marcel Davis coming in to fill the vacated point guard spot it is widely believed that Riley will be used as a combo guard, or exclusively as a shooting guard.
Riley played AAU ball for the Utah Select last year along side current Aggie recruit Tyler Ott which probably gave the Utah State coaching staff a good look at his game.
Here’s a video blog from FiveStarBasketball.com created on May 5th where Riley talks about his commitment to Utah State and plans for AAU ball for this coming year with Idaho Select:
