Riley Bradshaw got some national publicity from his recent performances in the Adidas Super 64 Tournament in Las Vegas, NV.
In a premium article on Scout.com, recruiting analyst Josh Gershon mentioned Riley along with a handful of big name 2012 recruits.
Josh mentioned that Utah State got a real steal in Bradshaw, who stood out to him in the games he watched, even though he wasn’t initially there to see Riley play. Bradshaw’s crossover was apparently devastating for defenders and he could hit from downtown, get to the hoop, or get past defenders for the mid-range shot.
I can only assume that the writeup was in response to Riley’s 29 point performance against Utah’s “The Factory” team featuring top BYU prospects Nick Emery and TJ Haws.
To give you some perspective of this praise, the other players covered in the article (for those of you who don’t have Scout.com subscriptions) were the following:
Shabazz Muhammad – #1 prospect in the nation
Robert Upshaw – #11 ranked C
Winston Shephard – #14 ranked SF
Xavier Johnson – #16 ranked SF
Prince Ibeh – #21 ranked C
Javan Felix – #23 ranked PG
Joe Rahon – PG (on same AAU team as Muhammad, Upshaw, Shephard, Johnson)
Matthew Willms – C (raw 7-footer from Detroit)
Riley Bradshaw – PG (Utah State commit)
Keep up the good work “Red”!
