He's considered a truly elite pass-first point guard, but Jaden Bradley
showed so much more Saturday at the Riverview Activities Center. The 6-foot-3 incoming senior from IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
averaged 22 points, 8.5 rebounds and 7.5 assists in two games, highlighting day five of the Nike EYBL Peach Jam, arguably the country's biggest high school boys basketball showcase.
With hundreds of top college coaches in attendance, Bradley showed why 247Sports ranks him the No. 4 senior point guard in the country. He along with top-ranked junior prospect D.J. Wagner
were among the many who stood out on the second-to-last day of pool play.
Bradley was equally impressive in two games for CP3, going for 21 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in an 86-71 win against top 10 guard Dior Johnson
and Vegas Elite. He followed that up with 23 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in a 68-67 loss to Boo Williams.
Among the Peach Jam leaders over five days, Bradley ranks eighth in scoring at 20.2 points per contest
while dishing out an event best 6.5 assists per game. The versatile guard has his team sitting atop Group B with a 5-1 record. He has 17 college offers but appears to be considering strongly North Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan, Arizona and Alabama.
