Commit Analysis: 2016 center Tony Bradley

Four-star power forward 6-foot-10 Tony Bradley may not be an elite athlete, but was able to take advantage of positioning and his 7-foot-4 wingspan to be a force inside on the glass for his Bartow team. The UNC commit recognizes the strength of his game is inside and plays to it. Within six feet of the basket, he showed a baby hook, a semblance of a face-up game, and very good hands.
