Bradley has just accepted a preferred walk-on offer to play Center at Auburn. It is not often that a guy who has started at a 7A Alabama High School since he was a 10th grader takes a PWO offer.
There are some things about Bradley that lead me to believe with more exposure, he would have gotten more attention from bigger schools. I love his athleticism; Auburn HS likes to run multiple screens and pulls lineman often—including the center. Whenever Bradley was asked to do this, he was always under control and athletic enough to motor down and square up defenders in open space.
Bradley has good size but not great length. At times he is unable to gain control of defenders who have more length than him. He makes up for this with great feet: the feet are always pumping, especially on contact.
According to Auburn High School OL Coach, Will Dake, Auburn is getting a steal. “We had a heck of a season and really thanks to guys like Cort we were able to achieve like we did because of his leadership. You’re talking about a kid on the OL who was a 3 year starter and 2 time captain voted on by his teammates.”
Coach Dake also made it very clear that Bradley is cerebral player on the OL. “Real student of the game. He was the QB of the OL. Could tell us fronts, stunts, blitzes, etc. from alignment and positioning. Definitely a Harsin guy in my opinion.”
