University of Kansas basketball recruiting


Late Night visitor and Kansas basketball target Davion Bradford has pegged Friday as decision day.

Three days after attending KU’s annual season tipoff event at Allen Fieldhouse, the 7-foot center from St. Louis announced on Twitter that he would announce his college choice at 5 p.m. Friday.

Bradford is a three-star prospect ranked No. 133 overall in the 2020 class by Rivals.com.

As a junior, Bradford attended Mehlville High in St. Louis and played last summer with the MOKAN AAU program. Prior to that, Bradford played for two other high schools, starting at Christian Brothers College High in St. Louis and transferring to Hillcrest Prep in Arizona for his sophomore season.

Today, a little more than a year after his mother died in a car accident, he’s back at Mehlville for the second season in a row and has zeroed in on several area programs for his potential college destination.

Four Rivals.com analysts, including Eric Bossi, logged their picks for Kansas State on Monday. Bradford is also considering Missouri and Kansas.

Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma State and Tulsa also have been involved with Bradford throughout his recruitment.
