Player Profile: Michael Bradley
It is hard to tell what Michael Bradley will do in his first full season. He has bulked up from his wiry 6-10 and 215 pound frame, and has a better knowledge of what it takes to become successful , but it is impossible to know what he can bring until he gets on the court. The player he most resembles so far is Hilton Armstrong and like Armstrong, Gavin Edwards, and Charles Okwandu, it took a good three years to really mature into an impact player. He’ll get an opportunity because this team is going to need some depth at the center position behind Oriakhi and if he can play solid defense, rebound consistently, and score on second chance opportunities then he’ll get the minutes, but for a red-shirt freshman, it is really a roll of the dice.
