Five-star Chandavian Bradley plans to visit Tennessee next week, the talented pass rusher announced on Twitter Wednesday night.
Tennessee offered Bradley in February and have made him a priority sense. The May visit will be Bradley’s first ever to Knoxville and is a major step forward in Tennessee’s recruitment of the five-star.
Bradley ranks a the No. 29 player in the class of 2023 and the No. 4 edge rusher according to the 247sports composite rankings. The two-sport star is the top-player in the state of Missouri, playing his prep football at Platte County High School.
The 6-foot-5, 210 pound pass rusher hasn’t released a top group but has been on a handful of visits since the NCAA lifted its COVID-19 limitations last June. Bradley took two visits to Kansas State during the 2021 football season, a visit to Iowa State during the season and another in January.
The five-star pass rusher visited both Missouri and Texas A&M in April and has an official visit to Texas A&M set up for September.
According to 247sports, Auburn, LSU, USC, Miami, Oregon, Florida State, Washington and South Carolina are also contenders to land the blue-chip recruit.
Josh Heupel and defensive line coach Rodney Garner landing the long pass rusher would be a major coup for the Vols, allowing Tennessee to pair of the five-star with blue-chip recruit Caleb Herring. Herring — a Murfreesboro native — is a top 100 recruit and Tennessee’s second highest rated recruit.
Tennessee’s 2023 recruiting class is the nation’s seventh best according to 247sports and the fourth best according to On3.
