    by -

    Five-star edge rusher Chandavian Bradley released his top three college choices Monday morning. The Missouri defensive lineman will play his college ball in the SEC, choosing between Tennessee, Texas A&M and South Carolina.

    Bradley ranks as a five-star and the No. 36 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The long, 6-foot-4, 220 pound defensive end ranks as fifth-best edge rusher in the country and the best player in the state of Missouri.

    The Platte City, Missouri native is a three-sport star at Platte County High School, lettering in football, basketball and track and field.

    More From RTI: Recruits React To Tennessee’s Recruiting Weekend

    Bradley made his first visit to Knoxville during the Vols’ “RockyTopPalooza” recruiting weekend in May and has yet to announce an official visit date to Tennessee. The blue chip recruit has visited both Texas A&M and South Carolina twice in 2022 including official visits to Columbia and College Station the last two weeks. Bradley also took a visit to Kansas this spring and holds offers from over 30 division one schools.

    Tennessee currently has a pair of edge rushers committed in the 2023 class including the Volunteer State’s top player Caleb Herring and Nathan Robinson. The Vols missed out on top 100 recruit Vic Burley but are in the top group for a number of blue chip defensive lineman including Hunter Osborne.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
