With a thin rosters and nearly a half dozen slots open for the 2018 recruiting class coming into the week, Head Coach Wyking Jones and staff have begun to answer questions in a big way with the second Top 100 commitment in successive days with today's commitment from 2018 Wasatch Academy (Mt. Pleasant, UT) wing Matt Bradley.

The 6-4/205 Bradley's physical style of play and take-no-prisoners attitude on the court fits the style of play that Jones stated the Bears would play under his watch as the new Bears' head man.

The 4 star wing averaged 33.6 points, 10.1 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.7 blocks per game for San Bernardino High School, where he played his first three seasons before his transfer to Wasatch Academy.

Jones has been recruiting Bradley for a while now and after the Bears extended the offer this week, Bradley was quick to jump on it.

It remains a bit of a mystery why a player of Bradley's caliber didn't have more Power 5 offers than he has to date but credit the Bears for jumping in after his big performance for Team Eleate last weekend against some of the top competition in the country in the Magic Memorial Day Festival.

Bradley has the versatility to play and defend either the 2 or 3 and joins yesterday's fellow top 100 commit Jacobi Gordon on the wing for the Bears in 2018.

Bradley is also a quality student, with a 3.5 gpa and recruiting attention from Yale and other Ivy League programs, among others.

With Bradley's commitment, the Bears have a minimum of two additional roster spots for the 2018 recruiting class, with the potential for 1-2 additional slots, depending on how things shake out with their current roster after next season.
