It was only a few days ago when I publicly wondered if the Broncos would get their first 2020 commit before May. After all, of late it does seem like April is the month that the recruiting band-aid is ripped off. Well, consider that question answered as the Broncos did indeed kick off the 2020 class inside the confines of the showery month.
Thankfully, the recipient of the inaugural “Go Broncos” tweet decided to make his presence known almost immediately and when he did, it made a whole lot of sense.
Yeah, that’s Isaiah Bradford—a 6’0” 170 lb safety from Redlands East Valley (Derrell Acrey’s alma mater) and the cousin of now-former Boise State and soon-to-be Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison. Way back on tax day when Bradford was offered by the Broncos, he announced that Boise State was his “dream school” and many thought he might be the first to pounce on his offer. Sure enough, he’s on the board and now can get down to the important work of helping get the rest of the 2020 guys in the door. As a junior, Bradford racked up an impressive 102 tackles with 5 of them for loss.
At the time of his commitment, Bradford had offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Sacramento State, San José State, and South Dakota. I’m sure he’ll continue to get offers, honestly...let’s just hope that Boise State’s dream school status and the family ties will keep him bleeding blue.
Oh, and as luck would have it, our pal Mike Wittman over at MWC Connection interviewed Bradford for today’s recruiting article, so be sure to give that a read when you can.
Bradford’s highlight video can be found below and you’ll note that he’s a pretty physical player. We like that ‘round these parts:
