Bradley, a preseason second team All-American, is one of the headliners out of a strong Mississippi prep class. While the other top position player prospect in the state, shortstop Ti'Quan Forbes, is a toolsy athlete, Bradley will be carried by his lefthanded bat, likely from the bottom of the defensive spectrum. He has the potential to become one of the better prep hitters, with a combination of hit and power, in the class and he hit well on the showcase circuit. Bradley, who has above-average bat speed and a compact stroke, will likely develop at least an average hit tool, and those who like him believe it could be better than that. He has plus raw power that has a chance to play in game action. Bradley has a very strong, physical 6-foot-1, 231-pound build with a powerful lower half.
