From MLB.com on Bradley

In a strong year for Mississippi high school talent, Bradley's bat could take him into the second round of the Draft. He's a product of Harrison Central High in Gulfport, which has also spawned big leaguers Greg Hibbard and Marcus and Matt Lawton.  Bradley has an extremely advanced bat for a prep player and the power to match. He has a sweet left-handed swing with plenty of bat speed, as well as a willingness to use the entire field. He focuses on making hard contact rather than selling out for home runs, though he still can hit the ball out of any part of any park. Bradley tried catching at the beginning of the season and also has played some third base in the past, but he's destined for first base in college or pro ball. He has enough arm strength but lacks the receiving skills to catch and the range and quickness for the hot corner.
