Alabama Signees Jaden Bradley, Brandon Miller Named McDonald’s All-Americans

The Crimson Tide basketball's top-five recruiting class keeps bringing in more accolades.

For the first time since 1981, Alabama basketball has two players from the same recruiting class named McDonald's All-Americans.

On Tuesday afternoon, Crimson Tide 2022 signees Jaden Bradley and Brandon Miller were named McDonald's All-Americans and can participate in the McDonald’s Boys High School All-American game. Only 24 players in the country are given this prestigious honor each year. 

They become the second and third player signed out of high school by Alabama head coach Nate Oats to earn the distinction joining J.D. Davison from 2021. Two other current players on the Alabama roster were also McDonald's All-Americans, transfers Jahvon Quinerly and Nimari Burnett. Collin Sexton (2017), Devonta Pollard (2012), JaMychal Green (2008), Richard Hendrix (2005), Mo Williams (2001) and Gerald Wallace (2000) are the other Crimson Tide players who were named McDonald's All-Americans in high school.

Bradley and Miller are part of Alabama's 2022 class that ranks No. 3 in the country according to Sports Illustrated All-American. Miller, the forward out of Antioch, Tennessee, comes in at No. 11 overall in the SI99 rankings. Bradley, a point guard out of IMG Academy in Florida, is ranked 16th overall in the 2022 class.
