Jaden Bradley is a five-star point guard and consensus top 10 prospect in the 2022 class, who combines a high basketball IQ with elite scoring and playmaking ability. This season, Bradley is averaging 23 points, eight assists and eight rebounds a game for Cannon School (Concord, N.C.). That production has everyone from North Carolina to Kentucky to Auburn to Wake Forest, among many others, all giving chase. Now, Bradley has agreed to give SI All-American exclusive access into his world by chronicling everything from his road back to recovery to intimate details about his recruitment to his everyday life in a blog.

What’s going on world, it’s Jaden Bradley back with blog No. 2!

Well, like most of you guys I’m at home right now. I’m still trying to get used to it all.

School started back up recently and I’m still adjusting to the new normal right now. It’s a lot different, but I get how serious this all is.

I miss the game, but I think it’s important for everyone to stay safe!

That’s the key.

It’s been a crazy month!

I got an offer from Kansas and an offer from North Carolina; then I won state Player of the Year too.

It’s humbling.

There were a lot of great players here in North Carolina so to win this award just shows me what hard work can get you. It makes me want to work so much harder though.

Coach Roy (Williams) talked to my dad when he made the offer because he can’t talk to me yet. He said he wanted to do it in person, but since we’re all locked down with the pandemic, he went ahead and offered now.

It’s exciting to get the offers from schools like Kansas and North Carolina!

School is online now, and I never thought I’d say I miss school, but I do.

It’s a lot different; you have to focus more for sure.

We have a lot of individual work, so it keeps you responsible and accountable. I can see how this will help me grow up and mature more.

Before this all hit, I went to the Bahamas and had a great time!

I went parasailing and jet skiing and I had a great time in the water and just seeing everything over there.

Then, a couple days after I was out there they ended up getting their first case of COVID-19 so we ended up having a curfew of 8 p.m.

We still had a ball though.

With all my free time, I’m listening to a lot of Meek Mill. I still think he’s the best rapper out right now. I’m listening to Lil Baby’s album and No Cap too.

I would recommend those.

I’m still holding out hope that we’ll be able to get back on the court this summer sometime. I know that this was gonna be a big summer for me so I’m trying to stay ready mentally and physically.

OK, guys thanks again for listening, hope you enjoyed.

Remember stay home and stay safe!
