Lancaster, Texas four-star running back Kevontre (Tre) Bradford, who has over 28 listed offers, committed to play for the national champion LSU Tigers after a visit this weekend.
By DT Yates
With the commit, the Tigers received one of the top backs in the nation’s 2020 recruiting class. He’s also one of the faster backs, winning a Dallas areas All-Area Track and Field Newcomer of the Year award.
The 5-11, 193-pound Texas native ran for over 9.3 yards per carry with 1,563 yards rushing and 23 TDs. He can be a dangerous threat receiving where he averaged over 20 yards per catch with three scores due to his ability to extend a field. He has capable hands as shown in the clip 45 seconds in the video below where he motions into a seam route for a 55-yard touchdown catch.
Bradford’s top offers other than LSU included Texas, Ohio State, Texas Tech, Southern Cal, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Florida State and Wisconsin. Bradford is rated 4-stars on both Rivals.com and 247Sports.com.
Bradford played on a talented roster at Lancaster that included three-star receiver LaDarius Fair, an Alcorn State commit. The pair helped their team advance to the Class 5A Division I Region II final where they fell 38-20 to Frisco Lone Star who was led by four-star Oklahoma WR commit Marvin Mims.
Bradford is dangerous when he sees a lane open and quick with his cuts to punish defenders. He can increase 15-20 pounds at the next level. Bradford had impressive cutting ability and vision. He may be an early contributor.
