Five-star point guard Jaden Bradley landed a scholarship offer from North Carolina on Tuesday night.

Bradley — a 6-foot-3 prospect from Rochester, N.Y. — moved to the Charlotte area a few years ago and was named North Carolina’s state player of the year earlier this month despite being only a sophomore. Bradley is the No. 1 point guard and No. 8 overall recruit in the class of 2022, according to Rivals.com.

UNC joins Kansas as the second blue-blood program to extend Bradley a scholarship offer in the past few days. He’s also a major Kentucky recruiting target. The Wildcats hosted Bradley for an unofficial visit last fall, and Cannon (N.C.) head coach Che Roth told the Herald-Leader earlier this month that UK has been recruiting him hard.

UK, Duke and North Carolina have not yet extended scholarship offers to Bradley, though he’s expected to have his pick of colleges as his career progresses. Auburn, Florida and Tennessee are among the many schools that have already offered him.

Auburn will be hosting a few prominent basketball recruits for Saturday’s home game against Kentucky, including at least a couple of young prospects with UK ties.

Class of 2022 point guards Jaden Bradley and Scoot Henderson are both expected to be in attendance for Saturday’s game, according to Rivals.com analysts Corey Evans and Dan McDonald.

Both players have emerged as early Kentucky recruiting targets in the 2022 class. Bradley — a 6-foot-3 point guard from Charlotte — has already attended a UK home game this season and is one of the Cats’ top early targets in that class. Henderson — a 6-2 point guard from Marietta, Ga. — got a visit from Kentucky assistant coach Joel Justus earlier this season.

Kentucky is expected to host a trio of young basketball recruits for Friday night’s Blue-White scrimmage at Rupp Arena, and a UK assistant coach was in Cincinnati on Friday morning to meet with another star prospect.

The Herald-Leader reported earlier this week that five-star point guard Jaden Bradley will be at the Blue-White game. He’s the No. 1 point guard in the 2022 class. UK will also host four-star center Shawn Phillips and Huntington Prep shooting guard Kok Yat — both 2022 recruits — for Friday night’s scrimmage. Phillips is the No. 39 player in the 2022 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
