AUBURN -- Highly touted junior college defensive lineman Ben Bradley from Hutchinson (Kansas) Community College has signed a letter of intent to attend Auburn University, head football coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday. He will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
The 6-3, 315-lb., junior college transfer, rated as a four-star prospect for a number of national recruiting services, recorded 43 tackles, 9.5 TFL and five sacks last season, helping the Hutchinson Blue Dragons to a 9-3 record, a No. 12 national ranking and the Salt City Bowl championship. His Hutchinson teammate offensive tackle Devonte Danzey signed with Auburn last month.
An outstanding run blocker, the talented Bradley is from Norcross, Ga., where he attended Norcross High. A December graduate of Hutchinson, Bradley will begin classes at Auburn when the spring semester commences later this week.
