Jamestown Greeneview’s Evan Bradds

The name Bradds rings loud and proud in the Buckeye state thanks to
former Ohio State basketball great Gary Bradds. It appears the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Bradds grandson Evan, a junior at Jamestown Greeneview, has been good thus far in the early
AAU period, but this past weekend took his game to a new level. 


Jamestown Greeneview’s Evan Bradds has been good thus far in the early
AAU period, but this past weekend he took his game to a new level.
Bradds helped lead Team CBIZ to the Final Four of the prestigious Bill
Hensley Memorial Run-n-Slam All-Star Classic in Fort Wayne, Indiana by
his outstanding offensive play.

The name Bradds rings loud and proud in the Buckeye state thanks to
former Ohio State basketball great Gary Bradds. It appears the apple
didn’t fall from the tree as Evan is the grandson of Gary.

This Bradds may not be as well known as his famous grandfather, but the
inner basketball circle and most of the MAC schools know what Bradds is
all about. The rest of the state will soon find out.

This past weekend Bradds went from a little known star in Jamestown,
Ohio with a popular grandpa to a kid who had national scouts taking
“serious notice.” He did so by straight “killin it” in CBIZ’s fantastic
run to the Final Four.

Bradds helped CBIZ avenge a King James Shooting Stars Classic loss to
the Michigan Mustangs by scoring 20 points and followed with a 16-point
showing against a sound Spiece Mo-Kan squad.

The junior-to-be turned up his game a couple more notches on Sunday in a
stunning defeat of highly regarded Mac Irvin Fire out of Chicago,
Illinois. The lengthy 6-foot-6 sophomore dropped a game-high 21 points
to help CBIZ reach the Final Four.

In the semifinal contest, CBIZ wasn’t able to overcome a talented
Meanstreets outfit out of Chicago, but Bradds showed well with a
team-high 16.

Bradds has the ability to be a big time shot maker on the perimeter and
shows the toughness to drive the lane and score in the paint. He lacks
strength at this point, but he possesses a terrific long and lean
basketball body. Though, don’t be fooled by his frame he is wiry strong
and if you fall asleep on defense he will dunk on you with his above
average bounce.

“Evan has shot the ball really well this spring behind the arc,” said
CBIZ head coach Brian Bishop. “He has great bounce, but needs to work on
his ball handling. Right now, he has trouble getting by shorter,
quicker guards. He also needs to get a little stronger.”

The Greeneview sophomore currently holds offers from Ohio University,
Akron, Toledo, and Miami (OH), but look for that number to quickly
change.

Bradds averaged 17 points per game this past season earning him Division 3 Honorable Mention All-Ohio.
