Florida defensive back Scoop Bradshaw will join friend and high school teammate Rex Culpepper as a new member of the Syracuse Orange. Bradshaw's natural position is listed as safety, but there is a chance he could be moved to corner because he is a bit undersized.

Position: Safety, Cornerback
Stats: 6-foot, 175 pounds
Main Recruiter: Bradshaw was brought on board under the Scott Shafer's staff. Dino Babers staff locked him up soon after they were hired at Syracuse. Nick Monroe is the main recruiter in Florida so its likely that he reached out to Bradshaw.
Commitment Date: June 13, 2015

Player Breakdown: Bradshaw has great closing speed when he is going to make a tackle. When he sees a ball carrier he peruses the carrier very quick and fast, usually ending the play off with a good fundamental tackle. He also looks like he can be used in the return game, his quickness allows him to get out in the open field, where he is tough to catch. Bradshaw will need to work on his coverage skills, and his ability to anticipate throws and routes better.
Welcome to Syracuse, Scoop!
