There is no doubting that five-star shooting guard Avery Bradley is excited about his fellow teammate and five-star Abdul Gaddy's desire to play with him in college, but it is not a certainty that the two will actually play together.
"It's a good thing and it makes me happy that Abdul thought about playing with me in college," said Bradley, who plays with Gaddy both at Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep and with the Northwest Panthers travel squad. "That's not the reason he left Arizona, but it gives us a chance to play together. We've decided that if we go to school together that is great, but if not, that's okay."
There still is the chance, however, that the duo could play together at Arizona. The Wildcats are still the team to beat for Gaddy according to his travel team coach Garry Ward, and Arizona is also on Bradley's school list.
Nonetheless, there are differences between the two prospects' lists.
Bradley is considering offers from USC, UCLA, Arizona, Texas, Memphis, Kansas, Florida and Wake Forest.
Gaddy, on the other hand, does not have Florida, UCLA and Wake Forest on his list and has Oregon, Washington and Gonzaga on his list which are schools that are not on Bradley's list.
So what are the schools the two have in common? They are Arizona, Kansas, Memphis, Texas and USC.
Bradley, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound shooting guard, is the No. 17 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Gaddy is a 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard ranked No. 14 in the Rivals150.
