Texas Tech Pledges Jerand Bradley to Pass from TAPPS State Finalist John Paul II to UIL DeSoto Powerhouse


A Dallas-area power plant added one of Texas’ first wide receivers.

Texas Tech four-star promise Jerand Bradley said Monday he left Plano John Paul II for DeSoto for his final year. The All-State first-team selection recorded 96 receptions for 1,522 yards and 21 touchdowns last season for a 10-4 private school team that was the TAPPS Division I state finalist.

Bradley (6-5, 190) is ranked third best wide receiver and 19th best overall rookie in the SportsDayHS Top 50 for the 2021 class. DeSoto, who won the UIL Class 6A Division II state title in 2016, now has five top 40 rookies in the region with Bradley, defensive linemen Shemar Turner (No. 12) and Byron Murphy II (No. 18), cornerback Lathan Adams (No. 35) and wide receiver Jaedon Wilson (No. . 40).

DeSoto have won 82% of their games in the past 11 seasons, posting a record 119-26. DeSoto averaged 42.3 points per game in a 9-3 season in 2019, and Illinois promise Samari Collier returns to quarterback after throwing for 2,641 yards and 33 touchdowns. Wilson, engaged in Arkansas, caught 28 passes for 523 yards and seven touchdowns.
