A big get at a position of need!

Arguably the best name in TCU’s 2019 class has signed, and Millard “Nook” Bradford is now a Horned Frog!

Bradford was originally a 2018 recruit, but he spent the last year at Fork Union Military Academy. This doesn’t affect his college eligibility, and he’ll still have four years, plus a redshirt year.

Bradford originally held offers from Arizona State, Purdue, TCU, and a few others, before opting to go to Virginia for a year of prep school.

Recently, he picked up significant interest from Virginia and Virginia Tech, but he chose to come back to Texas. In 2018, the 5-10, 180 pound safety rated as the No. 84 safety in the class.

An extra year of maturity under his belt, Bradford plays at a position of need for the Frogs, who lose Niko Small, Ridwan Issahaku, and Markell Simmons at the safety spot this season. With a young core in the secondary, Bradford may be able to contribute right away.

Welcome to the Frog Fam, Nook!
