LEXINGTON - Highly-rated high school guard Ramel Bradley apparently gave a verbal commitment to sign with the University of Kentucky during his visit to UK last weekend.
Bradley could not be reached for comment Monday, but several sources at Kentucky confirmed that he had told Kentucky coach Tubby Smith that he would sign with the Wildcats next week.
He is ranked as the No. 18 shooting guard in the nation by Rivals.com.
He averaged 20 points, eight rebounds and six assists per game at Park West High School in Brooklyn, N.Y., last season before transferring to the Pendleton School in Florida for his senior season.
Bradley recently made the necessary test score on his college entrance test to be eligible to play as a college freshman.
