Jayden Bradford is one of the top quarterbacks in the newest recruiting class (2024), and recently, the Penn State Nittany Lions received some great news on his recruiting trail. According to the Rivals Network, the Lions are in Bradford’s final three remaining schools that he will choose from when the time comes — additionally, another major source claims that Penn State football is in the top-two remaining schools for this top-5 2024 QB recruit.

According to the Rivals Network, Braford is down to three remaining schools: Penn State, NC State, and South Carolina. These three major programs — which all stem from different Power Five programs — could land themselves a gem with Bradford. Jayden Bradford is a 6-0, 185-pound quarterback prospect from IMG Academic — he originates from Chapin, SC.

According to ESPN, Bradford is a four-star 2024 quarterback and ranks as the No. 37 player in the nation, the No. 4 quarterback in his class, and the No. 9 player in the state of Florida for the 2024 class. Rivals also ranks him among the top 10 quarterbacks in his class and among the top 25 players in Florida.

On3 favors South Carlina and Penn State in Bradford’s top-2

According to the On3 Recruiting Prediction Machine, Jayden Bradford is favored to commit to either South Carolina or Penn State football all said and done. The Gamecocks sit in first place with a 48.9% chance to land him, while the Penn State Nittany Lions are close behind with a 36.5% chance — NC State sits in third with an 11% chance.

Bradford has visited South Carolina seven times, Penn State three times, and NC State three times. Of these three programs, Penn State football is in the best shape overall; however, it’s hard to beat a home town team like USC for Bradford. Still, the Nittany Lions are in the mix and could easily take the lead toward the later stages of Bradford’s commitment.
