COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina head women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley announced that Araion Bradshaw has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. Bradshaw will have four years of eligibility beginning with the 2016-17 academic year.
“It truly is a great day to be a Gamecocks, especially when Araion Bradshaw decided to join our Gamecock family,” Staley said. “She is a point guard who is explosive, cerebrally sound and exhibits incredible court vision. We can’t wait until she’s here assisting with our quest to win a national championship.”
A 5-foot-6 point guard out of Tabor Academy in Hyde Park, Mass., Bradshaw is ranked No. 32 in the class overall and the No. 10 guard in the nation. An athletic, explosive guard, she averaged nearly 12.0 points and is just as disruptive on the defensive end. Bradshaw helped her high school to the finals of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC) Class A Tournament and earned a spot on the All-New England Team.
Bradshaw is the first signee for Staley’s 2015 class.
