Former Pitt Wide Receiver Reunites With Ex-WR Coach Brennan Marion



Former Pitt wide receiver Jaden Bradley.

Jaden Bradley is heading into a familiar situation with his third college commitment.

Bradley — a 6-foot-3, 195-pound senior wide receiver from Fayetteville, N.C. — spent his first two collegiate seasons at Pitt, his third at Charlotte and his last (or second to last) at UNLV, reuniting with former wide receivers coach Brennan Marion.

Bradley told 247Sports’ Matt Zenitz that he committed to UNLV Tuesday afternoon, following a transfer portal entrance in April.

Bradley initially committed to Pitt as a three-star recruit in the class of 2021, choosing the Panthers over Maryland, Virginia and Wake Forest. He’s from Fayetteville, N.C. but attended DeMatha Catholic in Maryland to finish his prep career.

In two seasons at Pitt, playing just six games during his sophomore season, he recorded 19 receptions for 259 yards (13.6 average) and two touchdowns. He hauled in 10 receptions for 130 yards and two touchdowns in 2022 — both of which came in the second half against Georgia Tech.

Bradley played in six games in 2022 before entering the transfer portal. A source told Pittsburgh Sports Now following the portal entrance that it was a mutual decision.

He played in two games for Charlotte last season, not recording any stats, but since he did not hit the four-game threshold, he will still have two seasons of eligibility remaining at UNLV. The Running Rebels will have to replace starting quarterback Jayden Maiava, but the bulk of an offense that scored 34 points per game is set to return next season.

Marion, who served as the offensive coordinator last season and flirted with bigger openings across the country, will likely put together another strong offense.

Bradley hauled in nine receptions for 129 yards (13 yards per reception) as a true freshman, working with Marion.

Former Pitt running back Vincent Davis put together a strong season at UNLV last season, leading the Rebels with 760 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, and fellow former Panthers wideout Gavin Thomson also spent the season in Las Vegas.

I see our guy V. Davis performed as usual. Pitt/ Cignetti should have neve removed him from the running back rotation. The guy is a great player. You don’t give Davis playing time, but you start Phil Jurcovic?
