Unspecified health issues will keep three-star freshman running back Jay Bradford off of Texas A&M’s roster this season. Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin made the announcement to the press yesterday, and Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle was there to cover it.
“The health and well-being of Jay is the only thing that matters,” A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said Monday. “He is still part of our team but just unable to participate in preseason drills. Jay and his family know that they can depend on us through this process.”
A former star at Splendora High School, near Houston, Bradford’s health issues first became public earlier this summer. Whatever he’s dealing with, it’s obviously serious enough to warrant him sitting out this season because when push comes to shove, health always comes first.
Of course, Campus Sports will update this story if any new information becomes available.
