Bradford was dismissed from the Wildcats due to a recent arrest, according to

Ivan Leonard of The Daily Wildcat reports Bradford was arrested on seven felony charges — three counts of kidnapping and four counts of aggravated assault.

“Earlier today, we were made aware that Orlando Bradford had been arrested,” Rodriguez said in a statement. “As a result of his actions, he has been dismissed from the program.”

Through two games this season, Bradford has totaled five carries for 16 yards while splitting carries with junior Nick Wilson.
