Five-star guard Jaden Bradley is committing to Alabama's 2022 class, according to ESPN's Paul Biancardi and Jeff Borzello.

Bradley is the No. 8 recruit on the ESPN 100 and the top high school point guard in the country.

Kentucky, Florida State, Arizona, and Gonzaga were also on his final shortlist in August.

Bradley, a native of Rochester, New York, says he selected the Crimson Tide because of his connection with Alabama head coach Nate Oats and his staff.

"Coach Oats is a relatable guy and has been invested in helping his players get to the next level," Bradley told Borzello and Biancardi. "He is a fun guy to be around, but when practice starts, he has that switch to change his focus.

"They have a great staff. All the coaches took the time to get to know me and my family. That was important. It is a family culture there. It will be like another home for me."

The 6-foot-2 ball-handler, who's currently enrolled at IMG Academy, is the first player to commit to the Crimson Tide for 2022.
