NORFOLK – A member of the Northeast Community College men’s basketball team has signed with an NCAA Division I university.

Jalen Bradley, a 6’ 1” sophomore guard from Norfolk, signed a letter of intent Wednesday to play at Oral Roberts University (ORU) in Tulsa, OK.

“We are extremely excited about Jalen joining our basketball program. We believe he will make an immediate impact in our program because of his understanding of the game and his ability to score and create for others,” said Scott Sutton, ORU head coach. “We are looking for high character young men who want to get better on the court and in the classroom.  We believe Jalen wants to do both of those things, and we are excited to get him down here this summer and go to work.”

Bradley said he is excited to continue his journey at the Division I level.

“During the recruiting process, I had a good relationship with the coaches at Oral Roberts and I felt comfortable with them. They emphasized how I would fit in to what they are trying to do in moving the program forward. I’m thankful for everyone who has helped me get to this point, especially my coaches here at Northeast. I’m just happy I’m going to have the opportunity to play for two more years.”

During his time with this season’s 25-7 Hawks, Bradley averaged 17.3 points per game and made 83 three-point shots while shooting 43-percent from that range. He had an 83.7-percent free throw percentage.

Bradley earned top honors during the 2014-15 season. He was named to the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference (ICCAC) Division I First Team. Bradley also earned ICCAC Player of the Week honors after scoring 42 points in 134-128 overtime win over previously #9th ranked Indian Hills Community College, and 23 points in a 84-77 victory over Marshalltown Community College within days of one another in late January.

Dan Anderson, Northeast head coach said, “We are extremely proud of what Jalen accomplished this year. He is a product of a relentless work ethic and it showed the minute we got him back to campus. Jalen has helped raise the bar for our program in moving forward.  We are excited to see him move on to Oral Roberts and help their program.”

Oral Roberts University is a member of the Summit League.
