Recruiting: Maryland S Ethan Bradshaw announces Army July 4th commitment

Building strong connections with college football program’s coaches was high on Ethan Bradshaw’s recruiting list.

Bradshaw couldn’t have asked for more in communication from Army’s staff. The connections played a pivotal role in the Decatur (Md.) safety announcing his July Fourth commitment to Army.

“The coaching staff took time to make a genuine relationship with me,” said Bradshaw, who was also offered by Air Force. “As a whole staff, Army reached out to get to know me more often (than Air Force).

“The elite education and the FBS-level football program led me to my decision. The unbelievable atmosphere drove me as well.”

Bradshaw is one of seven commits and counting to announce their patriotic commitment on the Fourth of July. He committed to Army wide receivers coach Aaron Smith June 29. Bradshaw, who has made three visits to West Point, earned underclassmen overall MVP and underclassmen offensive MVP at Army’s 2023 camp. He helped Decatur to a 14-0 state championship season as a junior.

Initially, Army is recruiting Bradshaw to play safety and potentially wide receiver. Versatility is one of Bradshaw’s strengths. Bradshaw has played wide receiver, slot receiver, outside linebacker, safety and nickel back for Decatur.

“I bring energy and physicality to the field,” said Bradshaw, who is 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds.

Where he plays and the location was also an important factor in his commitment.

“Being in New York, my mom (Yolanda Stump) can see me play more often,” Bradshaw said. “She is the my biggest supporter on and off the field.”
