#First44 Day 24: Mean Green Adds Terriell Bradley
Mitchell Welcomes Sharpshooter from Kansas
Mitchell was named head coach of the North Texas women's basketball team on April 9, 2015. Between moving back to Denton, getting to know the team and beginning to operate the Mean Green program, Mitchell will be very busy early on in her tenure. We want to give fans an in-depth look at her #First44 days on the job in the form of a 44-part series that will run from April 10-May 23.
On Sunday, Jalie Mitchell announced that 5-10 guard Terriell Bradley will transfer to North Texas from Kansas. The Arlington native will sit out the 2015-16 season in accordance with NCAA regulations.
"Terriell is one of the best guards to ever come out of this state," Mitchell said. "She's a student first, and her superior talent is an added bonus. She's an absolute steal for this program and I'm ecstatic about her joining our Mean Green family; it's a new day at North Texas."
After graduating from Mansfield Timberview High School last year, Bradley went to Kansas and played in all 32 games for the Jayhawks, registering at least 11 minutes in every contest. She averaged 6.4 points per game and scored in double-figures six times, including a career-high 21 points at Creighton on December 22. Overall, the freshman shot 40.6-percent from beyond the arc, which led the team.
In the last 14 days, the Mean Green have now confirmed the addition of three transfers, including two from the Big 12 Conference. On April 20, Nekia Jones announced that she would transfer to North Texas after two seasons with the Longhorns; Bradley will now join her and the rest of the team in Denton.
"Terriell is another player who gained excellent experience playing in the Big 12," Mitchell continued. "She's a knockdown shooter who demands attention when she's on the floor. She's able to counter that with her ability to attack and finish or dish to an open teammate."
Coming out of high school, Bradley was given a 95 overall scouting grade by ESPN.com and was ranked No. 56 in the ESPN Top 100. She was ranked No. 6 in the state of Texas, No. 9 regionally and No. 11 nationally at her position. She averaged 16.3 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game and was named District offensive MVP as a senior. She was a three-time all-state selection, as well as a three-time academic all-district honoree.
Bradley was a four-year letterwinner for the Wolves and a McDonald's All-American nominee coming out of high school.
