Along with the AD officially enrolling news, it has been confirmed that MB gave up his scholarship. Cheers to you, Bradley.

See in the blog the confirmation Andre is on the roster, but no official confirmation of MB's role.

First off, tcf15 that is a really cool signature. Do you have the original of that on any site, that would make for a cool wallpaper.

Secondly, glad that Drummond is officially on board. I would assume this means MB would get his scholarship back next year?

Next year is next year. But I'm wondering, can they push the envelope further and keep him on financial aid (assuming that is the route they took this season) next season and have a bb scholarship available next year if Lamb goes pro and they get one back for good APR?

Thanks. I got the photo from the SI Commemorative Edition, and that was as big as I could find. I tried enlarging it for you, but it lost some of it's quality. But here's what I got: http://i.imgur.com/qZFvS.jpg

Does this mean if Bradley stays in good academic standing, he doesn't help with improving our APR?

Very good, I think his parents are also to be thanked.

For the umpteenth time.............did he get a ring (i forgot)?

No idea about the ring. I would imagine yes.

MB had a compelling story before this episode. Absent father. And his mother had addiction problems. Michael tried to get her to seek help, but she was unable to take control of her life. So he went to the authorities for help to remove him from her supervision. That had to be difficult and painful. The put him in an orphanage/foster care. This kid had his act together without parental guidance. You really have to wonder how this kid managed to develop his wisdom.

I think we should declare an official 'Michael Bradley Appreciation Day'

He should be remembered with the same fondness as the 3 NC's and Makers Muppet

It's really a great story about the human spirit so far.

I sure hope he uses his scholarship well and finds it easy to stay on the path. When you see the guys like Crittendon it's really just a shame some have that struggle they can't get behind them until it consumes them

Welcome aboard AD and a big Boneyard thank you to MB for giving up his ship so that the home state hero can join the program.

Bradley is a good dude. And just because he is not on a ship doesn't mean the kid couldn't develop into a good player.
