NCAA Basketball’s November early signing period offers high school ballers the opportunity to get their commitment out of the way just in time to focus on their senior seasons. On the first day of the early signing period, four Bradley Beal Elite alums took that opportunity.
Brandon Miller, Nick Kramer, Kelly Thames and Connor Turnbull signed on the dotted line to play their collegiate ball across the country.
For Brandon Miller, the cat was out of the bag last week when he announced his official commitment to The University of Alabama http://www.bradleybealelite.com/2021/11/02/brandon-miller-commits-to-alabama/. All that was left was to sign on the dotted line, which he did.

For Connor, the allure of one of college basketball’s most recent big time programs pulled him over to Indiana, where he’ll play with the Butler Bulldogs.
