An Adelaide, Australia native, Craddock played four sports in high school. And he was the top Aussie kicking prospect in the 2012 class by Chris Sailer Kicking.
Here’s the CSK scouting report:
"Brad is a natural talent. He has a huge leg and shows the ability to kick and punt at the highest level. In comparing him to the 2012 talent in the United States, Brad would rank as one of the top 5 in the nation as a combo player. Hit several punts in the 50+ range with 4.8-5.1 second hang time. With minimal instruction was able to hit a kickoff 74 yards with 4.28 hang time. A bit raw, but shows incredible potential. Should be considered a D1A Scholarship Pick!"
Craddock learned how to punt while playing Australian Rules Football. NFL teams like the Jets and Cardinals have used Aussie-style punters. And so have college teams – Memphis’s Tom Hornsey and LSU’s all-American Brad Wing.
Maryland’s special team unit returns senior place-kicker Nick Ferrara, who also doubled as a punter in 2011. Ferrara went 12-20 on field goals and 27-28 on extra points and punted 57 times for a 39.5-yard average coming off of an injury last season.
Sophomore Michael Tart punted three times last season.
For the past year and a half Craddock has trained at OzPunt, an Australian kicking, punting and holding academy. Former Kansas City Chiefs kicker Louie Aguiar has also trained with Craddock.
