Bracey said he was not expected all the early attention.
"It's been crazy getting all the early attention," said the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Bracey. "It shocked me. I'm just trying stay humble and stay hungry."
That attitude has help fuel him to get better this offseason.
"I've been working on my speed – my 40 (yard dash)," Bracey said. "I've been in the weight room a lot and also been working on my routes."
The Benedictine standout knows more will be asked of him this fall.
"Last year, I was the young guy on the team," he said. "Now that I'm going to be a returning starter, I feel like I have to be a leader. I'm looking forward to it."
Next, Bracey said he was going to try to visit some of the schools that have offered him this summer.
Bracey has high goals for his upcoming season.
"This fall, I want to have over 800 yards receiving and more than 10 touchdowns," said Bracey. "As far as team goals, of course, I want us to win games – and make it to the state championship and win."
Last season, Bracey had 30 receptions for 600 yards and four touchdowns. He also ran for a touchdown.
