At 6-2, 210, Bridges possesses a great first step and isn’t afraid to get physical for the Bulldogs on defense. That attitude along with good speed and quickness has him poised to become another top prospect out of the state next year.
“It feels good to get some early offers,” Bridges said. “I’m looking forward to the process now and seeing what all is going to come. I’m ready to experience it.”
On a team loaded with prospects such as South Carolina signee Quandeski Whitlow and Memphis signees Jared Gentry and Drew Kyser, Bridges had the opportunity to see how the recruiting process works through his friends. That’s something he believes will be important as the schools continue to look his way.
“That helps me a lot,” Bridges said. “It shows me that it’s possible to get it. It motivates me because I’m just ready to sign and get out there myself.”
Also hearing from Ole Miss, Southern Miss and several other schools, Bridges said both Auburn and Alabama are on his list of schools to check out this spring. In particular he’s anxious to make the short trip back to the Plains to see the Tigers and new defensive coordinator Will Muschamp.
“I’m going to visit Auburn most definitely,” Bridges said. “I’m ready to get over there and see how their scheme is. I want to see how well it fits me.”
As a junior Bridges finished with 53 tackles and eight and a half sacks for the Bulldogs.
