Bridges has big time suitors

Miles Bridges is a role player for Huntington Prep, but one with a ton of upside and he has big time recruiting attention.

Four-star class of 2016 standout Miles Bridges is one of the big attractions for Huntington (WV) Prep. The 6-foot-6 forward is a high level athlete with developing skills, and it is no surprise that some of the top schools in the country are after Bridges.

Last year Bridges was a little under the radar as a freshman before exploding during the spring, but now at Huntington he is in the limelight.

"It is a great experience playing against great competition," said Bridges. "This is a great team and a great coaching staff, it is fun being here."

Bridges continued, "My ball handling and jump shot have gotten better, and then I am also improving on my defense."

Recruiting wise some of the top schools in the country are in consistent contact with him.

"Michigan State, Kansas, Michigan, Indiana a little bit, Providence, and West Virginia are the ones I am hearing from," said Bridges.

Originally hailing from Flint, Michigan, Bridges is very familiar with the Spartans. Michigan State has had tons of success recruiting the area, and they are making Bridges a top priority.

"They just want me to come in for a visit, and they will probably offer me in the summer depending on how my game grows, but they have been on me pretty hard," said Bridges.

Bridges has been in the crosshairs of Tom Izzo and his staff for a while, however he says it is a Big East school that he hears from the most.

"I probably talk to Providence the most," explained Bridges. "They are recruiting me real heavy. They offered me as soon as they saw me practice and they check in to see how I am doing all the time."

Another school that Bridges is familiar with is Michigan, and the Wolverines have been in some contact with him.

"Coach (Bacari) Alexander is telling me that they want me to come down for a visit," said Bridges. "I haven't talked to them a lot, but when I do talk to them that is basically what they say."

Currently Bridges is seen as the No. 24 player in the class of 2016, and he has no intentions to make a quick decision.
