Bridges enjoyed visit, likes Cards

One of Rick Pitino's main 2016 targets is Miles Bridges.

The Louisville Cardinals put together a big time recruiting class and 2015, and they are looking to follow it up with another strong showing in 2016. One of the key targets for the Cardinals is Miles Bridges.

The 6-foot-6 and 210 pound Bridges is one of the best athletes in the entire class. A native of Flint, Michigan who is now at Huntington (WV) Prep, Bridges is starring for The Family on the Nike EYBL circuit.

“I think I have been playing good,” said Bridges about the start to his spring. “We have good guards who get me the ball in places where I can score, and it has been fun.”

He continued, “I have really been working on my ball handling. I am trying to be able to play not only forward, but guard in college, so I know I have to improve on my handle and my IQ as well.”

Recruiting wise, several schools came out to see Bridges in Hampton, and have been checking in with him in his recruitment.

Michigan State, Michigan, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Kentucky, Louisville, Indiana, and Iowa were all watching me,” listed Bridges.

One of the visits that Bridges took during the school year was to Louisville. On the trip Bridges got to see the facilities and meet with the coaches, and that left a good impression with him.

“The trip to Louisville was a great visit,” said Bridges. “I got to see the arena and meet Coach Pitino. He is obviously a great coach, and he develops players like Terry Rozier, so it was just a great visit.”

While Bridges has already been a major target for numerous schools for a long time, he says right now he is in no hurry to make his commitment.

“I am going to be patient,” said Bridges. “I think I will make my visits in September and just be patient.”

Currently Bridges is viewed as the No. 28 player overall and the No. 7 small forward.
