Bridges says five after him the hardest
Highly touted 2016 wing Miles Bridges told Scout at EYBL Houston this past weekend that five schools are recruiting him the hardest. Bridges, a standout at Huntington (W.V.) Prep, rattled off a list that includdes Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State and North Carolina. What sticks out about each program?Kentucky: “It fits my game really well with the way coach [John] Calipari plays and he gets people to the league so I’ll improve if I go there.” Michigan: “They develop players out of high school that aren’t that good and then they turn them into pros. Just imagine if I went there, they’d develop me.” Michigan State: “I’ve always loved Michigan State. They are 45 minutes away from me. Me and coach [Tom] Izzo have been tight and coach DJ [Stephens], they know my game really well.” Iowa State: “Their game fits me too. Fred Hoiberg’s offense, he knows how to create for small forwards and wings and all that.” North Carolina: “North Carolina’s game fits me too. They like to get down the floor fast. They are a run and gun team and that’s what I like.” Bridges noted that Kentucky and North Carolina are the most recent schools to turn up their attention in him. The No. 7 ranked small forward in the class has taken unofficial visits to each of the schools, except UNC. “I’m going to try and visit either in the summer of in the fall,” Bridges added. Bridges, who ranks as the No. 27 overall prospects in the 2016 class, said he doesn’t have a timetable on making his college choice.
