NBPA Top 100: Miles Bridges

Miles Bridges excelled at NBPA Top 100 Camp and continues to move ahead in his recruitment.

Five-star forward Miles Bridges has long been one of the elite athletes in the class of 2016. Bridges showed off that athleticism as well as an improved skill level at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. Also he is continuing to move ahead in his recruitment.

“The spring went well. I think I have been playing well,” Bridges explained. “I have been showcasing what I can do and just trying to get better.”

The NBPA Top 100 Camp was big for Bridges. He learned more about the game on and off the court and felt it was a good experience for him.

“I learned a lot of stuff,” said Bridges. “I have learned life stuff that will help me outside of basketball, and then with basketball they have helped me with my shot and my handle and all of that. It has been good to learn from NBA people.”

When it comes to his recruitment, Bridges said, “It’s Michigan State, Michigan, Iowa State, Indiana, Kentucky, UNC, NC State, and Louisville.”

With Bridges being back home in Flint for the summer he has had a chance to check in on the Spartans, and according to Bridges the trip went well.

“Yeah I went there and talked to Tom Izzo,” explained Bridges. “My mom also went over there and we had a good talk with the coaching staff. That is a program I definitely like.”

Another program that has been high on his list is Kentucky, and Bridges likes everything about the school.

“Kentucky is a great program with a great coaching staff,” noted Bridges. “They have a great atmosphere there, and it is just a great program to have an offer from.”

Iowa State was a major factor under the leadership of Fred Hoiberg. Assistant Cornell Mann had built a strong relationship with Bridges, and also point guard Monte Morris and Bridges go way back.

When asked about the current situation with the Cyclones, Bridges said, “I haven’t talked to them yet, but I have talked to Monte Morris and he told me that they would be talking to me. Also I know Coach (Steve) Prohm is a great coach.”

At this point Bridges is focused on the summer and helping The Family in the Peach Jam. After July is when he plans on really visiting schools. Bridges says he intends to take all of his visits before issuing a commitment in the fall.
