Miles Bridges Says Michigan State, Iowa State and UConn Working Hardest
Miles Bridges says three schools are recruiting him the hardest.
The 6-foot-6 forward from Huntington (W.V.) Prep listed Michigan State, Iowa State and UConn during an interview with Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader.
“They are talking to me almost every day, giving advice” Bridges told SNY.tv of those three schools.
The Flint, MI native is ranked No. 7 in the Class of 2016 by ESPN.com. He holds numerous other offers, including the one he added recently from Louisville.
“It felt good,” he said. “I like Louisville.”
Bridges and Huntington Prep teammates Thomas Bryant and Curtis Jones visited Kentucky for their recent win over Boston University. The 6-10 Bryant picked up a Kentucky offer and is planning an official visit to Kentucky.
“It was a very good environment. I really liked it out there,” Bridges told the Herald-Leader. “The whole arena — it’s like an NBA arena. It’s different from the other colleges. It’s way more advanced.”
Bridges has more visits planned coming up.
“I plan on going to Michigan and Michigan State during Christmas break,” he told SNY.tv. “And possibly Iowa State.”
