Class of 2016 Huntington Prep (W.V.) forward Miles Bridges has set dates for official visits to three of his five finalists, according to a report from

Bridges will visit Indiana on Aug. 28-30, Michigan State on September 12 and Kentucky on October 16. Trips to Michigan and North Carolina are still in the works, according to the report.

Class of 2016 Huntington Prep guard Curtis Jones is also expected in Bloomington the same weekend.

Last week at the Nike Global Challenge in Chicago, the No. 18 player in the 247Composite broke down each of his finalists in an interview with Inside the Hall:

Michigan – “It’s just a great program. I think I fit in well with them because they run and coach (John) Beilein lets them play. And the most important thing is development because they’re taking unranked players and making them into pros.”

Michigan State – “They’ve been recruiting me forever and I’m real comfortable with the staff. (Tom) Izzo, (Dwayne) Stephens, I talk to them all of the time. My mom, she’s real comfortable with them, too.”

Kentucky – “They just put people in the league. Me and coach (John) Calipari, we’ve gotten close.”

North Carolina – “They’re new. They offered me two days ago and I’ve been talking to coach Roy (Williams). I like their offense.”

Indiana – “Their (player) development is good, I like their coaching staff and it’s just a great basketball school.”

As a junior at Huntington Prep, Bridges averaged 15.7 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.8 blocks and 2.3 steals per game.

    He names all of the other coaches except Crean. That to me is weird. Beilein, Izzo, Cal and Williams.

    I think your over analyzing Bridge’s comments. One doesn’t even know the full context of the question and comment. Say the question was how do you feel about IU and Coach Crean. There would be no need to state CTC’s name.

  • I think this type of thinking is called the “paranoid style,” and is akin to conspiratorial theorizing.

    He didn’t name you either…

    It’d be more weird if he mentioned me and not Crean.

    Bridges visiting the same weekend as pg Curtis Jones. Wonder how much pull TB has on these Huntington Prep players?

    It seems the school receives the first official visit would always have advantage. And players tend to arrange visits based on their preference. I hope the Hoosier Nation give the kid some love when he’s here. He could commit onsite, just sayin’.

    This was an interview for ITH. Maybe he didn’t feel the need to mention CTC by name, but he does mention the whole coaching staff.
