LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Yogi Ferrell’s four-year reign as Indiana’s point guard will end at the conclusion of this season and the Hoosier coaching staff is making that position a priority in upcoming recruiting classes.

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 MLive.com.
