With coaches from Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana and North Carolina tracking his every move, Bridges really impressed and proved why he is one of the best in the country (Scout.com)

UNC recruits await end of NCAA investigation

Tony Bradley has spent his summer doing the kinds of things high-level basketball recruits do. A top 25 recruit in the class of 2016, the 6-foot-10 power forward from Bartow, Florida, has crisscrossed the country going to showcase camps and AAU tournaments. He's also been keeping tabs on the slow-moving wheels of NCAA justice. Like the rest of UNC's recruiting targets, he's been awaiting an outcome in the NCAA's investigation into academic fraud at the school. (Fayetteville Observer)

Miles Bridges to Cut List After Peach Jam

Miles Bridges has been one of the most impressive players at the Peach Jam, with coaches like Kentucky’s John Calipari and Michigan State’s Tom Izzo among those regularly watching his games. The Michigan native currently features a list of eight schools — Michigan State, Michigan, Kentucky, Indiana, North Carolina, N.C. State, Iowa State and Louisville — but plans to cut his list after Peach Jam. “Shortly after Peach Jam I will [cut it] down to a top five,” he said Friday. (Zag's Blog)

Miles Bridges Puts On Show At Peach Jam

It would be tough for Miles Bridges to have a better performance than the one he put on Thursday night. In need of a win, Bridges was huge for The Family as they cruised home with a victory, and he cemented himself as one of the best forwards in the country. Recruiting is still steady for Bridges who intends to make his visits in the fall, and there is no doubt that Michigan State, Kentucky, and North Carolina are going to do everything in their power to get him at their school.
