Miles Bridges 'leaning heavily' toward returning for sophomore year

Miles Bridges plans on returning to Michigan State next year for his sophomore season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

It appears Miles Bridges has made a decision about his future.

Bridges is a near-lock to be a lottery pick (selected in the first 15 picks) in the upcoming NBA Draft if he decides to bolt MSU after on year, with some mocks having him going in the top 10.

Wojnarowski is reporting that Bridges has reportedly canceled meetings with National Basketball Association agents, which he would need representation from had he opted to turn pro.

This is a potentially huge development for Michigan State and the Big Ten overall with the increased likelihood of Bridges returning to school.

Bridges led the Spartans with 16.9 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game this season.

Although we do not have any information that confirms that Bridges will in fact return for his sophomore campaign, this definitely is a step in the right direction for one more year at Michigan State.

Bridges was the lone bright spot for a Spartans team that struggled to even make the field of 68 past year.

Izzo has another solid recruiting class coming in with 5-star standout Jaren Jackson Jr. and 4-star Xavier Tillman, who is rated as the top high school player in MI.
