Mikal Bridges is one to add to your 2014 recruiting watchlist, as the 6'7" wing from Malvern, PA will be on the Villanova campus today taking in what the Villanova Wildcats have to offer. Bridges is currently ranked #99 in the 2014 Rivals150, and #85 in 247sports Top 100.
Andrew Slater of 247sports broke the news of Bridges' impending visit to the Main Line.
. @mikalbridges , #85 in '14 for @247sports , said he's visiting Villanova tomorrow. He has offers from Florida, Va Tech, Temple & St. Joe's— Andrew Slater (@ASlater247) June 3, 2013
Bridges has flown a bit under the radar having played at Great Valley High School, which is not a traditional power on the Philadelphia basketball scene. However, since joining up with Team Final this spring and summer, Bridges is seeing his stock rise as he continues to impress along the Nike EYBL circuit.
Bridges' most recent offers have come from La Salle and Florida, and he has previously been linked with Xavier. With the recent hiring of Ashley Howard at Villanova, this may be an indication of Howard's work already starting to pay off on the recruiting trail.
