The high-flying freshman joins some elite company

2016 McDonald's All American Game

Michigan State freshman forward Miles Bridges was named First Team All-America by Sporting News this morning. Check it out...

Per Mike DeCourcy...

It’s not often a freshman walks into the MSU program, shakes Tom Izzo’s hands and takes over the team. But the guys who might have gotten in his way are gone — some on schedule, Deyonta Davis too soon — and the Spartans will need Bridges to be great. Bridges is a powerful lefty who will shoot, drive and rebound. And you know how much Izzo loves rebounders. He is the centerpiece of the deepest recruiting class the coach has signed.

Yep. He should be pretty good! The full teams are as follows...

First Team

  • Grayson Allen, Duke
  • Josh Hart, Villanova
  • Dillon Brooks, Oregon
  • Miles Bridges, Michigan State
  • Melo Trimble, Maryland

Second Team
