  • Miles Bridges' commitment gives Tom Izzo his highest rated class ever

    In Tom Izzo's illustrious 20-year career as Michigan State's head coach, he has never landed more than two consensus top 50 prospects in the same class before.

    At minimum, he'll double that next year.

    Small forward Miles Bridges became the fourth top 50 Class of 2016 prospect to select Michigan State when he committed to the Spartans during a news conference on Saturday in his hometown of Flint. Bridges,'s No. 11 prospect, chose Michigan State over fellow finalists Kentucky and Indiana.

    The addition of Bridges solidifies the 2016 class as the most highly touted that Izzo has ever landed. Joining Bridges in East Lansing next fall will be high-scoring 6-foot-6 wing Joshua Langford (No. 18), dynamic 6-foot point guard Cassius Winston (No. 28) and broad-shouldered 6-foot-9 forward Nick Ward (No. 45).
