NBA Comparison: Jerome Kersey

Strengths: 6’6 powerfully built combo forward … Has great strength. freakishly explosive, dunks everything possible. Great body control and confidence ... High energy player. Brings consistent aggression every possession of every game ... A true competitor … Shooting has shown improvement in the past year ... Has the ability to make shots from a variety of spots on the floor … Added an in-and-out crossover to beat the first line of defense … Tremendous rebounder for a wing, gets boards in and out of his area. Great shot blocker for a wing, elevates quickly. Quick first step … Very good ambidexterity as a finisher on layups and dunks. Has an array of floaters and layups off of spin moves in the paint … Solid court vision and passing ability … Has shown great improvement throughout high school career … Good at drawing fouls. Plays well in traffic and through contact ... Lateral quickness is good and gives hope of him transitioning to a full time SF ...

Weaknesses: "Classic tweener" ... His NBA position remains a big question mark as he is severely underzied for the post and doesn't have polished perimeter skills at this point ... His shooting has drastically improved in the past year but he still doesn’t shoot with consistency yet ... Has a low release and doesn't exhibit a fluid shooting form ... He usually shoots from three or gets all the way to the rim, his midrange game will need to improve moving forward ... Needs to improve ball handling ability and overall perimeter skills ... More effective in catch and shoot than pulling up ... Undersized for a player that spends a majority of time in the paint but shows potential to guard multiple positions … Has some ball handling ability, but it's a high dribble that must be tightened and proven against real competition ... Relies on superior strength and athleticism … Creating offense will be much more difficult at the next level ...

Outlook: Bridges has shown improvement each year, continuing to step up as his role increased. He was able to compete against many top players and had his share of exceptional games while being the most exciting player on the floor in the process. Bridges highlights a strong recruiting class for Michigan State and was named to both McDonald’s All American Game and Jordan Brand Classic.

Notes: Measured 6'5, 225 lbs with a 6'9 wingspan at the 2014 Nike Elite 100 ... Measured 6’7.5’’ in shoes, with a 6’8.5’’ wingspan and 230 lbs at the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy ...
