Flint, Michigan native Miles Bridges is one of the top wings in the class of 2016, and coming off of this weekend's Peach Jam, his recruiting picture is a bit clearer. Bridges released a top five schools list this morning.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman has more about Bridges' top five, including notes on every finalist.
On Michigan: “I talk to Coach (John) Beilein all the time and it’s a great situation. I love the way they bring in guys who aren’t ranked and turn them into pros.”
On Michigan State: “It’s only 45 minutes away from my home and they are one of the first schools to recruit me. A lot of guys from my area have gone there and been successful.”
On Kentucky: “My mom and I really liked Kentucky. I love how they get guys to the NBA.”
North Carolina: “I just started talking to Coach (Roy) Williams. I like the program, their style of playing run-and-gun. He really lets them play.”
Indiana: “Tom Crean always gives me feedback when he sees me play. I like their staff and that school is all about basketball.”
Basketball school lists don't get much better than that. Bridges is a five-star talent, and ranked as the No. 3 small forward and No. 18 player overall in his class.
