The Michigan State basketball program could be receiving some great news very soon.
According to reports, star freshman forward Miles Bridges, who many had assumed would be a one-and-done player, is “leaning heavily” towards a return to school for his sophomore campaign.
NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski was first to pass along the news.

Last season, Bridges averaged 16.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.5 blocks per game. Those numbers were good enough to lead the Spartans in points, rebounds and blocks.
If Bridges does ultimately decide to put his NBA career on hold, that will be great news for Michigan State’s chances entering the 2017-18 college basketball season.
