Miles Bridges is a very athletic, combination forward that has made an immediate impact in college basketball.  He is an aggressive scorer that can score in a variety of ways, and he also is a solid rebounder.  But sometimes, he can play too wildly on offense, which can cause him to miss more shots and turn the ball over more than he should.​

Bridges may also project to be a solid defensive player at the next level, and combined with having satisfactory scoring skills, he could end up having a long career in the NBA.​
