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.
