Jalen Bridges, the 6’7 four star small forward originally from Fairmont, WV, committed to West Virginia University following his visit to Morgantown last month.
During his final season at Fairmont Senior, Bridges averaged 22.2 points per game and took his team to the state championship game. Although he is now enrolled at WVU, he will redshirt this season and be a part of the 2020 class.
West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins commented on Jalen Bridges during his press conference today, saying, “I think he’s going to be a really good player, but the decision has always been for him to redshirt this season.
