Four-star small forward Jalen Bridges placed Pitt in his top 10 a week ago, and he followed that up by taking an unofficial visit to the school on Sunday. The visit marked the third time a four-star recruit had come to Pitt’s campus in a four-day span, as Donovan Johnson visited last Thursday and R.J. Davis visited last Friday.

Bridges is a native of Fairmont, West Virginia, and he was a star at Fairmont Senior High School from 2015 to 2019. During that time, he led the Polar Bears to four straight West Virginia state championship appearances. Bridges was also named the West Virginia player of the year after averaging 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.0 blocks and 1.9 steals per game last season.

With that said, Bridges is currently enrolled at Scotland Campus, a preparatory school in Scotland, Pennsylvania, as he opted to play an additional season at the high school level before heading off to college. Scotland is the same school that produced current Pitt power forward Karim Coulibaly.

Both Rivals and 247Sports consider Bridges a four-star recruit and one of the top 100 prospects in the 2020 class. Rivals ranks him 93rd in the country, and 247Sports ranks him 78th. The small forward previously told Alex Hickey of WV Metro News that he plans to commit in October or November.
