Taking visits to schools that have been showing him the most interest is where defensive back Oliver Bridges’ focus lies right now. The Potomac (Md.) Bullis School star has a few schools in mind for visits right when the dead period ends.
IN HIS OWN WORDS…
“Everything has been going well,” Bridges said. “I’m just looking into visits when this dead period finishes up. I want to visit the the schools that have been recruiting me so far like Maryland, Pitt, Penn State, Rutgers, Virginia, Cincinnati, and schools like that. I feel like once I visit these schools, I’ll get a feel for where I want to be and get a feel for what feels like home. That’s my big thing.
Maryland- “Being a hometown guy, I’ve always been around Terps football,” he said. “I feel like they’re building something special over there and it’s great to be nearby.”

Virginia- “I’ve been getting on Zoom calls with them as well,” he said. “I’ve been talking to a coach Howell and coach Hunter. We’ve been building a pretty good relationship. We’ve been talking about visiting sometime, even if it’s just me going on campus, that would be good just to get a feel for it.”

Bridges is going to really surprise a lot of these coaches when they’re finally able to see him up close. A few of these schools are really prioritizing him and some of his strongest relationships are with Rutgers and Virginia. Pittsburgh and Penn State are in a position to gain a lot of ground once he visits campus. Bridges knows a lot of people over at Maryland but he needs to build a stronger relationship with the new defensive coaches. Cincinnati is another school Bridges hopes to visit during his spring break or over the summer.
