Former Mountaineer Meets Nick Saban During Visit

Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia Mountaineers forward Jalen Bridges surprisingly entered the transfer portal last month.

He then set up visits with Ohio State, which he’s already visited, Michigan State, Baylor and today, he’s visiting Tuscaloosa, Alabama on the campus of Alabama University.

Bridges, who averaged 8.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season for the Mountaineers, is a five star transfer and one of the top players in the transfer portal.

During Bridges’ visit today, he was photographed with legendary football head coach Nick Saban, who is also from the Northcentral West Virginia area.
