Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia redshirt freshman Jalen Bridges had a remarkable first season at West Virginia University.

Bridges, who of course grew up 20 minutes from Morgantown in nearby Fairmont, averaged 5.9 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.  Bridges was a real bright spot for the Mountaineers this season and has an incredible future in front of him.

Bridges is a proud West Virginian and showed his pride in his home state by getting a massive “304” permanently tattooed on the back of his right leg.

The tattoo was done by Russ Miller at Art Attack and Tattoos on High Street in Morgantown.

Bridges continues to make the people of West Virginia proud with his clear love and dedication to our great state!
