Miles Bridges, the 5-star forward out of Huntington Prep. announced last night that he would be trimming his list to three final schools this afternoon, and Indiana has made the cut. The 6'6 swingman was a teammate last season with Indiana freshman Thomas Bryant -- and he's also pegged Kentucky and Michigan State as members of his final three.

So do the Hoosiers have a chance?

Uh, well, maybe. Maybe not.

Bridges has been linked to Kentucky by most recruiting experts for nearly a year, but Indiana's presence in his final three means the Hoosiers aren't out of it yet. The hyper-athletic wing player was being pursued by a number of top programs, with schools like UNC and Michigan being left out after his latest announcement.

Bridges has a visit with Kentucky on the horizon, following visits to the other two schools on the list. He's planning on announcing his final choice on October 3rd -- and most experts on 247 sports fully expect him to head to Kentucky.

In the meantime, enjoy this vine of Mr. Bridges dunking on some fool last spring at the Dick's National High School Invitational.

Cross your fingers, Hoosier fans.
