What's new with Bridge?

One of the top remaining uncommitted skill position players from Pennsylvania in the Class of 2011 is Dexter Bridge and not a whole lot has changed with regard to his recruitment of late.

That could be about to change as Bridge should be sending out some film of his early season performances and college coaches make their way to Berwyn (Pa.) Conestoga to watch him in person.

So far Conestoga is 2-1 on the season having lost their last game. Bridge says his squad is one of the top three teams in the league so they'll be playing important football for the rest of the season.

Bridge's numbers might cause some to raise their eyebrows. His 17 catches and two touchdowns are impressive, but those catches have only gone for 75 yards. How does that work?

"We haven't been passing a lot," he said. "One game our running game was doing well and our running back had five touchdowns. Our first game I had two touchdowns and the third game we didn't really start passing until the end of the game.

"Only one of the passes was deep. The rest have been short. The two touchdowns I had were inside the redzone."

Bridge has been trying to get in more contact with NC State and Illinois, the two schools that have offered. He has also been keeping in touch with schools like Miami, Boston College and Virginia.

Bridge is ranked the No. 71 wide receiver in the nation and the No. 12 prospect in the state.
