Every Tuesday and Thursday in July, you can come out to the Aim High gym in Lansing.

It's where you can find guys like former Michigan State Spartan Matt Costello, as well as the new crop, including Miles Bridges, Jaren Jackson Junior, who are all putting on a show for the fans they call family.

"It's more than a fanbase it's more like a family environment and playing in front of something like that is just special," Jackson Junior said.

"I love it just being this close to the fans you can sign autographs take pictures and things like that it's hands-on with the fans and we're doing this for them," sophomore Cassius Winston added.

"It's like a VIP coming into the locker room signing autographs take pictures and we're doing it for free here it's a great experience," Bridges stated.

Plenty of eyes are focused on the two newcomers, five star forward Jaren Jackson Junior, who certainly has the length that can help this team next year.

Xavier Tillman is also a big man, more of a bruiser, but make no mistake, the headliner is Miles Bridges as he turned down the NBA and big money to come back and try to win a championship.

"I'm just trying to focus on getting better, I'm still learning how to win and I just want to have a great season," Bridges said.

"I'm not in a rush to be in the real world by myself and I just want to be a kid. The money can wait," Bridges stated.
