The long-awaited college decision of Marques Bolden came to an end yesterday when the 6’10 center from Texas chose the Dukies. The decision came down to Duke and Kentucky, with Bolden ultimately choosing to play his home games at Cameron Indoor Stadium over Rupp Arena.
“I am happy this is over with,” Bolden said. “You could tell this was a very difficult decision for me because it took so long. I was looking for the perfect situation and I realized that’s not going to happen. I did not want to regret my decision; that’s why I took so long. It’s the biggest decision in my life so far.”
Bolden joins fellow 5-star recruits Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson as well as Javin DeLaurier and Jack White to round out one of Coach K’s best recruiting classes to date.
