You don’t have to be in the Bolden camp to know Marques is having a hard time deciding between Duke and Kentucky. Yesterday the Montgomery Adviser in Alabama ran a story on Bolden and how the Tide was once in the mix for his services, with quotes from Bolden’s head coach, Chris Dyer.
“He says, ‘Coach is this a life-altering decision,” Dyer told the newspaper. “This could really impact my life.’ I said, ‘Yeah, OK. But you’re still going to school.’”
Though many fans have grown impatient with Bolden’s recruitment, it’s not all that uncommon for recruits to wait this long into the spring or summer. Four other ESPN100 players also remain undecided as of today, including Jarrett Allen.
Remember: Back when we were all anxiously awaiting Andrew Wiggins’ announcement in 2013, he waited all the way until mid May to pick Kansas. More recently, John Calipari didn’t land Jamal Murray until late June of last year, after failing to get Malik Newman in late April and Jaylen Brown in May.
Bolden is struggling with his “life-altering decision” and will announce when he is ready to announce, whether that be tomorrow, this weekend or three weeks from now.
