Did De'Aaron Fox tease Marques Bolden commitment?

New, 36 comments

The last big piece in the 2016 class for Kentucky and Duke is five-star center Marques Bolden.

One of the few top uncommitted prospects still on the board, it looks as though the Wildcats or Blue Devils are going all-in for Bolden as they look to secure a historic 2016 class that may go down as one of the all-timers. That is if Bolden joins either UK's No. 1 class or Duke's No. 2 haul, which seems like a given at this point even though TCU is among the final three.

But did Bolden already make his decision? UK signee and fellow Texas De'Aaron Fox seemed to hint at that in a Snapchat sent Sunday night.

If the Cats do ultimately land Bolden, that would give UK six five-star pledges for 2016, not to mention the top point guard (Fox), combo guard (Malik Monk) and center (Bolden) in most recruiting services, not to mention three top-20 prospects in Wenyen Gabriel, Sacha Killeya-Jones Bam Adebayo.

For now, Bolden is in Chicago getting set for at the McDonald's All-American and doing charity work on Easter Sunday:

It's possible Bolden is letting his intentions know and will formally announce his decision sometime this week. Whatever happens, it's looking more and more like Kentucky is leading for Bolden heading into the home stretch.
