Though the recruitment of Marques Bolden will likely end within the next week, it does not appear it will end Friday night.
With Bolden playing in the Jordan Brand Classic in front of a national audience, speculation has been rampant this week that Bolden would announce his commitment to either Duke or Kentucky during the game. According to Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader, that is not scheduled to happen.
Just heard from Marques Bolden's father, who tells me that his son is not planning to announce his decision during tonight's Jordan Classic.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) April 15, 2016
@KyTomCat Think he doesn't want to announce in front of UK/Duke guys and disappoint one group. Don't think it's a sign of where he's going.— Ben Roberts (@NextCats) April 15, 2016
So for now, Bolden will play in tonight's game without committing to either the Wildcats or Blue Devils, though one of them will likely land the five-star center in the coming days and possibly week.
