De'Aaron Fox and Jayson Tatum make their pitch to Marques Bolden

New, 2 comments

"We already know Kentucky is the best spot for ya." - De'Aaron Fox's pitch to Marques Bolden.

The recruitment of Marques Bolden continues as we likely won't see a decision made at the very least until next week.

It's possible that the five-star center doesn't make his decision until closer to the May 18th deadline to sign a national letter of intent, though it's not unheard of to see recruits wait until after that to sign financial aid paperwork later in May/June.

Hopefully, that won't be the case and we'll soon see Bolden make his decision. Whenever he does decide, recruits from both the Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils continue to recruit him.

Now, the public pressure from them is amping up. One day after Jayson Tatum expressed confidence that Bolden was coming to Duke, De'Aaron Fox is now getting in on the action with this IG post where he makes his pitch for Bolden to become a Wildcat.

Tatum had his own IG pitch to Bolden, though he didn't sound quite as confident as Fox did.

I wouldn't read too much into either pitch, but it does appear Fox is far more confident in getting Bolden than Tatum is. Then again, maybe Tatum is just tired of all the Bolden questions and ready for the big man to make his big decision.
