Evan Daniels talks Marques Bolden, Cal vs K rivalry, 2017 recruiting and more

Where in the world will Marques Bolden go, and what do the Kentucky Wildcats do if they don't land the five-star center?

At this point, all indications are that the Cats are going all-or-nothing in terms of Bolden to finish off the 2016 class. He's the only guy they view as someone worth adding to an already-loaded '16 class that has five-star forwards Bam Adebayo, Wenyen Gabriel and Sacha Killeya-Jones in the frontcourt.

But Bolden is the kind of true banger at the 5 spot that UK badly missed last season, making him even more important to a team looking to contender for a title next season.

Ahead of Bolden's Thursday decision, recruiting director Evan Daniels talked with the cn2 gang about the big man's recruitment and what to know prior to Thursday's decision. Daniels also talked about John Calipari's latest recruiting manifesto and his rivalry with Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Daniels also talks about some of the top 2017 prospects on the rise, including UK targets P.J. Washington, Gary Trent Jr. and Trae Young.
