With the commitment of Marques Bolden coming soon, there is still a lot of uncertainty as to who comes out on top in this recruitment.

The five-star center is expected to pick between Kentucky and Duke during a ceremony at his high school on Thursday. all of the signs have been pointing to UK leading up to the big decision, but don't make the mistake of thinking that means Bolden definitely ends up a Wildcat.

247 Sports Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer still expects the Blue Devils to come out on top for Bolden:

It has to be pointed out that Bolden has done a great job of keeping his decision very close to the vest as good as any recruit UK has been in the mix for recently, so I wouldn't be surprised at any decision made Thursday. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out that Bolden's National Latter of Intent is already sitting in the office of whichever head coach Bolden will commit to...

Whoever gets Bolden is going to end up with the No. 1 recruiting class in 2016 as both Duke and Kentucky hold the top two classes as of now.
