The recruitment of Marques Bolden is finally coming to a close with a decision in sight.
The five-star center will make his decision today during an announcement ceremony at Desoto High School in front of family, friends and peers. 247 Sports will be holding a Facebook live stream of Bolden's commitment, which you can watch at this link:

We'll post the actual stream here once it has started. Bolden is expected to announce his decision shortly after the ceremony begins at 2:30 p.m. EST.
Bolden is not only regarded as the best high school center, but one of the best overall prospects in the 2016 class. He's ranked 11th overall by Rivals.com, 16th by ESPN, 8th by Scout.com, 15th by 247 Sports Composite. Bolden also had good showings in the McDonald's All-American Game, Jordan Brand Classic and Nike Hoop Summit, both in practices and the games.
Oh, and whoever gets Bolden will then earn the No. 1 recruiting class for 2016. All of this is why Bolden is such a big deal, and we'll all know where he's going very soon...
