Another Marques Bolden Update…Kinda, Sorta, Maybe?

Another day in “The Bolden Watch” and it seems as though we’re still not any closer to an announcement from Marques on the plans for his future.

If you recall, this past weekend at the Ball Is Life All-American Game he said “Yeah, I’m definitely close. I’ll make that decision real soon.”

There were rumblings that he may announce by the end of this week but Adam Rowe, of BlueDevilLair.com, spoke to DeSoto High School’s Athletic Director Larry Davis who said, “At this time, there has not been an announcement date set.”

Many have speculated that Bolden has been waiting on Marcus Lee of Kentucky to decide on if he is staying in the NBA Draft or will return to school. Lee had been on the NBA Draft Combine’s Alternate List, however, due to players returning to school (and Ben Simmons skipping the combine) he now has an official invite.

Remember, the deadline to remove your name from the NBA Draft is May 25th, so this could still go on for another few weeks.
