Late this afternoon in a flurry of tweets it was announced Marques Bolden would announce his decision this week, a full month after he was originally going to announce.

First it was Tues., then changed to Thurs. and even then the time on Thurs. changed.

According to Ben Roberts of the Lexington Herald-Leader, Bolden will announce this Thurs. at 2:30pm ET.

While Duke seemed to be the leader a month ago, momentum seems to have swung to Kentucky as they are the perceived leader. Some believed that momentum had shifted back to do with word the Marcus Lee has canceled a few NBA workouts. But this morning it was announced Charles Matthews is transferring from Kentucky…the day before Bolden’s announcement. If Lee comes back there potentially wasn’t a scholarship available for Bolden. Now there is.

If Bolden signs a National Letter of Intent it has to be in by today. So there is a chance you’ll start seeing news leak of where he is going later today.

Whoever lands the Top 20 player will have the #1 recruiting class for 2016.

One way or another, this should be over by Thurs.
