TomVH Reports via Twitter: Bolden Commits to Michigan
I was so slow that by the time i clicked on MGo to start a thread, there were 3. Welcome Joe!
haah i was going to start a thread too, and noticed 3 people beat me to it. Thats funny. Anyways, welcome aboard Mr Bolden!
Welcome to Michigan Joe.
So which other linebacker is going to commit with him? That's how it works right?
Gotta be someone from Michigan; they always come in MI/OH pairs.
A royal wedding and another highly ranked linebacker commitment. What a day!
Of course, the linebacker committment is the bigger news.
Our LBs are looking great this year. Happy to have his commitment. Let's keep this recruitment training rolling...
Who is going to be the second commit for the day?
It obviously has to be Ross.
I can has more 4 star linebackers?
I guess this means no Ross, but I'm cool with that.
From TomVH: LB Joe Bolden said he chose #Michigan because God told him in more than one way that Michigan was his home
Really excited about the future we have at the linebacker position. I still think we should take James Ross as well in this class. What say you MgoBoard?
So excited I thought it best to click my mouse 1 too many times...
4* #27 OLB to Scout, #16 in Ohio per OSU's Rivals, ESPN150 Watch List, 4* ILB to 247Sports
Notable offers from Arkansas, Iowa, PSU, Stanford, Tennessee and WV among others
Wonder who the second part of "commit by pairs" will be?
I am loving that we already have three four star linebackers. I really like everything I've heard about Bolden as far as his character is concerned. He will be a good guy to have around for the next 4/5 years.
Congrats on the best decision of your life Joe!
This class is off to a great start. No need to worry about LBs for the next few years,
Duane Long, Ohio recruting guru-of-sorts, likes this kid a lot. He went back and forth between listing Ringer as the best LB in the state and listing Ringer and Bolden as tied for the top. It seems like OSU would have taken Bolden in most years. They're just really stacked at LB right now.
Joe Bolden that is. Great Choice Joe. !!!
Highly rated Ohio linebacker..but no OSU offer.. anyone know why?
Sounds like a terrific kid off the field as well. This makes me smile. :)
I am emboldened by this news. Thanks Tom and Shoe, and welcome Joe.
I can't wait to see these guys don the Maize and Blue! Regardless where this take LB recruiting...Bolden is quality and likely to stick it out and get his degree. YES!
These kids most really want to play for Hoke and Mattison - this is going to be a very gooddefense class. Let's sure up some DL and get back to being one of the best defenses in the big ten!
Is the guy or do we have another one who is the silent? Perhaps it's time they come to the forefront!
