Norcross High shooting guard Chris Bolden, one of the state’s most heavily-recruited basketball prospects for 2012, committed to Miami.
The 6-foot-2 Bolden was also considering offers from Clemson, Marquette, Nebraska, Louisville, among others. He is ranked as the No. 98 junior in the nation by Rivals.
“I love the freedom that the Miami system gives the guards,” Bolden said. “I’m a shooter and watching practice I could see how I could bring that and be a valuable part of the team.
“I also have a lot of family in the Miami area and it will be exciting to have them watch me play. Overall, the atmosphere on campus and with thestudents was exactly what I was looking for”.
Bolden averaged 9.5 points last year as a sophomore.
