Joe Bolden Commits to Michigan
Another 2012 football recruit is off the board. This time, it is Colerain High School (Ohio) linebacker Joe Bolden.
Bolden committed to Michigan this afternoon; he chose the Wolverines over Kentucky, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Stanford, and Penn State.
“I’ve prayed about the decision and God has told me in more than one way that the University of Michigan is my home for the next 4 years!” the junior said enthusiastically. He is definitely excited to be a Michigan Wolverine.
There will be many questions as to if Bolden will schedule and take other visits to schools, but according to a coach of Bolden’s, he is all-Michigan.
“Joe is committed to Michigan. He is going to now focus on baseball and winning a state championship in football next season,” his coach said after asking about whether or not he will look at other teams.
“He is a great kid. Of all the Division-1 linebackers I have coached, he put the most into his decision.”
Bolden is the seventh prospect to commit to Michigan in the Class of 2012, and the third linebacker thus far. Brady Hoke looks to be doing good early as Michigan’s new coach.
Great pickup for Michigan. If you are looking for a kid to start your program around, Joe Bolden would definitely be up there.
