“It doesn’t really matter to me about the distance,” Bolden said. “I went to Vegas for the first time and loved the weather, the mountains, the view.”
Bolden is a very good prospect, and is starting to show more football skill as opposed to just being a size and speed projection.
Florida State has had committed prospects release top lists before, and the trend is becoming more common. But it’s also been clear that if prospects look around, it will as well. In the 2017 cycle, it dropped committed linebacker Demarco Artis after his repeated flirtation with Oregon and Baylor, where he later signed. Certainty is important in recruiting to an extent, and it’s possible for a recruit to overplay his hand.
But I can’t blame Bolden for wanting to check out his options. Recruiting is about the only time a future college athlete has leverage in the NCAA’s framework.
We’ll see how serious Bolden is about Oregon when and if the visit happens.
The Indianapolis Colts will start rookie Bjoern Werner at outside linebacker on Sunday. Erik Walden is suspended for one game for headbutting Titans tight end Delanie Walker in Week 11. Walden appealed the suspension but the league upheld it — rather quickly — so Walden has to sit out. Werner was taken with the No. 24 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. He slipped due to being raw, and this will be his first start. It should be interesting, to say the least.
Game Kids Warren Sapp Jersey Minnesota Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder was named the starter for the team’s Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers. Ponder was pulled from his team’s loss Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks after a pair of interceptions, but Matt Cassel threw an interception of his own in relief. Josh Freeman isn’t exactly a strong option either. It seems like Ponder might have a better handle on the offense at this point, so the Vikings will take the lesser of three evils.
