Duke playing the waiting game with Marques Bolden

Nearly a month after touted center Marques Bolden originally planned to announce his college decision, Duke is still waiting to find out whether or not the heralded big man will join its 2016 recruiting class.

The Blue Devils are a finalist for the Texas native, with John Calipari and Kentucky standing in the way as the main competition.

Earlier in the spring, Bolden told the Dallas Morning News he would reveal his decision before April 17 — his 18th birthday. By mid-April, however, the decision was delayed. Since then, Duke has continued to hold out for the McDonald’s All-American.
