5-star center Marques Bolden commits to Duke


Duke put a cherry on top of an already-stellar 2016 recruiting class on Thursday when 5-star center Marques Bolden committed to the Blue Devils. Bolden joins what is now a six-man class that also includes consensus 5-star standouts Harry Giles (power forward), Jayson Tatum (small forward) and Frank Jackson (point guard).

Bolden, who is considered the No. 15 prospect in the class according to 247Sports’ composite rankings, picked Duke over Kentucky.
