Bolden is currently still between Kentucky and Duke and was originally set to announce before April 17th. With that date being far surpassed, the entire world of college sports has their eyes on the #1 ranked center in the 2016 class. "I'm definitely close," Bolden said in a brief interview during the game. "I'm making a decision real soon." While "real soon" certainly isn't a definitive date, it is the most information we've heard from Bolden himself in quite some time. He noted what factors will be most important in making his decision. "Really, just the relationships I have with the coaches and how comfortable I feel at their university." We told you on Friday that three Duke reporters from the 247 sports site changed their prediction from Duke to UK. Well they changed their predictions again, so Bolden's crystal ball now goes to 59% in Duke's favor. We'll keep you posted for the latest updates on Bolden's decision.
