I posted this in a thread already about spring basketball recruiting starting up, but that article is a few days old, so in case no one saw it:
We have another offer out on the table for the 2015 Class, a PG named James Bolden out of Kentucky. Last I checked on ESPN and Rivals he wasn't ranked, but he's listed as the #30 PG for 2015. He's 5’10 from Holmes High School in Covington, KY, just finished his sophomore year. I can’t seem to find his stats anywhere for this season, but his team went up against Kentucky Mr. Basketball Dominique Hawkins’ team in the Sweet 16 of the state tournament. He was 5/9 from 3, finished with 29 points, 13 rebounds in an OT loss.
Saw him at Ford Dining Court on Thursday the 11th. He was having lunch with Painter and (I think) Coach Shrewsberry, plus some of his high school coaches. Didn’t know who he was but my friends and I saw his jacket, said Holmes High School. Used the ole Internet to look him up, and then I just saw yesterday we offered him. Found an article saying his ultimate dream is to play for Kentucky, has grown up a Wildcats fan his whole life.
Think it's clear Painter might be trying to cast another wide net for 2015 since we already have a lot of interest in Hyron Edwards and Jordan Ash as small guards from that class. He's only 5'10 now, but he's only a sophomore, he's got time to grow a bit. Here's a couple links:

They lost in OT to Hawkins' team, but Bolden did have a pretty sick spin move and three at about the 1:00 mark.
Hope this isn't old news! If anyone can find season statistics on him, let us know.
