James Bolden Is Ready for AAU

James Bolden is special. You can see it just by watching him practice.
During water breaks he practices shooting free throws. When rebounding in drills he works on his handle before passing the ball back out. He's always working to get better and he knows what he needs to work on.
"Going right, everyone's been talking about it, so I'm just gonna go right all Summer."
Before this past High School Season nobody was talking about James Bolden. Now he's one of the hottest topics in all of the Bluegrass.
The 5'11" 150 pound Sophomore PG from Holmes High School in Covington, Ky possesses a tremendous ability for handling the ball. And he uses that handle to get wherever he wants on the court, finishing in the lane and with his jumper.
Colleges have taken notice too, Xavier has offered him already, and the University of Kentucky has recently been in contact. Iowa State, Wright State, Northern Kentucky, Ohio, Dayton, Butler, Cincinnati, Purdue and others have all shown interest as well.
And Bolden is likely to draw more interest this Summer as he plays in the EYBL for Travelers Basketball 17U. Bolden will be playing up an age group but he knows it'll be tough and is ready for the challenge.
"It's gonna be tough, there's gonna be games where I'm not hitting shots and I'm not doing everything correctly, it's gonna teach me how to play through adversity."
James Bolden is a special talent, everyone will be able to see that this Summer.
