Joe Bolden Report
Joe Bolden (6-3/235) is currently ranked the 27th best OLB in the nation and holds a 4 star rating. It was a big surprise today when Bolden sat in Coach Hoke’s office and told him he was going to commit. He is very invested in academics and grew up a Ohio State fan but never had any strong feelings about playing there. Bolden makes lots of playing in coverage and does a tremendous job dropping back into zones and passing lanes. Joe Bolden is also very well-disciplined and does a great job of not over pursuing. As a linebacker he is certainly not afraid to be physical. The one area of improvement I could possibly see is him wrapping up players better, although like I said he is a great athlete.
