Bolden talks interest in Wisconsin
With just four quarterbacks expected to take part in fall camp later this summer, the mentioned position has become a top priority early in the 2010 recruiting cycle.
And with the Wisconsin staff already extending offers to eight known uncommitted prospects, many expect UW to take two signal callers in the current junior class.
Wednesday night, BadgerBlitz.com caught up with one of the Badger targets, Robert Bolden of Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary's, to discuss his interest in the Wisconsin program.
The following is a question and answer segment with the 6-foot-4, 195-pound dual-threat quarterback
What's the latest regarding Wisconsin? Have they been actively recruiting you?
Bolden: They've been up here a couple times. I've been speaking with them, so has my dad. I keep in contact. It's still wide open right now.
Have you developed any relationship with the staff?
Bolden: Actually, I've been talking with
I forgot his name (Bolden is being recruited at Wisconsin by DelVaughn Alexander). It's hard because I have so many people who are in contact with me. I've been talking to him a lot actually. We've exchanged e-mails three or four times and I've talked to him over the phone a few times. He's a real good guy.
Have you ever been to Madison? Do you plan on visiting?
Bolden: Actually, I've never been up there. Hopefully over the summer I could. I get out of school tomorrow for the summer and we plan making some visits. We're still talking about it and haven't decided on anything just yet.
You have an impressive offer list, did any of the offers catch you off guard?
Bolden: Not really because all the offers came through the mail. I'd call the staff and they would just say they were offering. Iowa kind of shocked me because I received a letter in the mail and I hadn't even talked to them. I mean there were few offers that were kind of unexpected, but other than that nothing truly surprising.
Did you grow up following a certain school?
Bolden: Na, I really didn't watch much football. I really didn't start playing football until I was 13 years old. I wasn't really into it at a young age. I really didn't watch anyone specifically.
Could you list some of your attributes? What makes you a good player?
Bolden: I'm the kind of dual-threat guy who likes to pass. I'm not the type of dual-threat guy who takes off every chance he gets. I can deliver the ball, but I have the ability to run if necessary. That's what a lot of schools like about me. I'm a quarterback first but can pull the ball down and make a play.
I feel as though I have a lot of stuff to work on just like everyone else. So, I still need to work hard and improve on my abilities.
What type of offensive system are you looking for?
