High school career[edit]

At DeSoto High School, Bolden supplied per-game averages of 23.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots as a senior,[1] helping his team win the Texas Class 6A state title, while earning Texas Mr. Basketball[2] and TABC 6A Player of the Year honors. He had eight points and five rebounds in the 2016 Jordan Brand Classic[3] and tallied 13 points as well as seven boards at the McDonald’s All-American Game the same year.[4]

Ranked 8th overall in the 2016 high school class by Scout.com, 11th overall by Rivals and 16th overall by ESPN, Bolden committed to Duke in May 2016.[5]

College career[edit]

Bolden had to sit out the first eight games of the 2016-17 season due to a leg injury,[6] before making his debut against Maine on December 3, 2016, scoring seven points and five rebounds.[7] He missed the NCAA Tournament due to illness[8] and averaged 1.5 points and 1.1 rebounds (24 games) as a freshman.[9]

As a sophomore, Bolden averaged 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds per game, playing behind Wendell Carter Jr. and Marvin Bagley III. On June 25, 2018, coach Mike Krzyzewski said he thought he would be one of the best big men in the upcoming season.[10]

Playing at the 2016 Nike Hoop Summit, Bolden scored three points and pulled down two rebounds in 13 minutes of action for Team USA.[11] He attended training camp of the 2017 USA Basketball Men's U19 World Cup Team, but was cut before the start of the tournament.[12]
