Demonte Bolden, 6'5", 285, DL, from Tyner HS/Chattanooga, TN, is a member of TheInsiders National Hot 100 as well as the South Hot 100. TheInsiders has Bolden rated as a 5 star prospect.
Bolden, a Tennessee commit, had the message boards for the state of Alabama and Tennessee in full throttle on Wednesday. Rumors were flying that Bolden had de-committed from Tennessee and was now leaning south of the Tennessee border.
I had a chance to talk to Bolden on Wednesday night and this is what he had to say:
Q: Rumor has it you de-committed from Tennessee today?
A: No, that's not true at all. Everybody's been asking me that today and that is not true.
Q: What will you be looking for when you go on your official visits?
A: The environment. I want to see all the guys I will be around. All the people.
Q: Which coaches have impressed you the most?
