While it is not unusual for a player in high school to play both sides of the ball, it is surprising to see him being recruited heavily at both spits. Bolasky, a 6-0 192 pounder is being looked at by many schools for his running abilities, but Arizona is looking for him to make an impact on the defensive end.
Although Bolasky had looked great as a ball carrier he is not necessarily sold on being an offensive player. He was singing the UA's praises following Sabino's convincing 35-6 victory over Palo Verde.
"We (Arizona and I) have such close contact, they're in town so I have the most contact with them," said Bolasky. "We have a lot of correspondence, they're around the games a lot, so it's the relationship building with the coaches."
In the match-up with Palo Verde, Bolasky ran in two touchdowns including one where he broke a 29 yard run for the score. He is a solid running back who has good speed, running a 4.5.
"If I can get to the edge I have some good speed, that's the big thing, trying to get to that edge and keep my legs driving down into that red zone," Bolasky said.
Following such a strong performance against Sabino, it's no surprise that Bolaski hopes to continue playing football on the offensive side of the football.
"Mostly right now I'm playing offense," explained Bolasky. "That's my main goal right now, to play some offense in college."
While Arizona continues to recruit him for his defensive abilities, Bolasky has not given up on the Cats.
"No not at all," Bolasky replied simply when being asked if there was anything he disliked about the UA.
Bolasky is working hard his senior season, but still had time to think about his future. He even has a timetable of when he'd like to make a decision.
"Right now I'm kind of in the process of narrowing it down," Bolaski said. "I'm not sure right now but I still have my options open. I'm going to make a decision sometime probably in the winter."
The Sabrecat has made it clear that he likes the Cats and he said he was offered a scholarship this past spring. While distance is not necessarily a factor, it seems like there may be some motivation to stay in Tucson.
"I'm not going to try to make [distance] a factor, but it's great to stay at home and there's a lot of advantages to that," said Bolasky.
Bolasky has made numerous visits to the Arizona campus, with his most recent coming last Saturday for the NAU game.
