Bolden pledges to local school

Chris Bolden will stay close to home. The 2012 prospect gave a verbal commitment on Saturday.

Brian Gregory and Georgia Tech kept a local kid home on Saturday.

Chris Bolden, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard out of Suwannee (Ga.) North Gwinnett, gave the Yellow Jackets staff a verbal commitment.

"I really like the atmosphere," Bolden said. "My relationship with the coaches is great and I think I'll be a good fit there."

In late July, Bolden claimed Harvard as his leader. He also had interest from Texas A&M, USC, Mississippi, Miami and Virginia Tech.

Bolden was once committed to Miami, but backed off his pledge because of Frank Haith's departure.

Bolden is Georgia Tech's first commitment in the 2012 class.
