Jair Bolden commits to George Washington

George Washington added a pledge from combo guard Jair Bolden.

2016 guard Jair Bolden just verbally committed to George Washington, he told Scout. 

"Me and my family value academics and I'm obviously a serious basketball player and I feel like G.W. has the best balance," Bolden said. 

Bolden, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Westtown (Pa.) School, took an unofficial visit to George Washington in August and followed it up with his official visit this past weekend.

"I knew they were very high on my list," Bolden siad. "I didn't necessarily know they were the school I wanted to go.  When I visited,  met the coaching staff, players and saw the campus I was pretty much sold." 

Bolden also considered Boston and Columbia.
