The hope of many prospects while attending camps is that they'll be noticed and deemed worthy of a scholarship offer. Bolen wasn't met with that offer when he returned home from the one-day junior event at BYU.
"Yeah, I was hoping for an offer, but it didn't come," said Bolen. "They like me they say, but think I need to put on some more weight for them to offer me. We'll just see what happens."
Bolen is not content to just sit by, hoping BYU or another school may come around. The rushing champion out of Grandview High is aiming to work as hard as possible to prove his worth during the summer.
"I'm going back to BYU's camp and I'll go to Utah's as well," said Bolen. "I feel that I don't do as well without contact, but hopefully I'll prove my worth to either school at summer camp."
Bolen knows that in order to prove his worth, he has to improve his speed, having ran a disappointing 4.8 at a recent camp.
"That's my focus right now," said Bolen. "I need to get my speed up, along with working on my strength."
As mentioned, Bolen has received interest from schools other than BYU.
Although no scholarship offer has made itself available, Bolen is hopeful that one will be coming his way soon.
"I feel that I'm a Division I player who can play for a major school," said Bolen. "Schools are interested and now I just need to show them that I'm worthy of a scholarship. Utah coaches like me a lot and have made calls, Stanford texts me all the time, and I've had a lot of contact with BYU. Something will open up and hopefully I'll get an offer."
