Omar Bolden had a very impressive Los Angeles Scout.com Combine this spring, measuring 5-feet-11, 187 pounds, and running a blazing 4.35 sec. 40 yard dash and a 4.2 sec. shuttle, as well as recording an excellent 34 inch vertical jump.
The Ontario (Calif.) Colony athlete worked out at running back at the combine, which has been his high school position so far. As a junior he ran for 700 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns despite missing four games with a sprained right ankle.
But, after standing out at this summer's B2G Elite Camp in Southern Calif., his college future looks to be as a cornerback.

And, Bolden told GoBlueWolverine, that after his summer performances at cornerback Michigan has weighed in with a scholarship offer. "Yeah, it just came out of nowhere ... I'm really excited about it."
"One of my coaches, John Brown, told me to call the Michigan Coach, Ron English. We talked for a while. And then a little later Coach English sent me a text message saying he was offering me a scholarship!"
Note: John Brown, who runs IE Gridiron in the northwest LA suburbs, was also a coach of former Pomona kids Germany and Cheathem.
As far as his other offers, Bolden said, "Washington and UTEP .. but Michigan! Man, I'm excited about that!"
"I've never been to Michigan, and I'd love to get out there for a game!"
As far as an official visit to Michigan, Omar said, "I'm definitely going to do that. I'm going to try to go during the season ... I'll be talking to my coaches and coordinating things with them."
Bolden reports a 2.0 GPA and took both the SAT and ACT in June. "My coach got the results and told me I did well," Bolden recently told Scout.com. "I didn't care about the score. I just asked him, 'Do I need to take it again' and he said, 'No'. That was a relief."
Bolden also camped at USC this summer ... the Trojans did not offer him at camp but would be a serious threat if they did offer.
