Bolden Making His Case

The Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) receiver, Victor Bolden, is making a case for more offers this spring...

Few receivers in the West are as explosive as Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos' Victor Bolden, a 5-9.5, 165-pound speedster.

While Bolden has just a couple of offers, from Hawaii and Eastern Washinton, several other schools are wanting to get him into camp to take a closer look at him.

Last weekend, Bolden went to Berkeley to camp at California, and felt like he left a good impression on the coaches.

"Cal was great, I loved the campus, the coaches are great, and I had a fun time at the camp," said Bolden. "I feel like I did enough to put in for an offer, so now it's all in their hands. I can't control if they offer me, I just did what I had to do."

Bolden said he didn't get a real feel from the Bears coaches where he stood, but hopes to hear from them soon, especially with some family ties to Cal.

"They didn't really give me an indication but I thought I did really good at the camp, and they said we'll be in touch," said Bolden. "My sister is already committed to Cal for soccer."

Bolden's sister, Victoria, is one of the premier underclass soccer players in the country, a 2014 graduate, who just completed her sophomore year, and has committed to the Bears. The opportunity for the two of them to go to school together is something Bolden would love.

"Going to school with her is something that is really intriguing and I love the campus, so Cal is definitely up there," said Bolden.

Bolden is planning a busy rest of June, with three more camps on the docket.

"I'm going to USC this weekend for their camp, to the Oregon State camp at Fullerton College and then the UCLA camp on the 22nd," said Bolden. "I might do a couple more but those are the ones I know for sure. Hopefully I can open some eyes at the USC and UCLA and Oregon State camps."

Bolden said he thought Cal could be next to offer, and that Washington State is also picking up their interest.

"Another school that could be offering is Washington State," said Bolden. "Their offense is one I could definitely see myself in. If you open up the field, I can really attack you through the air and hurt the defense with my speed, so I know Washington State would be a good offense to be in."

But Bolden said he's not sure when those offers could come.

"At this point, I'm not sure, because a lot of schools are on the same page, so I'm just being patient," said Bolden.

Academically, Bolden has a 3.4 GPA and scored a 1500 on the SAT.
