The 6'10, 210-pound forward from Sumter, S.C., played in only four games as a true freshman in 2012-13, logging five minutes. His only counting stat on the season was one missed field goal. He neither scored nor rebounded nor did anything else in limited action.
Bolden will be ineligible to play for Bruce Weber in the upcoming season, but he'll have three seasons of eligibility remaining when he hits the court for the 2014-15 season. Rivals.com rated him the No. 81 overall prospect in the Class of 2012 out of the Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem, N.C. There, he played alongside point guard Jevon Thomas, one of Weber's incoming freshmen.
Weber now has seven players signed for his incoming class in his second year as the Kansas State coach. The class includes five incoming freshmen, Bolden and Maine Black Bears transfer guard Justin Edwards.
