Steve Jones of the Courier Journal is reporting that Holmes' sophomore guard James Bolden unofficially visited Xavier that past Saturday.
As first reported by The Road to Rupp's Hayley Schletker, Xavier head coach Chris Mack watched Bolden score 27 in a win over Covington Catholic and must have liked what he saw.
Jones spoke to the undefeated Bulldogs head coach Jason Booher about Bolden's play so far this season.
“He is a very athletic, scoring point guard who will only get better as his body fills out and gets stronger,” wrote Booher, who formerly coached 2010 Mr. Basketball winner Elisha Justice as Shelby Valley. “He handles the ball extremely well and is starting to get discovered by (NCAA) D1 coaches since this is his first year of starting varsity for us. Beetle is going to be another special point guard. Like Elisha was but very athletic and quick.”
James Bolden is another example of the young talent that is helping lead their team on The Road to Rupp.
