Marques Bolden

  • Legit size for a center
  • Nice mobility for a big man
  • Nice back to the basket game
  • Good feet and nice hands to catch in traffic
  • Could be an elite shot blocker
  • He defends the post well
  • Solid rebounder with the potential to be elite if he gets more aggressive

  • Weaknesses
  • He hasn't shown the ability to be the main option
  • He has to develop a couple more go to moves
  • I need to see him show more than a layup or hook shot on the offensive end
  • He has to show more energy and effort
  • He doesn't do anything great at the moment, its all potential.
  • He lacks elite athleticism which will hurt him at the next level

  • Bottom Line
  • Unless he shows significant development as a freshman at Duke, he doesn't appear to be someone who is going to be an elite player. He seems to be going down the path of backup center who can come in, make a few shots, grab a few boards, and block a shot. If you rank on potential he is sky high, if you rank on ability he is middle of the road.
