Bolden gains from Under Armour game 

January, 6, 2012
Michigan had two commitments playing in the Under Armour All-America game last night on ESPN. Linebacker Joe Bolden (Cincinnati/Colerain) and defensive back Terry Richardson (Detroit/Cass Tech) both started for their team and were out to prove themselves on the field.

Bolden, who is already a four-star and the sixth-ranked inside linebacker on ESPNU, might have done more than prove himself. All week scouts and reporters were raving about Bolden's ability and natural instincts at the position. Naturally, though, Bolden just went about his business and didn't think much of what he did throughout the week.

"I wanted to win, but obviously that didn't happen. It was neat to play with the nation's top talent," he said. "There was really nothing to it, if you're going to be down there you might as well practice and play hard."
