Ralph Bolden, Jr. is one of the top cover corners in the state of Georgia. The 5’9 185lb defensive back who has been timed as low as 4.45 in the 40 yard dash is also a valuable member of the Charlton County HS track team located in Folkston, Georgia.

"One of the great things about participating in track is that it gives me a chance to stay in shape while increasing my speed," says Bolden.

It also runs the risk of injury as Bolden pulled his hamstring last Thursday. The Charlton County Track team just won region and as they prepare for the State Championships which are set to begin next month they will do so without the services of their star 4x100, 200 and 100 meter speedster.

"I don’t think it’s anything serious and I should definitely be ready in the next couple of weeks just in time for the State meet but for now I need to give it a chance to heal."

On the recruiting front Ralph has plenty of options as he is talking to five schools in particular in Wake Forest, the Florida Gators, Georgia Tech, the Clemson Tigers and the South Carolina Gamecocks. To date he has been to camps at Wake Forest, UF and Georgia Tech and is planning trips to Columbia and Death Valley.

"The most important things to me will be my comfort level with the players, the coaching staff and the facilities."

Clemson and South Carolina like him at wide receiver while Wake Forest likes him at running back and Georgia Tech and Florida like him on the defensive side of the ball at defensive back. Ralph currently carries a 3.2 GPA and is scheduled to take the SAT on the weekend of May 5th.
