Rated as one of the top 200 players in the 2010 recruiting class, Robert Bolden committed to Penn State University where he looks to take over the quarterback slot for the Nittany Lions.
Bolden could possibly be the perfect anecdote for a PSU offense that needs quite a rebuilding effort after losing impact seniors like Daryll Clark. Built in many ways like Clark, Bolden has an effortless throwing motion and has great velocity on quick passes.
While Bolden is very agile and can effectively throw even as he’s on the run, he has to work on his footwork before becoming a star at the next level. His leg power is another area where he could improve so that he is able to use his whole body to make deeper throws.
One of the most impressive traits Bolden can bring to PSU next year is his vision downfield and his impeccable accuracy. On nearly every play greater than 30 yards, Robert seemed to perfectly place the ball to his wideouts with precision I haven’t seen from many quarterbacks in the class of 2010.
He may not have the strongest arm to make the deeper throws quite yet, but with his superior touch on his passes and his intellect there is definitely a chance for him to become a great quarterback in the Big Ten. With hard work and the willingness to improve, Robert Bolden should become the next great PSU quarterback in very quick time.
