Injuries have hampered the first two years of Marques Bolden’s college career. The former five-star prospect has had limited production after arriving at Duke with high expectations, but his head coach feels his fortunes are about to change.

“We feel like Marques Bolden will be one of the best big men in the country next season,” Mike Krzyzewski said Monday on the College Hoops Today Podcast. “If you look at his career, he’s always battled injuries. We’re hopeful that now that he’s healthy, he’s going to have a heck of a season for us.”

Bolden averaged 3.9 points and 3.6 rebounds last season as a sophomore.

Duke is currently ranked seventh in the FRS Preseason Top 25.
