Three-star running back/cornerback Omar Bolden (5-11, 187, 4.4) from Ontario (Calif.) Colony had an outstanding senior season that saw him lead his school to his Section CIF championship.
Not only is Bolden a part of his school's first CIF championship, but until this season, Colony never made it past the first round of the playoffs.
Though Bolden was a marked man in the championship game, he still rushed for 80 yards and had 45 receiving yards in Colony's 16-13 hard fought victory over Elsinore.
Bolden made his presence felt on both sides of the ball during the season of 2006.
As a running back, Bolden rushed for 2,003 yards and 25 touchdowns with a long run of 78 yards. Out of the backfield, Bolden caught nine passes for 150 yards and one more touchdown.
On the defensive side of the ball, Bolden was a jack-of-all-trades lining up at cornerback, safety and linebacker racking up 77 tackles, three sacks, one deflected pass and one blocked punt.
The prevailing wisdom is Bolden will line up at cornerback on the next level.
On the recruiting front, Bolden returned from his first visit this past weekend to Washington State.
"The trip was good and it went well," Bolden said. "It wasn't for me though. I'm used to the city."
One visit that Bolden is looking forward to is Washington as the Huskies did a nice job in an in house visit with Bolden.
"I'm looking forward to visiting Washington," Bolden said. "I want to see everything that Washington brought to my house during my home visit and it was perfect. Now I want to see it in person.
Bolden will visit Washington on January 5th. He will visit Nebraska on January 12th.
"My coach went to Nebraska so he's going to tell me more about the school this week," Bolden said. "Nebraska will be having their home visit this week."
"I'm not going to make up my mind until I take all my trips," Bolden said. "I'm very open to new schools coming in late."
Bolden has offers on the table from Michigan, Nebraska, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, UTEP and UNLV.
Bolden missed four games as a junior due to an injury, but he still earned all-league honors and was his team's MVP when he rushed for 656 yards and scored five touchdowns while averaging 7.9 yards per carry.
While playing linebacker on defense, Bolden racked up 40 tackles, one pick and one sack.
As a sophomore, Bolden was an all-state performer.
Bolden has been selected by Rivals.com to play in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl to be played in Fort Lauderdale to be played on January 4th.
