Bolden had recently switched sides of the ball. FSU head coach Mike Norvell announced at a recent practice that the former defensive back switched to the wide receiver position.
Bolden, a former four star prospect out of Wesley Chapel high school, was the 25th ranked cornerback in the 2018 recruiting class as well as the 43rd ranked player in Florida for that class.
