Bolds is a redshirt freshman who didn’t see the field with the Nittany Lions. If he anticipated that happening again this fall, it’s understandable that he would want to shift his football career in a new direction.
The 6-foot-3, 276-pound defensive lineman was a 3-star recruit out of high school, according to 247Sports. Bolds played at Paramus Catholic in New Jersey. He ranked as the No. 45 defensive tackle in the Class of 2017.
Bolds was offered by 17 schools during his time of recruitment.
