Some Alabama football players don't exactly look forward to media interviews. Then there's…
Bolton still feeling Alabama
"I had offers from all over," Bolton told JCFootball.com. "I could have gone anywhere, but I chose Alabama because of the coaching staff there and because of their tradition and I just loved it when I was there."
After failing to qualify, Alabama helped get Bolton placed at East Mississippi.
"I've had fun here, but I'm playing out of position right now," Bolton said. "They have me at strongside linebacker right now, but I'm still focused on playing receiver at a four-year school and that's what I plan to do."
As a freshman in 2008, Bolton had a solid first season at linebacker posting 65 tackles, 11 tackles-for-loss and one sack.
"They liked my size and speed and that's what has always impressed the teams that recruited me," Bolton said. "Everyone likes my athleticism and I understand how to play the game and I never stop hustling."
As far as recruiting, Bolton said he's hearing from schools, but there's only one school he's really thinking about.
"To me, right now it's all about Alabama," Bolton said. "I know a lot of other schools have talked to my coaches, but Alabama has already told me they want me back and I've told them I want to get there.
"I'm not really thinking about other schools right now. I'm focused on getting to Alabama."
However, no offer has been extended yet from the Tide.
"They have asked me several times about my classes and if I'm set to finish up in December," Bolton said. "I've got all the classes down and I'm doing the work, but they want to make sure before they offer me.
"Once that happens, it's pretty much over."
Wherever Bolton ends up he'll have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
