Elite safety recruit Bubba Bolden gets massive tattoo

By

Bubba Bolden is one of the top safeties in the Class of 2017 and plays for Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas), the two-time defending Super 25 champion. And you won’t miss him if he takes his shirt off.

Bolden, who decommitted from USC in mid-July, has gotten a lion tattooed across his chest, as he displayed on Twitter.

This leads to several questions we posed to Bolden:

  • Why a lion? “I’ve been planning this out for a while with my mom. The lion has been my favorite animal since I was little. I decided to get it because my mom says that I am the man, the one that will support my family, the one that will help my family out with whatever and I will protect my family. My mom says that I show my inner beast when I’m on the field and that’s when the lion really comes out.”
  • How long did it take? “Nine hours.”
  • Um, did it hurt? “Yeah, it hurt. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone, but if they want it, they can try it.”

RECRUITING: Who were the big winners in July?

Bolden, who already has accepted an invitation to the Army All-American Bowl, has 17 reported scholarship offers. Top247 ranks him as the No 7 safety in the Class of 2017 and the No. 2 player in the state of Nevada.
