Marques Bolden is eager for his first trip to New York. That it includes playing in the Jordan Brand Classic is even better.

“Getting a chance to play in Brooklyn and obviously, I’ve never been there. And then playing in an NBA arena like the Barclays Center, that’s a big deal,” he said. “It’s a great feeling to be playing in the Jordan Brand Classic.”

Bolden, ranked No. 20 by ESPN, received an honorary banner during the Jordan Brand Classic Senior Tour presented by American Family Insurance at his school, DeSoto in Texas. The Jordan Brand Classic is April 15.

Bolden, who is uncommitted, will eventually pick between Duke, Kentucky, Oklahoma and TCU.

He is averaging 25 points and 15 rebounds for the Eagles.
