The highest rated player left on the board in California took himself off the board as Omar Bolden, a four-star cornerback from Ontario (Calif.) Colony, picked Arizona State over Oregon State and USC on FSN's High School Spotlight...

Ontario (Calif.) Colony cornerback Omar Bolden (5-11, 195), had three hats in front of him on Wednesday night during the FSN High School Spotlight: Washington, Oregon State and USC.

After glossing over each of the three hats in front of him, Bolden pulled out an Arizona State hat and put it on.

"I'm going to be an Arizona State Sun Devil", said Bolden. "Having the opportunity to come in and play early and be successful".

Bolden's commitment to the Sun Devils gives them their sixth four-star prospect in this class.

It also put the capper on a strong close for Dennis Erickson's first class, which saw him get four California prospects as his last additions to the squad.

"I like running back, and I like DB, I love football," said Bolden.

An excellent athlete, Bolden had some of the best test marks across the board at the Los Angeles Scout.com Combine in May, running a combine-best 4.35.

Bolden was named CIF Offensive Player of the Year, after rushing for 2,003 yards and 26 touchdowns. Defensively, he had 80 tackles, two blocked punts and one interception.
