Bolden is the only transfer on the offensive side of the ball who enrolled this summer at Texas among the four portal guys and eight total summer enrollees. And it didn't take long for Bolden to make a big impression on those in and around the program at the outset of summer workouts.

Orangebloods reported (subscriber content) that Bolden is "seriously turning heads" after the first week of summer workouts. Bolden has impressed the coaching staff with the speed and agility he's shown just in the first few days of summer conditioning and 7-on-7 work.

You know that Bolden has made a big-time impression on his teammates and the coaches when the defensive backs are reportedly talking about how hard he is to cover and contest in the open field.

It also sounds like Bolden is easily one of the fastest and quickest Longhorns players at the skill positions this summer. He's clearly made some noise in an otherwise competitive wide receiver room where reps could be hard to come by for some of these guys who are so talented but might not be in that top group of four or five in the rotation for Sarkisian this coming fall.

Bolden is doing exactly what he needs to prove that he deserves his fair share of touches on offense this upcoming season in the SEC, regardless if they come out of the backfield or lined up out wide or in the slot as a receiver.
