Five-star shooting guard Brandon Boston received a scholarship offer from Kentucky after attending the Wildcats’ 80-53 victory over Auburn at Rupp Arena on Saturday.
Boston — a 6-foot-7 prospect from the Atlanta area — is the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He sat behind the UK bench Saturday against Auburn, another team that has been recruiting him hard in recent months. His offer list also includes Duke, Kansas, UCLA and Florida, among many others.
“He has plus size for the position, good length, impressive athletic ability and can really score the basketball,” 247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels told the Herald-Leader earlier in the week. “When you’re his size and can get to the rim, create off the bounce and make long-range jump shots, it’s pretty impressive. And he can do all of that.”
Boston is also Nike league teammates with five-star point guard Sharife Cooper, another one of the Wildcats’ top recruiting targets in the 2020 class.
