Five-star wing Brandon Boston Jr. trimmed his list down to four this evening, with Kentucky, Duke, Auburn, and Florida making the cut.
Expectation vs reality: Pick 1 is just a number
Saturday May 18, 2019
When called upon we always want to deliver. Whether it’s a deadline set by an employer, a favour from a best friend or to perform on sport’s biggest stage, it’s basic human instinct. From an NBA standpoint, pick No. 1 is the golden ticket. It’s a chance to revolutionise the franchise and give fans hope. […]

LISTEN: The best “Benny and the Cats” cover yet
Saturday November 03, 2018
We’ve heard a lot of covers of Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets” in honor of Benny Snell, but this one may be the best yet. Check out “Benny and the Cats,” with lyrics by William Scott Collins and vocals by Sam Jones: Well done, guys.
Ever since Kentucky offered the 6-foot-6 prospect back on February 23, most recruiting analysts felt it was a two-horse race between the Wildcats and Blue Devils, with the latter being the rumored favorite.
Over the last week, however, the Wildcats have received four consecutive Crystal Ball picks, including one from 247 Sports Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer and Duke insider Andrew Slater.

The previews have been written and the squads assembled. The A-League season launches into action on Friday. It should be the final incarnation of the ten-team competition.

At the recent Nike EYBL event in Atlanta, Boston told KSR that while his recruitment is open, there are four schools recruiting him the hardest right now.
“I would say Duke, Alabama, Kentucky, and Florida,” he said. “I think that’s it.”
Since then, however, the Tigers have recruited him as a package deal with AAU teammate and fellow five-star guard Sharife Cooper, something that intrigues Boston. This would explain Alabama being dropped from the final list and Auburn being added.
The five-star prospect added that he loves Kentucky because of how focused they are on winning in Lexington, something he is definitely interested in when he gets to college next year.
“I love how Coach Cal, all of the coaches and players, they all hold each other accountable,” he said. “They just want to win.”
In his official scouting report over on 247 Sports, Jerry Meyer highlights his length, athleticism, and “natural feel for the game.”
A long athlete who is still growing. Has good athleticism and a natural feel for the game. Lack of strength needs to improve, especially to be effective long term on the defensive end. Terrific scorer who is effective at all three levels. Has a nose for the ball and the length to be a dangerous rebounder. Has tremendous upside, which makes him a potential lottery pick.
