The Kentucky coaching staff may be looking to close out the class of 2019 with a bang, but that’s not stopping them from putting the full-court press on prospects in the class of 2020.

According to Evan Daniels of 247 Sports, Kentucky will be in this evening to watch five-star guard Brandon “BJ” Boston less than a week after offering him a scholarship.
Kentucky is expected to watch Brandon Boston this evening. The Wildcats recently offered the five-star wing a scholarship.

Boston, a 6-foot-7 shooting guard out of Norcross High School, was in Lexington on an unofficial visit to see Kentucky defeat Auburn 80-53.
Right before the elite scorer headed home, Kentucky head coach John Calipari extended an offer, just the ninth player and the second shooting guard in the class of 2020 to receive a scholarship.

Here is the list of Kentucky’s confirmed offers in the class of 2020:
- Five-star combo guard RJ Hampton
- Five-star point guard Jeremy Roach
- Five-star point guard Sharife Cooper
- Five-star shooting guard BJ Boston
- Five-star shooting guard Jalen Green
- Five-star small forward Jalen Johnson
- Five-star small forward Scottie Barnes

The Duke Blue Devils currently hold 100 percent of Crystal Ball predictions for the consensus top-15 guard on 247 Sports, including picks from recruiting experts Jerry Meyer and Andrew Slater. Auburn is also expected to be a major contender in this recruitment.
With Kentucky making a strong push, though, it’d be silly to think they won’t be right in the thick of things when we get to the heat of Boston’s recruitment.
Here are just a few of his long list of impressive highlight tapes:
Come on down, young fella.
