Today was a big day in the Kentucky Basketball recruiting world as Cam’Ron Fletcher became a Wildcat. Fletcher is now the second commit for next year’s recruiting class for Coach Cal as Brandon Boston Jr. committed just a little over a week ago.
Even though it is WAY early. This should bring some comfort and momentum to the 2020-21 season. It also could ultimately be another title run for the Cats. Let’s discuss how these two could work together.
This style of offense between these two prospects will make them one of the best duos possibly in the 2020-21 season. As Boston grows in his own this next season – with the addition of Fletcher – the pick-and-roll would be deadly.
This offense is a simple one that can gradually be implemented. It is also one of Cal’s signature offenses that he has used over the years with athletic big men and guards. One duo that comes up in mind is the 2016-17 season with De’Aaron Fox and Bam Adebayo. An offense like this could fear anyone in the country.
What would Cam’Ron Fletcher bring to this style of offense?
First things first, Fletcher has to have something against basketball rims because he slams it with a passion that few do.
Fletcher’s vertical is something that could bring back lob city back to it’s Old Kentucky Home. Like all big men going into college, there is a learning curve, but the addition of Fletcher with Boston Jr. would be stellar.
What would Brandon Boston Jr. bring to this style of offense?
Boston Jr. being a lengthy guard is amazing to what this could bring. Not only would he be able to dish it to Fletcher for the easy two, but this can separate himself for easy mid-range and three-point jumpers. His way to attack the paint and finish it with authority helps as well and can put many “W’s” in the win column for the Cats in 2020-21.
This duo is just the start of the next recruiting class for Kentucky and a great start. Now, is it early? Very much so but this is something the BBN should look forward to as Cal in back-to-back weeks has gotten his players, his way.
