ESPN’s new Top 100 for the 2020 class is out, and future Kentucky Wildcat BJ Boston made a significant jump. The five-star small forward rose from No. 12 to No. 6, proof of what Paul Biancardi calls an incredible season at Sierra Canyon.
“A true three-level bucket maker, not many have had a better senior season than Boston. He has been scoring at a high clip in his season at Sierra Canyon, and those performances haves been consistent. Boston has been dynamic in the areas of scoring, playmaking and hitting the offensive glass, and what goes unnoticed is his impressive wingspan and how he utilizes it to gain deflections. One of the better finishers in the class when it comes to the transition game, Boston displays body control, bounce and length. He has an extra-long frame with explosive bounce and developed ball skills.”
Former Kentucky target Jalen Green is the No. 1 player in the class, followed by Evan Mobley (USC), Cade Cunningham (Oklahoma State), Scottie Barnes (Florida State), and Jalen Suggs (Gonzaga).

On another recruiting note, the rosters for the McDonald’s All-American Game will be unveiled at 3 p.m. on “The Jump” on ESPN. I have a feeling we’ll see more than a few future Cats on the list.
