Five-Star Guard Brandon Boston Jr. Commits to Kentucky

John Calipari has picked up his first commitment in the 2020 recruiting class.

Evan Daniels reports five-star guard Brandon Boston Jr. committed to Kentucky while completing his official visit in Lexington. Boston is the No. 10 player overall and the second-ranked shooting guard in the 2020 class.

“I appreciated everybody recruiting me, but I’m going to Kentucky and I picked them because I think it’s what best fits me,” Boston said.

Boston picked UK over Duke, Auburn and Florida, thanks to his relationship with UK’s coaches “They said I could showcase my whole game and get better.” He added,  “They are really good coaches. They are good to talk to. They have a lot of information that I need.”

In 18 games on Nike EYBL circuit Boston averaged 22.8 points (52.1 FG%), 8.1 rebounds and 3.2 assists a game. Boston initially planned on waiting a few more weeks to commit, but the visit went so well, he pulled the trigger before leaving Lexington.

Kentucky’s Twitter account celebrated accordingly.

      I think it is great that he chose UK but the theme here is UK fans are always excited about the next year and less about the one yet to be played.

      As of right now there isn’t much we can worry about with the up coming season. So yeah I’m excited that we landed an early 2020 commit.

    Wait a minute, I thought his transferring to play with Bronny meant UK had no chance? My sources (bother and a couple of cousins, but they’re reliable!) say to look out because our 2020 class will go down as one of the best ever! This is just the beginning folks, buckle up!



    • BobbyBlue

      IMO —No way Cunningham is still an option— Course he will continue to list UK so he can sometime in the future brag “ yeah I could have signed with Ky “
      I think Nix is in the pecking order behind Christopher, and Green and maybe even Cooper. But what do I know— I am shocked Boston commited much less this early.



    • UKinMKY

      Cunningham hasn’t been an option since OK State hired his brother. Dude is just trying to build his hype at this point.



  19. Kojohnson

    He will bring nix, green or both. Cunningham still an option. Cliff and Todd are locks. Dante is another close one. I hope Nix or Cunningham come though.

      Christopher will commit next



    • mashman 93
      3:04 pm July 27, 2019 Permalink

      Christopher, Green, Todd, and Boston were the four I was hoping Cal would land. For the record I believe this class will be epic and we land all four.



    • StuckinLville
      4:14 pm July 27, 2019 Permalink

      I believe we do too and i believe Fletcher commits as well. We are going to lose a lot after this season so there will be several in this class.

      I’d prefer Nix. Best pure point in high school. Him with Boston, Green/Christopher, Todd, and Dante/Cliff, will elevate everyone’s game.



    • BobbyBlue

      Fletcher could be next and he will visit this week, and Evan Daniels is predicting for UK

      Fletcher will be the next to commit ?%

    Is this the same guy that transferred to play with LeBron’s son recently and several folks on here list their mind? God, I hope it is.

    Much needed pick-up and the best part is he picked Kentucky over Duke. Hopefully, that trend will continue!

    Let’s see… if Coach Process’s PROCESS continues to hold true:

    A) We won’t win a National Championship with this kid on our campus…

    B). Boston will be a top Ten NBA Draft Pick..

    C). and Coach Process will declare it “the greatest .. biggest… most fantastic day… in Kentucky Basketball History….

    LOL then rinse repeat the next year after that…

    ?

    GO BIG BLUE!
