Coach Calipari and his staff have spent a lot of time recruiting Brandon Boston Jr.
Boston was on an unofficial visit on February 23rd of this year. Kentucky extended a scholarship offer that day. Since then the coaches have went to visit the 6-foot-6 shooting guard three times. Two of those visits were from Calipari himself.
Right now the 247 Sports Crystal Ball shows a 50/50 split between Kentucky and Duke:
A writer for a Duke sports affiliate of 247 Sports logged a pick today for Kentucky. Jerry Meyer, Director of Basketball Scouting for 247 Sports, also logged a pick this afternoon for Kentucky. If he were making his decision today, I’d say the Cats land him.
Boston Jr. ranks as the 8th overall prospect in the 2020 class. The shoot guard is the highest ranked prospect coming out of Georgia.
