The Providence Friars offered 2020 Shooting Guard Brandon Boston over the weekend on Friday, January 26th. Boston is a 6’6” uber athletic guard who is ranked as a Top-25 prospect across basically every recruiting site out there (get your act together Rivals). Boston is a guy who shoots the lights out whenever he plays and his range extends all the way out to NBA range already.
Boston is currently ranked 15th in ESPN’s Top-25, 11th on 247Sports.com, and 27th on Rivals.com.
Weighing in at 160 pounds (I’ve seen sites list him as high as 180), Boston has said in interviews last year with 247Sports.com that his main goal in his development right now is to “get stronger and that’s it. I want to get better at everything but mainly just get stronger.” The more that Boston fills out his already imposing frame for a shooting guard, the more unstoppable his game will become.
Boston plays for Norcross High School in Norcross, Georgia and just recently joined the EYBL travel basketball team, Athletes of Tomorrow (AOT) located in Powder Springs, Georgia.
Boston has been raking up the college offers as of late and has been focusing in on Florida State and his relationship with FSU Assistant Coach Carlton Young. Besides Florida State and Providence, his current list of offers include Alabama (just offered), Auburn, Clemson, DePaul, Florida, Rutgers, Tulane, USF, Virginia Tech, and his home state Georgia Bulldogs and Georgia Tech Yellowjackets.
Let’s check out some highlights of Boston.
At first look, his game reminds me of a blend between two 2018 Providence commits David Duke and A.J. Reeves. His handle looks like Duke and his shooting looks like Reeves, but after watching some more of his highlights, I finally figured out who he reminds me of most. He looks like a young Brandon Ingram. The length and size are there and the flow of his game is almost a mirror of Ingram’s.
To be honest, I can’t tell if he goes by B.J. or Brandon. Some places list him as one name and some as the other but since his personal twitter says Brandon, so I’m going to call him Brandon too until I hear otherwise.
