Draft Notes

Brandon Boston Jr. is one of the smoothest scorers to come along since Brandon Ingram, and he’s built in the same mold. Boston has great handles, which allows him to get anywhere he wants on the court and his jump shot is a thing of beauty. He’s got great size for a shooting guard and lots of length.

His ability to break defenders down with the dribble is a thing of beauty. He’s got handles like a point guard and a lot of shake n bake moves. He can cross the defender over or use a quick behind the back dribble to change directions and blow by his man.

His shooting release is as smooth as it gets and he’s a truly special three point shooter.

Boston is still very thin and lacking strength but this won’t be a problem for long, as he’s likely to fill out his frame over the next couple of years. He holds is own on the defensive end and gives good effort and has a winning attitude.

It’s hard to imagine a scenario where Brandon isn’t a 20ppg scorer in the league in a few years.

Boston is part of a really special recruiting class for Kentucky, which will put them in position to challenge for a national championship.
