Brandon Boston Jr. verbally committed to the University of Kentucky on Saturday.
"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 told Evan Daniels of 247Sports.
The 5-star point guard is transferring from Norcross High School in Atlanta to California's Sierra Canyon High School for his senior season. He is ranked the 10th-best recruit in his class and the second-best shooting guard, according to 247Sports.
247Sports' Chris Fisher wrote in his scouting report of the 6'6", 175-pound prospect:
"A long athlete who is still growing. Has good athleticism and a natural feel for the game. Lack of strength needs to improve, especially to be effective long-term on the defensive end. Terrific scorer who is effective at all three levels. Has a nose for the ball and the length to be a dangerous rebounder. Has tremendous upside, which makes him a potential lottery pick."
After a January game against Roselle Catholic in the Hoophall Classic, Boston told MassLive.com's Alexandra Francisco that the programs recruiting him "want me to be a primary scorer and to go in there and be the best I can be."
He added: "A lot of people my size can't really dribble the ball like I can. That's a separation from them I have."
On May 18, Boston announced on Instagram that he had narrowed his recruitment to four teams: Kentucky, Duke, Auburn and Florida.
Fellow 5-star recruit Sharife Cooper told Kentucky Sports Radio (h/t SBNation's A Sea of Blue) the same month that he and his AAU teammate "talk about [teaming up in college] all the time." Now, Calipari has one half of the equation locked in.
