Five-star SG Brandon Boston, Jr is on his official visit to the University of Florida. Boston made it to campus in time to see the Gators take on #3 Tennessee this evening.
The 6’7, Class of 2020 recruit, is being joined in campus by Florida signee, Tre Mann and The Rock School sophomore Lynn Kidd, per Corey Evans of Rivals.com.
But is there more to this visit than meets the eye?
Its not very often that a highly rated prospect takes all of his official visits during his junior year in high school. Boston has had official stops at Alabama, Auburn, and Duke, but would also like to take a trip to Ohio this spring.
A recruit taking all his OV’s before his senior year is really suspicious to me, perhaps Mike White is aiming for reclassification. I reached out to Corey Evans of Rivals.com to confirm the rumors of a possible reclassification, however have received no response in time for the publication of the article, therefore I can not confirm that Boston is reclassifying.
But if I’m Florida, and I’m Mike White, that’s exactly how I am recruiting him, as a 2019 recruit. I would insist that he could be a part of something special, the best recruiting class in Florida history. Boston is considered a top-10 recruit in the nation, and could join five stars Scottie Lewis and Tre Mann, and four star Omar Payne in Mike White’s 2019 dream class.
Note: With Chase Johnson transferring to Dayton earlier this week, Florida has one open scholarship for the 2019 recruiting cycle.
Florida is considered to be a serious contender to land the services of Brandon Boston, Chomp Talk will continue to track this story and keep you up to date on the situation as it develops.
