Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies.

Today’s big news is yesterday’s big news -- the commitment of Brandon “B.J.” Boston, currently ranked #10 in the 247Sports Composite.

Boston tells Kyle Boone of CBS Sports that he thinks Kentucky has the culture that fits him best. He is considered a gifted scorer at the wing and was the MVP of EYBL Dallas.

Boston is a good shooter out to the three point line, but the most interesting part of his game, from what I have seen, is his handle. For a player his size, he is an extremely gifted ballhandler and a very capable passer. Scoring aside, he really is skilled with the ball in his hands and runs the floor very well.

He’s a good athlete but hardly a Zion Williamson. He needs to gain considerable weight before taking the floor in college, but Boston is a great first recruit for 2020.
