Terrence Clarke now a top 5 recruit in 2020 class; says BJ Boston was key to his recruitment

Ace recruiter BJ Boston is on the case.

USA Today Sports and USA Basketball

When BJ Boston committed to Kentucky, it was the start of what’s shaping up to be a very special 2020 class for the Wildcats.

Getting Boston alone was a heck of a way to start a class, as he’s star in the making who has the potential to be Kentucky’s leading scorer in 2020-21.

Well, maybe not so much now that Kentucky has commitment from 2021 recruit Terrence Clarke, who also just announced he would reclassify into 2020.

Speaking of, Clarke is now the fourth-ranked player in 2020 at Rivals and 247 Sports. He was previously ranked second by Rivals and third by 247 in terms of his 2021 ranking.

It’s safe to say a backcourt tandem of Boston/Clarke will be one of the best in all of college basketball.

Turns out, getting Boston was pivotal in ultimately landing Clarke.

After Clarke made his commitment, he told reporters that a key in his recruitment was Kentucky landing Boston.

This wouldn’t be the first time that there was a big-time recruit that said he’d like to play with Boston in college. Jalen Green and Josh Christopher both discussed teaming up with Boston in college as well.

Boston may be a scoring guard/wing-type player, but he’s also regarded as a great passer with a high basketball IQ that attracts other great players, just as it has with Clarke.

Since Boston committed in late July, Kentucky has now added three more pledges in Clarke, four-star forward Cam’Ron Fetcher and four-star forward Lance Ware, which is good enough for the consensus No. 1 recruiting class in 2020 right now.

Maybe Boston is the recruiting ace Kentucky has badly needed to get their mojo back. Then again, was it ever really gone to begin with?
