Thursday Quickies: BJ Boston Edition

New, 8 comments

The incoming freshman is already drawing preseason honors.

BJ Boston is expected to be one of the top players for the Kentucky Wildcats this season, and Boston might just be one of the top players in the SEC as well.

That’s why college basketball analyst Jon Rothstein recently placed Boston on his preseason first-team All SEC list.

Boston joined John Petty (Alabama), John Fulkerson (Tennessee), Trendon Watford (LSU) and Keyontae Johnson (Florida) as the projected top players in the SEC.

If you ask me, this projection is pretty solid, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Boston comes out as a legitimate contender for SEC Player of the Year. I believe he’s going to be a super talent for the Wildcats who will have some huge performances throughout the season.

For the rest of Rothstein’s SEC projections, you can find those here.
