The Brandon Boston hype train is rolling full steam ahead with absolutely no signs of slowing down.

It seems like just about every few days the incoming freshman is receiving another award or posting an impressive video of himself working out as he prepares to make his way to Lexington. There is no doubt that the Big Blue Nation has high-hopes for Kentucky’s high-rated recruit since 2015.

Most recently, Boston was just named a Slam All-American — another trophy in his case for what has been an incredibly decorated off season for the #1 shooting guard in the class of 2020.

Along with his Slam All-American nod, Boston was also named the Gatorade National Player of Year in California, a McDonald’s All-American and a Naismith first team All-American. Additionally he was selected to play in the Jordan Brand Classic and the Iverson Brand Classic even though the events never took place due to COVID-19.

Nearly every honor that can be bestowed on a high school basketball player has been sent BJ Boston’s way.

Most experts are projecting him to be a major impact player in college basketball and a likely lottery pick in the 2021 NBA draft, with many believing he has top-five pick potential. One thing that should really excite Kentucky fans is the fact Boston plays shooting guard, which will in theory, allow him to dominate the ball and take control of a game.

A common theme that comes up when discussing Boston’s game is his killer instinct and reputation for rising to the moment. He played at Sierra Canyon High School in California with a host of big-time recruits, so he is quite familiar with performing under the bright lights.

It goes without saying that pairing a stud like Boston with another big guard in Terrence Clarke could be the recipe to cut some nets down this spring.
