As with so many five-star players, Brandon Boston Jr.’s recruitment is seen by many to be a showdown between Duke and Kentucky.
Mike Krzyzewski has often gotten the best of John Calipari on the trail as of late, but the Wildcats are seen as the favorite by the majority of recruiting analysts that have logged predictions with 247Sports‘ crystal ball.
Five of the six predictions have him heading to Lexington, with Duke receiving the lone dissenting prediction.
The site has Boston as the No. 8 overall in the country, and third among shooting guards. He’s the top player in Georgia for the 2020 recruiting class.
Auburn, Florida, and Kentucky are all still seeking their first commitments of the 2020 recruiting cycle. Duke has five-star guard Jeremy Roach pledged, which gives the Blue Devils the fourth-best class early on, per 247’s composite rankings.
