Updated on 9/4/2020. Written by Alan Lu.
Projected Draft Range: Lottery
Solid shooter, especially from deep
Solid scorer off the dribble
Decent low post scorer
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Decent rebounder for his size
Fairly good defender that can get steals
Can be too scoring focused on offense
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Can be unfocused defensively
Needs to add strength
Brandon Boston Jr. is an athletic, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He is a versatile scorer that has a strong pull-up game, as he especially can knock down threes, and he also can back down his man to score in the post.
He also is a good athlete that can make spectacular plays on both sides of the ball, but he will need to be a more focused defender in games. He is a high upside prospect that could make an immediate impact at Kentucky, and he projects to be a likely lottery pick in 2021.
