Summary:
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.
