Although very open in his recruitment, 2009 five-star guard Kenny Boynton does have a few schools that standout at this point. But the most pressing issue for Boynton is taking his game to a higher level.
"Kenny doesn't have a leader and is very open in his recruitment," said Boynton's travel team coach Kenny Gillion of Team Breakdown. "Texas, Ohio State, Duke and Florida are schools that he mentions a lot as the ones showing him a lot of interest.
"Everyone assumed Kenny was a done deal for Florida when Vargas committed there. And when Duke started recruiting him, everyone said that he was a lock for Duke. I can tell you this is just not the case."
What is a definite is that Boynton, 6-foot-2, 170-pounds from Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage High School, is diligently working to become more of a point guard than just a scoring guard.
"He wants to play point guard at the next level," said Gillion. "Every year he has gotten better and added something to his game. The focus right now is to develop more as a point guard."
Boynton, ranked the No. 7 prospect in the class of 2009, just earned MVP honors last weekend at Team Breakdown's Battle of the Rankings.
Kenny Boynton scouting report:
Speedy with the ball, Boynton is a scoring machine. With an extremely quick pull up jumper from deep range and a floater in the lane, he can get his shot off at will. Boynton also shoots the ball coming off screens. Physically strong and quick laterally as well, he is also a tough defender. At 6-foot-2, Boynton has the ball handling skills for the point guard position but is in the process of becoming more of a distributor of the basketball.
