It’s still early, but some prospects in the 2020 class have already started to establish themselves as legitimate high-major recruits worthy of lofty rankings when the time comes. One of those prospects is Brandon Boston, a 6-foot-6 wing from Norcross High School in Georgia.

The long and lanky Georgia native has already reeled in scholarship offers from five high-major programs in Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Rutgers and Virginia Tech. Boston took an unofficial visit to Georgia on Sunday and made a trip up to Kentucky a couple of weeks ago.

IN HIS OWN WORDS

Boston talked about some of his offers and mentioned some schools he would like to hear from.

Auburn: “I like their coaching staff. They have good coaches and good players. They should be pretty good this year.”

Georgia: “Georgia was really cool. They just showed me around up there and told me I could be a good player. Rayshaun Hammonds is up there and that’s my boy. He just told me to keep working.”

Georgia Tech: “I don’t know much about them yet. I’m going to be there soon for a visit. I’ve talked to them a little bit. He was just telling me about how they develop players there.”

On schools he would like to hear from: “Kentucky and Florida State. I visited Kentucky a couple weeks ago. I just like how they get players to the league. With Florida State, I think I could fit in their system well. They had Jonathan Isaac, and I think I play a little like him.”

RIVALS' REACTION

Boston is going to be one of the most highly-recruited players in Georgia in the 2020 class. He already have five Power Five offers and hasn’t even played a game in his sophomore season yet. The schools located closest to him, Auburn, Georgia, and Georgia Tech, have made a strong impression early, but this could be one where all the national powers get involved. Kentucky is already tracking his progress, and it won’t be long before other bluebloods join them in doing so.
