Kentucky signee BJ Boston is one of just five finalists to take home the 2020 Naismith High School Trophy. The prestigious honor is awarded to the nation’s top player each year.
The UK signee joins Cade Cunningham (Oklahoma State), Evan Mobley (USC), Jalen Suggs (Gonzaga) and Jalen Romande (Undecided) as the Naismith’s top five high school basketball players of 2020.
Boston is a consensus five-star prospect from California who currently attends Sierra Canyon High School.
Currently, Boston is rated as the fourth-best prospect in the entire nation for 2020 by Rivals and headlines a UK class that currently ranks as the best in the country.
If Boston were to win the award he’d join Ron Mercer (1995) as the only Kentucky Wildcats to earn the honor.
The Atlanta Tipoff Club will unveil the winner on March 10.
