Former Michigan State commit Enoch Boakye tells ESPN he has heard from Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Kentucky, Arizona, USC, Washington State, Gonzaga and Duke since reopening his recruitment today.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) February 16, 2021
2022 center says reclassifying into 2021 is “still an option.”
Boakye, a four-star center from Ontario, Canada, reopened his recruitment on Monday. 247Sports composite rankings peg him as the No. 32 player and No. 4 center in the 2022 class but, as Borzello said, he is considering reclassifying to 2021.
Boakye’s 247Sports scouting report calls him a “talented center with an extremely high upside.” He is listed at 6-foot-10, 240 pounds.
Impressive frame with wide shoulders and long arms to go with pretty good hands for a young post. Has legitimate body control and ball skills for the position; can grab rebound and start break. Plus athlete and force around the basket due to sheer size and motor. Could improve his post moves and touch. Has upside as rim protector. Floor is college starter but has easy NBA upside.
Boakye told Sports Illustrated that he wants to “go to a place where I have the opportunity to make an impact right away. That’s the No. 1 goal of mine.”
Arizona has also reached out to Robert Morris transfer AJ Bramah, a 6-foot-7 senior who was averaging 21 points and 10 rebounds per game this season before entering the transfer portal.
UA has signed three 2021 recruits and is one over the 13-scholarship limit but Sean Miller said in November that the Wildcats would consider adding a frontcourt player to their class.
