Boogie Fland, a 6-foot-3 point guard out of Archbishop Stepinac has committed to the Kentucky. The five-star prospect choose the Wildcats over Indiana and Alabama.
Fland told ESPN “The visit played a big part in my decision.” “It was fantastic. It blew me away. The setup there is incredible; the gym is right next to the housing lodge. My host was D.J. Wagner We played USA Basketball together and bonded. On my visit, I watched practice and workouts. You go against the best every day, and that’s what I want.”
“He is a Hall of Fame coach who cares about his players.” “When he gave his Hall of Fame speech, his former players and coaches were up on the stage with him. He only wants the best for you. Off the court, he is a funny guy. He has a lot of jokes, and they are spot on.” “He told me this decision was like a marriage. You need to say, ‘I do.'”
Fland is the second commit for Kentucky, joining four-star center Somto Cyril from the Class of 2024. What the wildcats will see from Fland is a player who can handle the ball real well and is a great scorer. Also, he gets his teammates involved and make the play to the highest level. He averaged 14 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this year when playing for the PSA Cardinals travel basketball team on the Nike EYBL circuit this past summer.
