The 5-10 guard talks about USC and all the high schools that have been after him...
On USC: "USC has been my number two school forever. North Carolina was number one. Los Angeles is great and the weather and campus are beautiful."
On Tim Floyd: "He's a good guy. He's a great coach. He's real. He tells you what you're doing right and what you're doing wrong."
Boatright's mom and aunts were track stars at various Aurora high schools. His grandfather Tom runs the Aurora Flyers track club. Boatright's father, Mike McAllister played basketball at East Aurora. Boatright lives on the West side of Aurora with his mother.
Like most of the top-tier eighth grade players, Boatright has been dealing with two recruitments this summer: high school and college.
"I haven't gotten stressed out yet, but it's been tough," Boatright said. "When I found out O.J. May was going to USC, that meant a lot. He's one of my favorite players. It was nice to choose the college and get half of this finished. My mom taught me how to stay calm and focused they told me this was gonna come it's a lot of pressure."
