Boatright to consider UConn, Sooners, UNLV
By Scott Powers
East Aurora senior point guard Ryan Boatright will look at Connecticut, Oklahoma and UNLV after de-committing from West Virginia last week, according to ESPN.com senior recruiting analyst Dave Telep.
Boatright committed to West Virginia on Oct. 18, but backed out later in the week after the Mountaineers took a commitment from another Class of 2011 point guard. Boatright is ranked 36th in the country by ESPN recruiting.
"Boatright's a Top 100 player and there aren't many of them remaining, especially point guards," Telep said. "It would make sense that every program searching for a scoring answer from their lead guard position would touch base. It sounds like UConn already has."
Boatright was an ESPNChicago.com All-Area selection last season after averaging 26 points, six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Boatright committed to USC as a eighth grader, but de-committed when coach Tim Floyd left the program.
