Despite suffering an injury, Arizona Basketball freshman Kylan Boswell is ahead of schedule as he shined in his debut last night.
It was a great off-season for Tommy Lloyd and Arizona Basketball, not only as the Wildcats added several, last-minute recruits and transfers to the roster, but perhaps none were bigger than Kylan Boswell.
Originally a five-star commit in the class of 2023, Boswell announced just months ago that he would instead be joining the Wildcats a year earlier than originally anticipated.
The Compass Prep High School standout from Chandler, Arizona was a late addition to the class, but a welcome surprise for Lloyd and the Cats.
Coming in with a lot of hype, some of that anticipation had to be tempered. A foot injury in the Summer meant that Boswell could be sidelined for several months.
However, a quick recovery has Arizona Basketball freshman Kylan Boswell way ahead of schedule on his journey to 100 percent health.
Largely playing out of necessity, freshman Kylan Boswell made his “official” 2022-23 debut with the Wildcats on Monday evening, as Arizona took on Nicholls inside McKale Center.
The stocky 6-feet-1-inch guard logged 23 minutes and scored an impressive 8 points on 2-3 shooting (3-3 on free throws) while dishing five assists and grabbing one rebound. He did, however, turn the ball over four times. Overall, not bad for a 17-year-old making his first collegiate appearance.
Using frame, strength, athleticism, and craftiness, Boswell fared quite well with the Wildcats. And him playing this well this early into the season bodes well for his future in Tucson, and it also signals that health-wise, Boswell is WAY ahead of schedule!
Hopefully, the return of Courtney Ramey in a few games means Lloyd can slow play Boswell and bit and allow him to be even more impactful in the later parts of the season. Either way, Kylan showed a lot of promise in his first official game with the Cats, and big things are on the horizon!
