Kylan Boswell continues to play collegiate basketball in familiar places. Coming out of high school in the Phoenix metro area, he committed to Arizona. Now, he's returning to Champaign-Urbana — the town he was born and raised in up through middle school — to play for Illinois and head coach Brad Underwood.

Underwood narrowly missed out on Boswell back in 2022; Arizona, UNLV, and Illinois were the three schools the former five-star guard was selecting from. UNLV seemed like the odd man out, and it was more of a two-man race in practice. Instead of returning to his hometown, Boswell elected to stay in the state where he played his high school ball.
