According to an old video from 2 years ago that gave his age as 16 then, I think he will be 19 years old by the time he finishes this season at the prep school. That is already a year older than most high school grads, so if he is able to reclassify, that would put him right on track age-wise with most other prep school grads.

He is said to have a 1999 birthdate -
so he'd be between 18.5 - 10.5 years old in spring of 2018 *

I don't see any links to a video stream for either event.
We might be able to find some highlights after they are over.

Default Boya Commit

I am really glad we have a verbal from this young man. As I read, I think I understand that he wants to enter Bradley a year earlier. Is that right? Is it also right that he has a shot at doing so by reclassifying? It worries me that he would be playing out east some place and be noticed by the BCS schools out there and get influenced away. Any danger in that?

A high school or prep player cannot just reclassify a year earlier any time the want. They must complete all the necessary accredited school courses and get qualifying grades to satisfy the NCAA. It is my understanding that Ari Boya has a lot of work to do to get the necessary coursework done because he has not been in this country very long. But there is a chance he will get it done this year. If he does, he would be eligible to reclassify as a 2018 recruit. But, it is my understanding that he will not sign a National Letter of Intent this fall.

There is always a possibility of players reneging on their commitment before they sign, and even sometimes after they sign. It seems to happen more now than in the past. So it is always a possibility, though not likely.

I think this is why it will be to our advantage to land him for 2018 rather than chance another full year that someone else could lure him away as happened with Anthony Grundy, Justin Dentmon, and many other players who verballed then went elsewhere.

btw- I have some video of Aristide Boya playing in a big time prep tourney just this past weekend...
I will send the link to you pfcmsh, and if anyone else wants it, let me know... or just reply & post and I will send it to you.

Hopefully there is a next-man-up of quality. If Bradley doesn't sign someone this fall it may leave two spots to recruit quality players for in the spring. Most of us have admitted that it is hard for mid-major schools to get good players in the spring. It has happened but Bradley has been the only school not to sign someone this fall up to now.

I hope I am overly concerned but I believe it has been stated many times on here and other spots how hard it is too recruit in the spring.

Default Why Hard To Recruit In Spring

Why is it harder to recruit in the spring than in the fall for mid majors or just Bradley? Thanks.

Default Possible?

Is it possible that our talent target is very high and ever increasing for recruits as our talent level in place rises? Like higher all the time since Coach Wardle has been here. This might mean that if we had not increased our talent target that we would have had some recruits by now? Maybe it is a good thing?

I think you are right on target. But many of our coaches' better recruits are still available, plus it is likely they will zero in on a few more junior college kids to follow now. This 2018 class is deep with the kind of talent we need, and I think we'll still land a couple good ones.

I sure hope we get the good kids we want.

found a box score of his first game
SCS won 76-52
Aristide Boya played just 10 minutes as their coach played 15 different players all between 10-14 minutes each.
He had 2 pts, but 6 rebounds and 4 blocks in 10 minutes

Aristide Boya and his SCS squad knock off the #2 ranked Prep team in the US (Maxpreps has IMG at #6)
SCS 82 - IMG Academy 70

Here are some highlight -
Ari Boya is the big man #30 in white - very agile & runs the floor well!
and right at the end of the video as it fades out - Ari gets a slam dunk
https://twitter.com/SCShoops/status/931968921263108096


Here's the box score Boya with 3-4, 8 pts, 7 rebs, 1 asst, 2 steals zero turnovers in 25 minutes (the video looks like they play guard-oriented play)
One of their shooting guards, Koreem Ozier from RACINE, WISCONSIN, went for 26 pts & 13 rebs - hope we're keeping an eye on him, too!
https://twitter.com/NERRHoops





Boya is the big guy towards the left in back

another nice comment from one of the top national recruiting gurus...

"Bradley got a good one with Aristide Boya.
Hard playing center that rebounds & finishes.
Should find a way to contribute thanks to size and motor"
