Boston Stanton, a Combo Guard who plays for Team Knight Elite 17U, is a shot maker. A member of the 2021 class who attends East High School in Denver, CO, continuously made big shots down the stretch against a good Grassroots Sizzle team in a back-and-forth matchup. He is efficient from the 3pt line either off the dribble or on the catch, but he can also put it on the deck with his 1-2 dribble pull-ups inside the arch.
Boston has some bounce coming towards the rim, too. It’s that sneaky bounce that defenders aren’t necessarily ready for, because his style of play isn’t above the rim. He’s more of a shot maker, and steady hand with the ball to control the flow of the game for his teammates. That might be one of the things that stands out most about Boston… he’s smart with the basketball, doesn’t get sped up, and plays with a lot of control. He’s a coach out on the floor the way he chats it up with this teammates, directs traffic and always picking his guys up.
Boston has offers from Dartmouth, Northern Colorado, and Denver, there will be more to add to that list before too long.
