Arizona coach Tommy Lloyd announced that Kylan Boswell will graduate high school and reclassify to join the Wildcats starting with the 2022-23 season.
“Kylan is a talented basketball player, but he is also a tremendous student and comes from an amazing family that we are excited to welcome into the Arizona Basketball family,” Lloyd said in a statement released by the university. “He will be a great addition to our program, and we look forward to helping him take the next steps in his basketball career.”
Boswell, originally from Champaign, Ill., was ranked in the top 25 nationally for the 2023 recruiting class and is one of the top point guards in his class while playing at AZ Compass Prep in Chandler this past season. He helped the Dragons advance to the GEIGO National Championship Tournament and finish the year with a 25-5 record.
Prior to that, he helped Centennial in Corona, Calif., win the CIF Open Division championship over Sierra Canyon as a sophomore, scoring 26 points – including six 3-pointers – in the title game.
His experience on the court also extends internationally, as he helped USA Basketball win the FIBA U16 Americas Championship in Xalapa, Mexico, last summer. Over the six games, Boswell averaged 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists (27 assists to seven turnovers) on his way to claiming the gold medal. He was also invited to attend training camp with USA Basketball earlier this summer for the U17 World Cup team.
Boswell joins a group of incoming players that includes freshmen Dylan Anderson, Filip Borovicanin and Henri Veesaar along with transfers Courtney Ramey and Cedric Henderson Jr.
Arizona’s known roster as of now for 2022-23 includes 19 players, seven of whom are walk-ons. That includes newcomers Luc Krystkowiak (Larry’s son) and Gonzaga transfer Matthew Lang. It’s unknown whether the five walk-ons on last year’s roster, including Tucsonans Grant Weitman and Will Menaugh, will return.
