The first time I saw Ryan Boatright, he was an 8th grader talking to Tim Floyd about a scholarship offer outside the Galen Center. Boatright accepted Floyd’s offer and committed to USC, the youngest player to ever commit to the Trojans’ basketball team. The Baby Quarterback was a seventh grader so he wins the football competition.
Well, Boatright’s commitment did not survive Floyd’s departure when Kevin O’Neill did not want him. And now Boatright is going to the Final Four as a key player for UConn.
