VIDEO: R.J. Barrett showcases potential in return to Hoophall Classic
Montverde head coach Kevin Boyle has seen it all when it comes working with top-tier prospects.
While players such as D’Angelo Russell, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are establishing themselves as the next wave of NBA talent, the trio all got their start under the tutelage of Boyle and the Eagles.
Don’t look for that NBA pipeline to slow down anytime soon, however, as Boyle is currently grooming another potential superstar at Montverde in sophomore R.J. Barrett.
“R.J. is going to be a high pick,” Boyle said. “I think R.J. can very well be a guy that can be a top-three pick in the draft coming out after a year of college.”
