Little Rock (Ark.) Center four-star small forward Annor Boateng is down to eight schools, he tells On3. Moving forward, the 6-foot-5, 205-pound rising senior will consider Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Indiana, LSU, Missouri, Ohio State, and Virginia Tech.

Boateng has only officially visited one his finalists thus far — Auburn. However, Arkansas and Missouri have each hosted him unofficially.

Along with his final eight schools, he also received offers from Oklahoma State, Memphis, Ole Miss, Stanford, Florida, Houston, and others.

According to the On3 Industry Rankings, Boateng is the No. 25 overall prospect in the 2024 cycle. He’s also the No. 10 small forward prospect and the No. 1 player in the state of Arkansas. The On3 Industry Ranking is a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Boateng talks programs involved

In a previous interview with On3, Annor Boateng discussed several schools involved in his recruitment.

Auburn: “I got to see them in action, which was great. They played against my hometown school, Arkansas. Their whole game routine, the way the coaches interact with the players, is like a family there. I got to talk with some of the players on the side, and they just made it a great experience to be there. They call me regularly and check up on me all the team. Even coach BP (Bruce Pearl) sends me stuff all the time. It’s been great since the visit.”

Missouri: “I like how they conduct themselves; they’re like a family. They make sure their players are respectful on and off the court. Coach (Dennis) Gates and his whole staff are just great people. They’re all very personable, and it’s easy to relate with them. They make you feel welcome.”

Arkansas: “They’re intense there. Coach Muss (Eric Musselman) and the whole staff have NBA experience. Their level of experience shows they can get you to the league if you really want it. That sticks out to me.”

LSU: “I talk with coach Cody Toppert a lot there. He texts me almost every day, and he even sends me film on Fridays. That little thing there shows me that he really is interested in me. You know, not only does he want to recruit me, but he wants to get me better.”

Scouting Report

Annor Boateng has a naturally strong frame with good length and athleticism. He has the upside to be a high-level defender and even shows flashes of that now, with his great effort and ability to move his feet or get into the passing lanes. Boateng shows flashes on offense, being able to create from the wing. His handle is confident in the half-court, and he can get downhill, into the mid-range, or to the rim off the bounce. The jump shot is inconsistent but not broken. He does a lot of things on the court that affects winning at the highest level. – On3’s Jamie Shaw
