5-star Arizona commit Kylan Boswell reclassifies to 2022 class
Tommy Lloyd and the Arizona Wildcats got great news on Wednesday.
Kylan Boswell, a 5-star guard and Arizona commit, announced he has decided to reclassify from the 2023 class and join Lloyd’s program for this upcoming fall. Boswell was one of the top-ranked recruits in the 2023 class and should give Arizona another talented option in the backcourt right away.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound point guard out of Chandler (Ariz.) Compass Prep committed to the Wildcats back in February over interest from UNLV, Arizona State, Illinois, and Auburn, among others. He ranked as the No. 4 point guard prospect in the 2023 class and the No. 21 player overall, according to the 247 Composite.
“We want him to get a chance to go in and get acclimated early,” Boswell’s father, Brandon, told 247Sports. “We think that for his development we want to get him into that environment now and do what he needs to do to be able to help there and get ready for what is potentially a professional career.”
His arrival will give Lloyd yet another ball-handler as he looks to reconstruct the rotation. Arizona is also adding 2022 signees Dylan Anderson, Filip Borovicanin, and Henri Veesaar as well as transfers in former Campbell wing Cedric Henderson Jr. and former Texas guard Courtney Ramey.
With Boswell, Ramey, and the return of Kerr Kriisa, Arizona has quite the collection of talent at the point. Despite being a year young for a freshman, Boswell could see the floor right away given his two-way ability. He’s a sturdy, hard-nosed guard who plays hard on the defensive end of the floor.
Here’s what 247Sports’ Brandon Jenkins wrote of his offensive game:
“Timely” is the best word to describe his offensive game. Boswell plays with pace and is fundamentally sound off the bounce. He has the vision to make the right pass and can be dependable shooting the ball from deep when in rhythm although his shot could use more consistency. However, he always can be counted upon to make the big play at the right time—whether it be a timely bucket, pass, or forced turnover. He is all about winning and is one of those players who is proven in uplifting a team with great talent around him.
