Between Kyrie Irving, Dexter Strickland and Derrick Gordon, Kevin Boyle has coached some elite guards in recent years.
Now that he’s moved to Montverde (Fla.) Academy, Boyle has another top one in 2013 point guard Kasey Hill.
“He’s terrific,” Boyle told SNY.tv by phone Friday. “He’s dynamic. He can get to the basket and dunk in traffic on people. I mean, very few guys get to Kyrie’s level, and he’s not, but he’s definitely a Top 10 in the junior class in America and has a chance if he keeps working and gets better to be in the league.”
Boyle said the 6-foot-1, 160-pound Hill was being recruiting hardest by Florida, Florida State, Louisville and Kentucky.
“Everybody’s recruiting him,” Boyle said. “[But] those four in particular.”
