Cayden Boozer says Miami is recruiting the twins hardest
By MATT WHITFIELDCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — There is and will be a ton of recruiting stories and chatter on where twins Cameron and Cayden Boozer will attend college in 2025.
Will the brothers be a package deal? Are they going to follow in their dads’ footsteps and go to Duke?
One thing that is for certain, though, is the hometown team is working hard to get Cayden and Cameron Boozer.
“I’d say the school recruiting me the hardest is Miami. We’re a hometown team and they’ve known us since we were babies basically, so I feel like they’ve been recruiting us the hardest for sure,” Cayden Boozer, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Miami (FL) Columbus High School, said at USA Basketball U16 Mini-Camp.
A 6-9 power forward ranked the No. 1 player in his class, Cameron listed seven schools he’s hearing from the most with the Hurricanes being on the list of course as well.
“Miami, Duke, Kentucky, UNC, Michigan, Arkansas, and Memphis,” said Cameron Boozer on schools he keeps in touch with the most.
Duke, Kentucky, and North Carolina all offered within the last month.
“They’re all great schools, top teams in the country. [And] schools to look at and exciting offers,” said Cameron on those three schools.
Playing together at the next level cannot be ruled out either.
“A package deal [with my brother and me] would be great but obviously it has to be a fit for both of us. And if not a fit for both of us, that’s ok. We’ll go our separate ways. If we can play together in college we definitely will,” said Cayden Boozer.
Cayden mentioned the Hurricanes as a school he’d take an official visit too and added he’d know more on June 15th regarding colleges when schools can begin to call.
“I’ll definitely take an official to Miami. I love their program and I love Coach L. He’s a great coach,” said Cayden.
“The coaches I’m hearing from the most are Miami, Michigan, Florida, Arkansas, Missouri, FSU,” Cayden Boozer added.
For now, though, both Boozers are just trying to be among the final 12 players on the Team USA Junior National team.
