    Class of 2024 four-star combo guard Bishop Boswell will make his college decision on Thursday, Sept. 28, per Travis Branham of 247Sports.

    Boswell will make his announcement live on the 247Sports YouTube page at 5 p.m. ET.

    Boswell — the 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard from Myers Park (NC) and the Team CP3 AAU program — will decide between a top five schools of Georgia, Missouri, Tennessee, Wake Forest and Xavier. He visited Georgia last weekend with four-star small forward Khani Rooths.

    “Bishop is one of the best two-way guards in the country,” his coach Nick Jones told ZAGSBLOG. “He’s a high level rebounder and defender. He plays downhill and sets the pace with his athleticism and physicality. His best basketball is ahead of him and will be a tremendous college lead guard.”

    Here is what Boswell said of each of his final schools via 247Sports:

    Georgia: “It’s closer to home and they have been recruiting me a long time so I have a great relationship with the coaching staff. Just the speed they play with and the success coach [Mike] White has had with coaches and running ball-screens is promising.”

    Missouri: “Coach [Dennis] Gates offered me late. He saw me in not even my greatest game but the biggest thing that stands out to me about him is his belief in me and how he thought what I could do in the way they play and how they use their guards. That’s the biggest thing that stood out.”

    Tennessee: “I think what stood out to me on campus was how much the fans cared – not just about football, obviously. SEC football is really popular but basketball is as well. Being at the football game and walking around with Grant Williams just everyone wanted a picture and wanted to talk to him and the basketball team. Just like being around the team, people wanted pictures and stuff so just the culture and the fans there are different. People love it.”

    Wake Forest: “I have known them for a long time. I have a great relationship with the coaches because they were one of the earliest schools to recruit me and it’s close to home. I just have a really good relationship with the coaches and the guys on the team. The offense they run, I can see myself producing in it.”

    Xavier: “It’s a little different than most schools with them not having a football team. All of the resources and the fan love goes to basketball and that’s what makes it kind of special. Everyone is focused on basketball and wants Xavier to have a winning program and they have. I think that I was looking for that family atmosphere. Somewhere that even if I wasn’t going to go play basketball there that I would still enjoy going to school there and then just honestly like the coaching staff and their belief in me. How they see me fitting in with the team, the guys and the style at the school.”

    Boswell is ranked the No. 65 player in the nation per 247Sports and the No. 7 overall prospect in the state of North Carolina. Boswell helped lead Myers Park to a state championship in 2023.
