Tennessee basketball announced the signing of four-star guard Bishop Boswell on Wednesday afternoon. Boswell is the lone commit in the Vols’ 2024 recruiting class and is the only player Tennessee expects to sign during the early signing period.
Boswell ranks as a four-star recruit and the No. 69 player and No. 10 combo guard in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The Charlotte, North Carolina native committed in late September over a top group which includes Georgia, Missouri and Wake Forest.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bishop Boswell and his mother, Brittany Boswell, to the Tennessee Basketball family. Bishop is a great young man who exhibits superb leadership qualities,” Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said in a statement. “He is a big, versatile guard who is comfortable both scoring and facilitating. We are also excited about his ability to defend multiple positions on the other end of the court. A former football player, Bishop will also bring a high level of toughness that meshes well with our program.”
Boswell is a pass first guard who can play on-and-off the ball and is a strong on-ball defender. The 6-foot-4 guard has a well rounded offensive game and can score in multiple ways. On the AAU circuit, Boswell plays for Team CP3 and averaged 12.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game during the NIKE EYBL circuit last summer.
“The fact that I can do multiple things on the court. I’m not just a scorer. Not just a shooter,” Boswell told RTI after his commitment. “I’m a really good passer. I’m a really good defender. I do what the team needs to win. I can handle the ball. Guard 94-feet. Just a variety of things.”
Tennessee was late to the party recruiting Boswell but after officially visiting earlier this fall, the four-star guard felt like Knoxville was the right spot for him.
“I think it was just right fit for me,” Boswell said. “It had that feeling. It just felt like the right fit for me and how I am as a person and a player. I think that is just kind of what pushed it over the edge.”
The Vols’ one commit recruiting class currently ranks 66th nationally according to the 247sports team rankings.
