Chris Boucher is one of the most skilled players for his size in recent memory at the JC level. He is a 6’10 four man who can stretch the floor with his ability to shoot the ball from the three-point line and handle the ball on the perimeter. Boucher, a Canadian prospect who played at New Mexico JC last year, had some big performances at the NJCAA D1 National Tournament in Hutchinson, KS.
Boucher averaged 22.5 points and 11.5 rebounds this season while shooting over 50% from the field and nearly 44% from the three-point line.
Boucher is one of the best shot-blockers in the country and averaged 4.7 blocks per game on the year. He is very thin and needs to add size/strength to handle the D1 level, but has a unique skill set to go along with his size and length.
According to Boucher’s JC coach, he is strongly considering TCU and Texas Tech as of now. Those two schools are in the lead for Boucher’s services for the next two years. Rumors have circulated from different sources that Boucher would also visit Oregon and Minnesota, but his JC coach said that no visits are set up as of now. Boucher plans on finishing up his classes over the next few weeks and making a decision during that time frame as well.
There are a handful of other schools in the mix with Boucher, including Minnesota and Oregon, but there are no more visits set up for the time being.
Here is a look at Boucher’s current offer list: Oregon, TCU, West Virginia, Texas Tech, Arizona State, Washington State, Oregon, Baylor, Minnesota, Creighton, Wichita State, Seton Hall, Eastern Michigan, Wagner and Iona.
