Big Summer Ahead for Boudreaux

With the Summer Evaluation Period coming up soon, coaches will be heading out to evaluate players for their upcoming classes. Class of 2015 PF Evan Boudreaux hopes to add more options for his upcoming decision.

Evan Boudreaux, Lake Forest (IL) High School recently completed his first AAU tournament of the season, and despite already having two offers, hopes that more schools will take notice.

The 6-foot 7, 210 pound power forward collected early offers from Boston College and Northwestern last year and is currently receiving interest from Butler, DePaul, Michigan, Stanford, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Iowa, Virginia, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Creighton, and Harvard.

While there are a lot of schools interested, his early offers continue to stand out.

"Northwestern and Boston College stick out to me, because they offered so early," Boudreaux told InsideTheDawgPound. "They offered so early last summer and spring. That kind of leap of faith meant something to me for sure."

Teaming up with 6-foot 9, Yale commit Sam Downey, the Lake Forest Scouts finished with a record of 20-9 and a trip to the regional championship.

Boudreaux is a versatile forward that can score on the block and rebound, but also stretch a defense to the perimeter. He averaged 16.5 points and 10.1 rebounds per game last season.

With a busy summer of AAU basketball ahead, Boudreaux plans on taking a few visits to help gather more information.

"I am visiting DePaul tomorrow (Wednesday 4/10)," Boudreaux said. "A lot of schools want me to get up this spring, like Virginia and Wake Forest."

One school that Boudreaux has already visited multiple times is Butler.

"I have been calling Coach (Michael) Lewis. Coach Lewis came up to see me once, and I also visited Butler to see the campus, kind of look around, and meet the coaches. I just went up in January for the Gonzaga game. That was fun. I got to meet Coach Stevens on the visit, and went in the locker room for pre- and post-game speeches. That was a lot of fun."

Boudreaux wants to make a decision before his senior season begins and most likely will take his official visits to help gather the information he needs to find his perfect fit.

"I want to go to a school where I can really trust the coaches and I like my teammates. Where the team is on an upward trend. I'm looking for a great combination of athletics and academics."
