Boozer Twins To Take Official Visit To Florida

Florida will welcome some of the most exciting brothers in basketball to an official visit this fall as Cameron and Cayden Boozer will head to Gainesville, as first reported by 247 Sports’ Jacob Rudner.


Twin brothers Cameron and Cayden Boozer have been huge names on the grassroots basketball circuit ever since they were children, partially due to their name (they’re the sons of former NBA star Carlos Boozer) but more so due to their electrifying talent. At times they were both considered top five players in the class, but they’ve since settled in with Cameron as the #1 player in the class of 2025 with his brother Cayden coming in at #17, also in the class of 2025. 


Both players currently reside in Miami where they play at Columbus High School, so they’ve been able to keep a relatively close eye on the Florida basketball program, with Florida’s coaching staff happy to keep a close eye on the brothers. With the Boozers being in state they have already been on an unofficial visit to Gainesville last November but things are going to another level with this visit being official. They’re set to come on November 4th, the weekend when the football team will play Arkansas. 


Though Cameron and Cayden are twins, their games aren’t particularly similar and in a lot of ways their games compliment each other in a way that would work at the college level–should they choose to attend the same institution as they are rumored to be interested in. Cameron, the slightly more acclaimed player, stands at 6’9” and 215 pounds, already a physical specimen despite being multiple years away from heading to college. He’s a big time shot creator and shot maker, and with that skill set alongside the huge frame you can see why he’ll be in the mix for the top pick in the NBA Draft. Cayden stands at 6’3” and has a much different frame than his brother–though he still has great size and length for his position at point guard. A pure passer and playmaker he loves to get his brother Cameron the ball at the spots on the floor he can be effective and that role should help him translate to the college game rather quickly. More than just a passer Cayden can absolutely get his own points, particularly in transition where he loves to push the pace. 


As their recruitment stands, Duke is considered to be a favorite given that their father was a star there and given that Cameron is the top player in the class–of course the Blue Devils are going to be interested. However, Golden isn’t scared of competing with the traditional powers when it comes to high school recruiting and is pushing hard in pursuit of the Boozers and will hope to get some clarity on where the Gators stand in November.
