Kentucky commit, 5-star Boogie Fland, has asked to be released from his NLI

Boogie Fland is no longer committed to Kentucky, part of the fall-out from John Calipari leaving the Wildcats last week. One of the top recruits in the nation, Fland is the latest Kentucky recruit to re-open his commitment the past week.

A class of 2024 recruit, Fland is a five-star in the 247Sports Composite where he is the No. 18 player in the nation. A McDonald’s All-American, Fland is coming off a strong season for Archbishop Stepinac (White Plains, New York).

On Monday morning, Joe Tipton of On3 is reporting that Fland wants out of his NLI (National Letter of Intent).

Last week Jayden Quaintance asked out of his commitment from Kentucky. A five-star forward, Quaintance is the No. 14 player in the nation in the ESPN 300.

As for Fland, he has not confirmed the reports of his request on social media. But with Calipari’s departure last week to Arkansas, it is certainly understandable why Fland along with the likes of Quaintance are re-opening their college commitment.


Whoever lands Fland is going to get an impact player who is dynamic offensively.

At the McDonald’s All-American Game a week ago, Fland scored 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting. He was one of the most impressive players at the event.

Fland is a versatile scorer, with a strong outside game but the handle to drive and get to the rim.
