Spencer Boehm is a high academic 2019 post from New Trier that stands at 6’8”. He is a low post presence with his ability to finish with sound footwork, a soft touch, and crafty moves on the block. Can use a little power every now and then as well to finish through his man. Boehm can finish with both hands around the rim. Runs the floor well. Capable offensive rebounder. Projects as a great Ivy League prospect.
Boehm discussed his junior campaign at New Trier.
“I thought it was a great year. A lot of people didn’t think we would make it as far as we did as we made it to the sectional and lost to Evanston in a close game. Overall I thought it was a good year playing with Ciaran (Brayboy) and some other good players. Looking forward to this AAU season and season coming up.”
How was the season for him from a developmental standpoint?
“I thought individually I did well. My leadership with the team was good being one of the team captains this year. Passing especially. I know I am about 6’8” so I need to be able to show I can play some of the three position so I have worked on my passing and ball handling. I am now starting to consistently hit my jump shot.”
He is running with a new travel team this spring Fundamental U.
“It is going great. I am looking forward to playing with Alex Timmerman and JR Cison. A couple kids from Indiana and some New Trier kids. A lot of good guys from the suburban area and the main thing is we just play good basketball. A lot of simple things like passing the ball to open man.”
Where do things stand with recruiting?
“Currently I hold offers from Dartmouth and Columbia. Also looking at Yale and Brown a lot as well as Bucknell. Definitely looking to go Ivy League or high academic.”
Boehm broke down the two schools that have offered him to this point.
“I like Columbia a lot because they like my toughness and competitiveness and the way I play. I know the coaching staff well.”
“They like my motor and my intensity within the game.”
What is next?
“Next step is to play well in the live periods to solidify things and then decide between those schools.”
