NBA projection:
Bost has been projected as a second-round pick or undrafted. He has some skills an NBA team might be able to put to good use—notably his skill as a setup man and his competitive nature. In order to stay in the league, he’s going to have to become less turnover prone and gain some consistency with his jump shot.

Bost struggled with his shot from time to time, but he wound up having his best season statistically. Bost led the Southeastern Conference in assists, was second in steals, fifth in scoring, fifth in 3-point percentage, third in 3-pointers per game (2.3), fourth in assist-to-turnover ratio and first in minutes played. He earned first-team All-SEC honors.

Cool statistic:
Bost finished his career with 633 assists, tops in Mississippi State history and eighth all-time in the SEC.

Reminds me of:
Rajon Rondo

Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy
“I’ve always said I believe he’s the best point guard in this league.”
