Always down to provide a scouting report.  First, here is the clip I was referring to with AAU highlights from the spring.

Boykins is definitely a wing, and by no means a point guard if that is what you meant.  He does seem to have the size to defend the 3 as well as the 2, especially in the PL.  He seems like a very smooth athlete with excellent body control, even if he isn’t the most explosive guy (still has bunches of dunks in his highlight reel).  Nice smooth repeatable stroke with good balance and a picture perfect follow through.  Good handle with a little bit of shake and a nice crossover that allows him to get by people.  Excellent body control to pull up quickly or adjust his shot and finish at the rim (with either hand).  Good awareness of the defense and he does the little things like switch hands once his man is beaten so his defender can’t back tap him.  There are not a lot of clips of him rebounding or passing so those may be areas of improvement, and like many young players he could stand to add some strength. 

Obviously this is a highlight tape so it needs to be taken with a grain of salt but I think Monty would be a phenomonal get for Lehigh.  Really big time.
