Throughout the July live evaluation period for NCAA Basketball prospects, one of the biggest breakout stars was TJ Power, who hails from Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, and has gone from being a solid Northeast recruit to now being nationally targeted.

Power is a 6’8 true power forward, whose ability to stretch the floor and make three-pointers consistently. It’s a big part of today’s game and he’s one of the best in the 2023 class. He’s also a good athlete and can handle the ball as well to playmake whenever he has the ball.

After a couple of recent high-profile visits, the four-star recruit has updated his process, with now five teams in the running.

There’s an 80% chance that Power will ultimately end up in the ACC but don’t overlook Iowa, who has become an offensive haven for forwards. Where will he ultimately end up? Here’s a closer look at how Power would fit with each potential option.

Boston College Eagles

As the “local” option in the group, Boston College has been in the mix since the beginning and hopes that can pay off against the bigger programs. What else they have to offer is not only the ability to get plenty of playing time early on but also a featured offensive role. This is a team that doesn’t have a star scorer or go-to player and Power could change that.

On the other hand, the Eagles are a long ways to go before getting back to the NCAA Tournament. They’ll need more than just Power to move up the ACC ladder, whereas the other four options in the running all have a recent history of postseason success.
