I would like to thank God first for allowing me to have such an opportunity. I want to thank both my parents for setting a foundation for me to strive, want to thank my older brother for having my back and supporting me. I would like to give a shoutout to all my Teachers at SJA, Mr. Sawatzke, Ms. Chin, and especially Ms. Chang. Thank you George Harris prep Coaches, G-elite Coaches, Canada Elite Coaches, Team Canada Coaches and all my teammates up till this day to getting me to this point. And a special thank you to My number 1 guy, my Coach, my mentor, my friend, Coach George. He had believed in me before I believed in my self. Words can’t describe how much this man has done for me. I really don’t know where I would be if he didn’t show interest in me at such a young age. He sacrificed so much for me. Over the last 2 years we flew all over America to every camp to prove that I belong. And I would like to tell the world this is not just my moment this is our moment. God bless him and his entire family. I would like to thank all the College Coaches that Took their time to recruit me, it was a special journey for me. Growing up in a small Suburb outside for Toronto I would have never thought I would have gained so much attention this quickly but I can only choose one school. And Now I am finally proud to announce that I am Committing to...... Michigan State University. #enochboakye #committed #msubasketball ‼️‼️

Listed at 6-foot-10 and 240 pounds, Boakye is ranked No. 18 overall among the 2022 cohort on 247 Sports' recruit board. He is currently playing at George Harris Prep in Mississauga, Ontario.

"Michigan State has done a lot in recruiting me; they've put a lot of time into recruiting me," Boakye told 247 Sports' Travis Branham. "Coach (Tom) Izzo came down to Canada a few times to watch me even in a practice setting. I heard that the first time he came down to see me was the first time he has been down to Canada for the past 20 years."

The highly regarded Canadian follows in the footsteps of small forward Emoni Bates, the 2022 class' top overall recruit. Bates committed to Izzo's program in late June.
