THE LIST: Class of 2014 Rivals150
An active recruiting cycle for high end prospects from the class of 2014 continued on Thursday. This time, it was high end four-star Devin Booker taking the podium.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard at Moss Point (Miss.) High who ranks No. 30 in the class of 2014 was down to Missouri -- where his father Melvin was an All-American -- and Kentucky when he stepped up to announce his decision to play for John Calipari and the Wildcats in front of his high school.
"I would like to announce that I will be playing in college at the University of Kentucky," Booker said in the announcement in front of his classmates.
A big and strong shooter who is a year young for his class -- Booker turned 17 on Wednesday -- the future Wildcat is one of the more skilled two guards in the country. He is comfortable coming off of screens, has mid range game and has learned to use his body to get to the rim and power through defenders.
As he continues to improve his ability to attack off the dribble, Booker projects as a player capable of putting up big numbers on the college level.
Now that Booker is officially onboard, Calipari is putting together yet another strong class in Lexington. Booker joins Tyler Ulis a point guard who checks in at No. 33 nationally and big man Karl Towns who ranks No. 11.
