Kentucky Basketball Recruiting Target Devin Booker Set to Announce Decision on October 31

USA TODAY Sports

The shooting guard from Moss Point (MS) is currently considered a Kentucky lean.

2014 shooting guard Devin Booker from Moss Point (MS) will announce his collegiate decision on October 31. The news was broken by Ben Roberts of the Herald-Leader. Roberts talked to Booker's high school coach, Micoe Cotton. According to Cotton, Booker will have a commitment ceremony at his school.

Booker will pick from four schools: Kentucky, the Michigan St. Spartans, the Michigan Wolverines, and the Missouri Tigers. Per Cotton, Booker's fifth finalist, the Florida Gators, are no longer involved in Booker's recruitment.

If you're looking for some explanation about Booker's finalists, here goes. Booker grew up in Michigan, but recently moved with his family to Mississippi. Further, his father, Melvin Booker, played college ball at Missouri.

The younger Booker took an official visit Michigan St. on September 6, followed by an official to Lexington on September 9. He plans to officially visit both Michigan and Missouri later this month prior to making his final decision.

Booker's hometown Wolverines were perceived as his leaders for most of the summer. However, following Booker's official visit to Kentucky, many recruitniks now believe the Wildcats are in the driver's seat. It didn't hurt that Kentucky recently received a commitment from Booker's close friend, Tyler Ulis. That said, Michigan still has a big chance to sway Booker when he takes his official visit.

The lanky shooting guard, ranked 26th in his class according to the 247 Composite Rankings, would be a great addition to Kentucky's 2014-15 backcourt. Booker is considered one of the best shooters in his class, and would provide size and scoring ability next to the smaller Ulis. The Wildcats have one additional offer out a shooting guard, James Blackmon, but could conceivably take both players.
