Devin Booker Commits to the Kentucky Wildcats over the Michigan Wolverines and Missouri Tigers

USA TODAY Sports

Welcome aboard!

2014 shooting guard Devin Booker from Moss Point (MS) chose the Kentucky Wildcats over the Michigan Wolverines and Missouri Tigers today. He had taken official visits to all three schools, in addition to an official to the Michigan St. Spartans. Booker announced his decision via a presser from his high school.

Booker received a Kentucky offer last spring, following his transfer to Moss Point. Prior to moving to Mississippi, Booker had lived in Michigan--hence his interest in the Wolverines. His father, a former college basketball star, played at Missouri.

Booker had kept things coy in recent weeks. Despite most analysts leaning towards Kentucky, that feeling never felt certain until Booker publicly opted for Kentucky. He had most recently taken a couple of recruiting trips to Missouri, and there was some sense that the Tigers had pulled into the pole position.

But Kentucky head coach John Calipari utilized his recruiting wizardry once again, and Booker will be a 'Cat, not a Tiger. Ranked as the 26th overall prospect in the 247 Composite rankings, Booker brings size and a shooting touch to Kentucky's backcourt. He will be a sizable addition next to his close friend and Kentucky commit, point guard Tyler Ulis. Big man Karl Towns was the first commitment in the 2014 class.

Later tonight, fellow shooting guard James Blackmon will publicly declare his commitment. Blackmon had been considered a Kentucky lean, but the latest rumblings have him choosing Indiana. Stay tuned!
