Kentucky Wildcats Basketball Recruiting: Update on Devin Booker and Myles Turner


 

Devin Booker has now completed all of his planned official college visits.  Yet, Booker said he is not any closer to announcing where he will play next year.  Booker is a 6’5″ shooting guard and is a five-star recruit, ranked as the 3rd best player at his position for the Class of 2014, and is ranked as the 18th best player overall for the Class of 2014 according to ESPN.  He took his final planned visit this past weekend to Missouri, and he has Kentucky, Michigan, and Michigan State remaining on his list of college options as well.  Booker has personal ties to three of his remaining schools.  His father played at Missouri, he lived with his mother in Michigan through the ninth grade, and is close friends with Kentucky commit Tyler Ulis.  Booker has a very tough decision to make, and hopes to make his decision prior to the beginning of the NCAA’s early signing period on November 13.

Another highly touted prospect from the Class of 2014 that Kentucky has been chasing after is Myles Turner.  Turner is a 6’11″ center and is a five-star recruit, ranked as the 2nd best player at his position for the Class of 2014, and is ranked as the 2nd best player overall for the Class of 2014 according to ESPN.  Turner took his first official college visit this past weekend, which was to Ohio State.  David Turner, Myles Turner’s father, has said that the visit went well and that Myles enjoyed it.  Myles Turner’s list of schools now includes Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, and Texas.  Turner cut Louisville from his list since they stopped recruiting him, which is most likely due to the fact that Louisville already has commitments from  center Chinanu Onuaku and power forward Jaylen Johnson.  Turner and his family plan to sit down this week and decide which visit comes next.  Turner has said that he plans to sign late.
