This past weekend, one of Michigan‘s biggest 2014 recruiting targets graced Ann Arbor with his presence. Devin Booker lit up the Michigan Basketball Camp, which was full of top level high school players, many of whom have interest in Michigan and or vice versa.
Booker is a four star shooting guard who is currently ranked no. 23 in the 2014 class by Rivals. Booker, while also closing in on that fifth star, has been garnering huge interest from many big time programs recently. The Mississippi native already has offers from Duke, Florida, Kentucky and North Carolina, along with one from John Beilein and the Wolverines.
The 6’ 4” shooting guard is just that, a great shooter. Booker’s ability to knock down three pointers is a huge part of what has enamored Beilein and other big programs so much. He made over 38% of his three pointers on his way to averaging over 16 points a game at the Nike Elite circuit in April, showcasing his scoring ability against other top recruits.
But it is Booker’s tremendous performance at Michigan’s camp that should have Michigan fans excited. He reportedly went all out, never losing in five on five games and thoroughly dominating the competition. According to UMHoops, Booker went up against the much larger Noah Dickerson, a 2015 prospect who is 6’8”, 245 lbs and drawing national attention as well. His attempt to impress Wolverines coaches was successful, as Booker was named the MVP of the camp.
Booker is arguably Michigan’s biggest 2014 target as Beilein looks to add him to their two current commitments, Ricky Doyle and Austin Hatch. Booker definitely has impressed Michigan, and now they are hoping to impress him.
