Booker will visit North Carolina when the Tar Heels take on North Carolina State on Saturday, Duke on Sunday for their matchup against Boston College, Florida the following weekend (v Alabama), Michigan State on March 7 (v Wisconsin) and Michigan on the 10th (v Indiana).
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard has seen his stocks rise considerably in the past few months and is now ESPN’s No.19 ranked prospect from the class of 2014 and is Rivals.com’s No.24.
In front of high-major college coaches in late January, Booker produced a 34-point game against Greenville-Weston High in a 63-60 Moss Point win.
Booker has spent 2013 attempting to transition to the point guard position and while he initially experienced some difficulties there, he is now looking far more comfortable and has maintained a season average of slightly under 30 points per game.
Michigan, one of the colleges in the building during Booker’s big night, is a college that has been keeping an eye on the five-star recruit for quite some time. Missouri has also been linked to Booker as a possible college destination (his father, Missouri legend Melvin Booker, starred at the college during his playing days) as has Georgetown and Alabama.
Booker has played some point guard this season and after a rough start has performed very well at the position, maintaining a season average over just under 30 points per outing.
