Devin Booker has a blog on USATodayhss.com and he recently wrote an entry with some interesting snippets.
“I’m back with my next blog and since the last one I won the Gatorade Player of the Year for Mississippi,” Booker wrote. “I was so honored to win it. It’s the biggest award that I’ve won so far, and it was a really big deal for me. My family had a surprise dinner for me to celebrate winning it. I had no idea about it. My dad just told me that we were going out to eat, then I showed up and my whole family was there. That meant a lot to me!”
He has had some heavy hitters come visiting already and his recruitment should heat up even more in the coming year.
“It was cool because Kentucky is obviously a powerhouse,” Booker wrote. “I love that Coach Calipari pushes his players really hard. That’s what I want in a coach. I’m definitely interested in them. Coach K is supposed to be coming down here Friday for my open gym so I’m looking forward to that. I never get used to stuff like that. I’m really blessed to be in this position.”
Calipari is a master recruiter as he has displayed this year and it would not be surprising to me if Booker plays college basketball in Lexington one day.
