Five-star guard Devin Booker sets official visit dates

booked_thumb[1]Five-star guard Devin Booker has set dates for four of his five allotted official visits this fall. Booker tweeted his visit schedule on Sunday evening.

He will take his first official visit to Michigan State on September 6th for the Spartans’ football game against South Florida. He’ll follow that visit with a trip to Kentucky for the Wildcats’ alumni game. Booker had originally planned to visit Kentucky for “Big Blue Madness” on October 18th.

Booker will travel to Ann Arbor on October 5th for Michigan’s football game against Minnesota before traveling to Missouri, where his father was an All-American, on October 19th. Booker has visited Michigan seven times throughout his recruitment but his official visit to Michigan will be his first trip to Ann Arbor with both of his parents.

Booker will also participate in the Under Armour Elite 24 All-Star Game in Brooklyn on August 24th, which will be broadcast live on ESPNU.

A visit date has not been set to Florida, the final school on Booker’s list of five. Booker plans to make a college decision before the early signing period which begins on November 13th, 2013.

    Interesting. That Kentucky alumni game could be pretty influential. I remember reading a few years back about UNC recruits coming for their alumni game and being awed by that. Granted, Kentucky doesn’t have a Michael Jordan. But still… The MSU football game won’t do much to move the meter. Definitely think UK is the biggest competitor.

      I don’t think Sparty has to move the meter. I think they are already ahead of us.

        no almost every expert has us as the favorites… I’m pretty sure if he goes somewhere else its UK

        According to who?!

          According to me and my gut.

          I think he’ll go with whichever school can offer the path of least resistance to a starting job. That will probably be Sparty.

      I’m sure Michigan tried to get him in for the Notre Dame game. Is the fact that he chose MSU vs. South Florida over that any indicator?

    Dylan, if you cared to, I’d bet a lot of us would be interested in a little tea-leaf reading report with some hints about where things are going and how things are going with M recruiting in aggregate. Should we have hoped that some darned body would have opted for the team by now? Thanks.

    He’s not going to UofM folks! He is going to play with Tyler Ulis, which leaves UK and MSU. Check out the Twitter conversation they had TODAY! They are joking around about basketball practice and putting moves on each other. Last I checked, UofM has no chance with Ulis.

      To clarify, they are friends and have been talking about playing together for some time now. This wasn’t just an off the cuff comment.
