Kentucky basketball recruit Devin Booker is still on for a Thursday announcement.
His high school coach told the Herald-Leader earlier this month that the 6-foot-5 shooting guard intended to announce his college decision on that date. Booker confirmed that to Scout.com on Tuesday night.
The announcement will be made around 4 p.m. ET at his high school in Mississippi.
Scout.com ranks Booker as the No. 30 overall prospect in the Class of 2014. He is close friends with UK commitment Tyler Ulis and took his official visit to Kentucky at the same time as his fellow Class of 2014 standout.
Booker is also considering Missouri, Michigan and Michigan State. His father was a standout player for Mizzou in the early 1990s. Booker has visited Columbia each of the past two weekends — once for his official visit and once to see his father’s Big Eight championship team honored before an exhibition game.
He has also taken official visits to Michigan and Michigan State. He grew up in Michigan and his mother still lives there.
James Blackmon Jr. — another highly touted shooting guard in the Class of 2014 — will also announce his college decision Thursday. Blackmon is expected to choose either UK, Michigan or Indiana.
