Devin Booker has chosen to wear No. 1 for Kentucky next season, he announced Thursday on Twitter.

Booker wore No. 2 for his high school and AAU teams, but that number will be taken by returning shooting guard Aaron Harrison.

James Young and Darius Miller are the two most recent players to wear No. 1 at Kentucky, and Booker mentioned both of them in his tweets Thursday.

Fellow freshmen Tyler Ulis (No. 3) and Trey Lyles (No. 41) will be free to wear their high school numbers, but Karl-Anthony Towns will have to find a new one. Towns was No. 44 in high school — the number worn by Dakari Johnson last season. Towns was No. 12 — which is available — for the Dominican national team.

  1. Welcome to Kentucky Devin! The big blue nation is excited to have you here. You are going to love playing in Rupp and under the guidance of John Calipari. He takes care of his players on and off the court. I don’t know where you could find as good a class of team mates either. This guys are a solid group of players and fine individuals as well. Having a shooter of your quality will make Kentucky a much better team. Welcome aboard!
