Recruiting: 2014 Michigan target Devin Booker scores 49 points in prep game, Duke now reportedly involved
Devin Booker proved exactly why he's become a hot commodity over the past year.
And in doing so, he proved why the Michigan basketball program wants him so bad.
Booker -- a four-star 2014 shooting guard from Moss Point, Miss. -- went for a staggering 49 points during a prep game Friday, leading his team to an 80-65 victory.
“He was really on fire,” Moss Point coach Micoe Cotton told The Sun Herald. “He was shooting in to double teams. He had like 27 at halftime.”
Booker, who originally hails from Grand Rapids, was one of the first 2014 recruits Michigan offered in June -- and he's stayed toward the top of the Wolverines' wish list ever since.
Booker ranks in at No. 24 on Rivals.com's Top 150 for the 2014 class.
The red-hot guard also reportedly has offers from Mississippi, Mississippi State, Missouri, Florida and Arkansas. He also reportedly has interest from Michigan State.
And, following his 49-point game, another suitor appeared -- Duke.
Elsewhere in recruiting, 2013 Michigan signee Derrick Walton went off for 38 points -- 14 in the fourth quarter -- to push his Chandler Park Academy squad past Toledo Rogers on Saturday.
