Booker to Kentucky; Looney to UCLA

Moss Point (MS) shooting guard Devin Booker announced today that he is playing his college basketball at the University of Kentucky.

Booker chose Kentucky over Michigan, Michigan State and Missouri.

Kentucky picks up its third recruit in the class of 2014. Booker joins Rivals five-star center Karl Towns of St. Joseph's (NJ) and point guard Tyler Ulis of Marian Catholic (IL).

The Wildcats could add another piece to the puzzle this evening. Five-star shooting guard James Blackmon is announcing his college decision, and Kentucky is in good position.

Looney to UCLA

Kevon Looney, a sure-fire McDonald's All American ended his recruitment today, as well. In a shocker, Looney chose UCLA over offers from Duke (presumed favorite), Wisconsin, Florida, Michigan State and Tennessee.

Earlier in the day, Looney was caught off guard when he had to postpone his announcement. Two hours later, he caught the recruiting world off guard, as many considered Florida and Duke the favorites.

During a press conference, Looney stood up, put on a UCLA hat, and the crowd roared.

Looney becomes the second commitment for head coach Steve Alford at UCLA. Looney joins Gyorgy Goloman, a 6-9 power forward from Hungary.
