Bookert taking visits

Devon Bookert's performance in July has put him in the situation to accept a scholarship for 2011 or 2012. Here's the latest on his recruitment.

A big summer on the AAU circuit has allowed 6-foot-2, 165-pound Anchorage (Alaska) West point guard Devon Bookert the opportunity to play college basketball for next season.

Bookert's impressive play for his Branch West AAU squad has led to visits to a number of schools.

"He visited San Diego State and then flew out to Florida State today," said Devon's father, Kevin Bookert. "He'll be back Thursday and do unofficials at Oregon and Oregon State and then he'll officially visit California on Friday. If we can we'll visit USC as well."

The point guard has the option of either joining a school for next season or reclassifying, going to a prep school and committing somewhere for 2012.

"San Diego State, California and Florida State want him for 2011 and the other ones are for 2012," Bookert said.

As of now, Devon is undecided whether he'll be in the 2011 or 2012 class.

"It's gonna be up to Devon; he's the one who has to decide what's the best fit," Kevin Bookert said. "The biggest thing is everything has happened so fast for him so he needs to go and take a snapshot of everything to help him make a decision.

"Hopefully when he feels happy and confident that he can be successful whatever school he chooses, he'll make a decision, but he has the option of waiting until next year as well."
