Fast-forward to the 2014 class and Mount St. Josesph wing prospect Phil Booth is starting to pick up some serious buzz in Charm City.
"Phil has had a real good year," Mount St. Joseph coach Pat Clatchey told Scout.com. "I think Phil's game is one of balance and versatility. He has to do a lot for us."
Clatchey described Booth, a 6-foot-4 wing, as someone that shoots the ball well, but also pays close attention to his assignment on the defensive end.
"He's somebody that can shoot with range," he said. [He's] somebody that can get to the cup and somebody that can defend at the high level."
Booth echoed Clatchey's description.
"I shoot the ball well," the 2014 prospect told Scout.com. "I'm good at passing, rebounding and I'm a solid defender."
To date, Rutgers and Maryland are the only schools to offer him a scholarship.
"I'm really doing pretty good with it," he said of his recruitment. "I'm really open. I haven't really decided which school I like the most. I haven't gotten that far. I'm just really open."
Although not worried with his recruitment at this time, Booth has taken a pair of unofficial visits.
"I went up to midnight madness at Rutgers and Villanova," he said. "I went to their midnight madness. They were very good."
Booth will run with Keith Stevens' Team Takeover squad on the spring and summer circuit.
