Strong Connection with Coaches key for Booker

Moss Point (MS) High School shooting guard Devin Booker gave fans a blast from the past at the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis last weekend, competing with his former AAU team the Grand Rapids Storm. The temporary switch did nothing to throw his most ardent suitors off the scent, as a contingent of Michigan coaches was at every game. *Video interview and highlights included.**

The recruitment of former Grandville, Michigan resident Devin Booker gets more exciting by the day. With offers now from Florida, Michigan, Missouri, and many others rolling, the five-star shooting guard is proof positive that hard work pays dividends.

“It’s a great feeling,” Booker told GoBlueWolverine. “Any school that offers, any big time college offer is something you dream about, something you work hard for and showing that hard work pays off.”

All of that hard work has only added to Booker’s supreme confidence.  He demands the ball in late game situations, embracing the pressure and giving little thought the possibility of failing.

“Well at the end of the game I just feel like I need the ball in my hands,” said Booker. “If we’re going to lose then I want it to be on me, no one else so I just stepped up big and hit big shots.”

One school hoping Booker can bring that killer mentality to their campus is Michigan. The Wolverines were well represented in Indianapolis with Head Coach John Beilein, as well as assistants Bacari Alexander, lavall jordan and Jeff Meyer at various times (since only three coaches can be on the road at once).  Their presence at his games is now so commonplace that it’s no longer a distraction.

“I used to (get a distracted when they showed up) when I first started,” said Booker. “They were at every game so I used to always look and be like, oh that’s Michigan, I grew up there….’ but now it’s just they’ve been there so much now it’s just an everyday thing.”

“I have a good feel for the staff,” Booker continued. “They’ve been there from the beginning. Bacari has always been there since like seventh or eighth grade so we got to know each other and are more like friends than a coaching staff, coach, player relationship.”

As it turns out, the relationship with the coaching staff at the school eventually picks will a significant role in the decision.

“Any school I pick I have to have a good feel for the staff,” said Booker. “I want to know more about them than just, I’m a basketball player. Off the court, family and just everything.”

On the court, the Wolverines envision multiple roles for the Moss Point high school star, including the possibility of Booker handling the ball more often than expected.

“They said like a Darius Morris type,” said Booker. “On the ball and off the ball. They space it out, set screens for shooters and that’s good for me considering I’m a shooter.”

“That’s something I’ve been working on with my dad being a professional point guard so he’s been teaching me some things to be a point guard,” said Booker.  “Being around him helps me.  Being around him throughout the year, I just moved down to Mississippi with him so we’re both just basketball players.  We love the game and everything we do revolves around the game so just being around it, my IQ gets bigger for the game.”

With the recent commitment of class of 2014 two sport star Drake Harris to the Michigan State Spartans, the newest Spartan and close friend of Booker has been working his buddy over hoping he’ll join him on the court in East Lansing.

“He doesn’t really stress that at all but when we’re hanging out he says when you coming to East Lansing with me?” said Booker. “He cracks jokes sometimes. We always mess around and talk about it, nothing major though.”

“They’re definitely a big factor because it’s the closest school to Grand Rapids, where I’m from it’s like an hour drive,” said Booker of Michigan State. “Whatever school best fits me. I know I’ve said that a lot but that’s the truth.”

“Towards the end of the summer we’ll probably sit down and talk about some of the schools,” said Booker. “Not major but just cut it down a little bit cause right now it’s kind of out of control with all of the schools.”

“I’ll probably be deciding next summer. “I still haven’t cut down, we really haven’t even talked about it that much so it’s something we need to do soon though.”
