Booker to Kentucky; Looney to UCLA
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.
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.
