Booker announcing Thursday

Thursday could be shaping up to be a huge day for Kentucky's recruiting efforts in the 2014 class.

Booker will announce his college decision at 4 p.m. EST Thursday afternoon.

One of the top shooters in the country, Moss Point (Miss.) 4-star shooting guard Devin Booker, will announce his college decision Thursday afternoon, according to his Twitter:

@DevinBook I will be announcing my college decision on Thursday, October 31st at 3pm in Moss Point High gymnasium.

Booker's announcement will come just hours prior to the decision of James Blackmon Jr., who is also rumored to be heavily favoring Kentucky.

Ranked as the No. 26 overall prospect by the 247Composite, which takes into account rankings across multiple major outlets, Booker will choose between Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State and Missouri.

Booker was in attendance for Kentucky's Alumni Charity Game on an official visit alongside close friend and UK commit Tyler Ulis.

The son of former Missouri standout, Melvin Booker, Booker's announcement comes on the heels of back-to-back visits to Columbia, where his father was honored last weekend.

Booker's Crystal Ball is currently projecting Kentucky at 84 percent.
