Devin Booker will wear No. 1 at UK

booker1

After wearing the No. 2 at Moss Point High School and for the Alabama Challenge in AAU, Devin Booker will switch to the No. 1 jersey at UK. Booker tweeted his new number Thursday afternoon.

Sophomore Aaron Harrison — that sounds so good, doesn’t it? — already has dibs on the No. 2 jersey at Kentucky.

Booker will be the fifth player at UK to wear numero uno, following James Young, Darius Miller, Alex Legion and Cliff Hawkins.

    I am pretty sure Michael Porter wore #1 one season.

    I thought for sure that # would be saved for Charles Matthews. 1 Could probably still go to Matthews, since Booker technically could get #2 after this coming season

    Its crazy to think that only 5 players have worn #1 in well over 100 years, considering that you can only have numbers 0-5 on your jersey.

      Even more crazy to think that all 5 have been in the last 15 years.

    I didn’t realize Cliff Hawkins was the first player to wear number 1 in UK’s history.

    I believe Brandon Stockton also wore number 1 for one season.

      Hope he sticks with 41. I was a big Glen Rice fan for some reason and always liked that #

    Darius Miller !! Hello. Remember that Kentucky kid that could light it up, was a factor and senior on the most recent UK championship, and now in the NBA! Props to all the other #1’s as well. Can’t wait to see him play. I feel sorry for teams that play the Cats next year!!
