Devin Booker on potentially playing with Tyler Ulis in college

Devin Booker is a basketball player at Moss Point.

2014 shooting guard Devin Booker has his own blog over at USA Today, where it seems like every high school basketball player has a blog, and he wrote about potentially playing with Tyler Ulis at the next level in his latest entry. Booker, ranked 30th in the new Rivals150, and Ulis have had the conversation around 10 times, he says, but they’re not a package deal.

I’ve definitely been having some conversations with my boy Tyler Ulis about maybe playing together in college. We’ve known each other for a long time and we both would love to team-up in college.

He’s the kind of point guard that you definitely want to play with because he just finds you in the perfect situations and in the perfect way. It’s not a definite package deal, but we’ve probably talked about playing together around 10 times I’d say. We text back and forth a lot.

We’ll see how that goes.

Booker and Ulis will both be in Lexington for the alumni game Monday night, so an 11th conversation is likely to take place while they’re in town.

    We get Karl Towns, Stanley Johnson, Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis, and James Blackmon Jr. Marcus Lee stays, Dakari Johnson surprises people and stays, Trey Lyles may pick UK, but will not start over any of the three previously mentioned bigs. Lyles may pick Louisville. But Derek Willis and EJ Floreal will also return, and both will be much better. EJ is a great defender and very athletic already, and Derek can shoot well, post up, and catch plenty of lobs. The 14-15 class and team will be fine, even if we don’t land Lyles, Alexander, Jones, Turner, or Okafor.

    not to say it wouldnt work but that would be an incredibly soft and small backcourt

    If we get this kid and we dont get Lyles we will not get Blackmon. I think Stanley Johnson needs to be our biggest priority right now. After Johnson it need to be Blackmon and Lyles because i would rather have Blackmon or D.Hawkins run the point than Ulis.

    Idk 5 and 6, I think “incredibly soft” is something we won’t be able to call Ulis and Hawkins. Sure, Ulis is small, and Hawkins isn’t a super-talent; However, Ulis IS very tough, fast, skilled, and physical, and Hawkins is very tough and physical, and will be an incredibly hard worker and improve.

    Booker is 6’5 or 6’6, so I don’t see why there’s any worry about his size. Blackmon Jr. is 6’2″, same as Hawkins. Also, don’t forget EJ Floreal, who is 6’4″, who will also be improved for the 14-15 season (he is very athletic, very quick, strong, physical, tough, and has hops; he is at least a great defender already). Our backcourt will be perfectly fine.
