BENTON — Kentucky’s 2014 recruiting class of Devin Booker, Tyler Ulis, Karl Towns and Trey Lyles is rated No. 2 in the rankings by recruiting services, but not by Booker.
“I still think we have the best class. Obviously Duke has a really good class. But I feel like even if we ended right now (with no more signees) we’d be the best class. At the end of the day, we have to show it on the next level. Who knows? We might end up getting some more (players),” Booker said Saturday after scoring 40 points against Ballard in the Marshall County Hoop Fest.
Booker said he has talked to Texas big man Myles Turner about coming to UK and he also let Huntington Prep forward Montaque Gill-Caesar know at the Hoop Fest he would be a welcome addition at Kentucky.”That would be a good pick-up for us. … He’d be good for us, a 3-man who fit in well with us,” Booker said.
