Found July 21, 2013 on UM Hoops:
WASHINGTON — Devin Booker hasn’t trimmed his list of schools. But he will soon, and Michigan will almost certainly make the cut. The Wolverines’ top priority in the Class of 2014 displayed his full arsenal of skills at the Nike Global Challenge in front of dozens of high-level college coaches, including John Beilein, Tom Izzo, John Calipari, Frank Haith and Roy Williams. A report surfaced Saturday that Booker had cut his list of schools to five, but the 6-foot-4 shooting guard quickly went to Twitter to refute the story. Booker will stick with his plan of trimming his list after the summer evaluation period ends. “It’s about eight or nine,” Booker said. “I haven’t officially cut it down yet or anything. I’m just taking it slow, I’m enjoying it, and maybe after the summer I’ll cut some down officially. “That’s probably when I’ll cut it to seven or five, I’m not sure, and then I’ll just go from there.” It’s a very safe bet the Wolverines will still be in the mix at that point
