According to Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports, 6'2" combo guard Devon Bookert has committed to the Noles. He was the player of the year in Alaska, and recently re-classed from 2011 to 2012 rather than committing to Cal where he could have played immediately. In the interim he will be spending a season at the Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas.
Bookert was a late bloomer, not garnering D1 interest until his senior season. This is a savvy move by Leonard Hamilton, as Bookert is still learning the PG position and could not have contributed right away. His high school coach - who also coached Duke's Trajan Langdon - says the two players are similar. "He loves the game," he said. " He refuses to get outworked and is very competitive. He's just a good all-around, well-rounded player. He's a lot like Trajan -- he handles the ball better while Trajan was a better shooter."
