  basketball recruiting to visit Kentucky, possibly for its Midnight (Big Blue) Madness, and said he'd use one of his five officials on Michigan. "Michigan has been on me since eighth grade," Booker said. "They've never missed one of my AAU games." Booker said he'd like to play at a school with an outstanding point guard. Kameron Chatman (6-7,'s No. 30 senior nationally): UConn, Oregon, Arizona and Michigan have offered the Los Angeles Poly star, and he's still open heading into the fall. He plans to trim his list to five in August, and Michigan is very likely to make the cut. Distance won't be a factor, and he plans to decide this fall. "We like Michigan," his father told "I've known Coach [John] Beilein and he's known me since I was playing. Obviously, with the year that they had you've got to pay attention to that. They're trying to lock down some national recruits, and we definitely like Michigan." Vince Edwards (6-6,'s No. 91 senior nationally): The Franklin, Ohio, standout boasts a complete game, but feels like he has a lot to prove after being snubbed for several skills academies (LeBron James, Chris Paul) this summer. Purdue has emerged as the team to beat, with Michigan seemingly focused on other targets. "Louisville has come into the mix some," Edwards said. "They want me to come over there for an unofficial real fast. I'll do that and see what they're talking about. I still have Dayton in the running. That's about it." Edwards said he could decide by the end of summer. "You want it over with, but you don't want to rush it," he said. "You have to make sure you make the right decision." Other 2014 Targets Kevon Looney (6-8,'s No. 8 senior nationally): The Milwaukee Hamilton standout reportedly said Beilein and Michigan State's Tom Izzo were recruiting him hardest, and both schools could be on his list of five when he pares it in July. Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Wisconsin and Stanford are among many others in the mix. He told's Mike Pegram he wasn't sure Michigan would be among the five, but he does like the program and the thought of being the next Glenn Robinson III. "It was effort and patience that allowed five-star Kevon Looney to leave his mark on camp," national recruiting analyst Eric Bossi said from the LeBron James Skills Academy. "Looney didn't get many touches early, but he kept plugging away on the glass, making the most of his chances off the drive and contributed where he could. "He didn't pout, he just played, and eventually that allowed him to show why he's so highly regarded."
