Former University of Kentucky basketball player Devin Booker is the subject of a new Nike film chronicling his rise from little-known high school prospect to potential NBA superstar.
Booker, a member of Kentucky’s 38-1 squad of 2014-15, was the No. 13 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns.
The 6-foot-6 shooting guard has quickly become the face of his franchise and one of the league’s most highly touted young players.
The Nike film — “Come out of Nowhere” — includes an appearance by UK coach John Calipari and features Booker’s high school breakout at the Marshall County Hoop Fest.
Never miss a local story.
Entering Wednesday night, Booker was averaging 21.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. As a rookie last season, he averaged 13.8 points and finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year voting.
