Four-Star Forward Carey Booth Commits To Penn State Hoops

Penn State men’s basketball has added another recruit to its 2023 class.

Four-star forward Carey Booth announced his verbal commitment to play for head coach Micah Shrewsberry and the Nittany Lions on a 247Sports livestream Wednesday night.

Booth is the second-highest-rated recruit in Penn State’s history, according to 247Sports. The Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, native joins guards Braeden Shrewsberry and Logan Imes in what is shaping up to be another strong class for the Nittany Lions.

Booth held offers from Ohio State, Texas, Vanderbilt, and Stanford, among others, before deciding to join Penn State. He currently plays his high school ball at Brewster Academy.

Size has been an issue for Penn State as of late. But, the 6’9″ Booth will help fill an immediate hole with the likes of current freshmen Kebba Njie (6’8″) and Demetrius Lilley (6’10”).

If you are wondering why the name Booth sounds familiar, you may remember his father, Calvin Booth. He played for the Nittany Lions from 1995-1999 before playing 11 seasons in the NBA. He is also the head of basketball operations for the Denver Nuggets.
