Former Penn State Hoops Commit Carey Booth Transfers To Illinois

Former Penn State men’s basketball commit Carey Booth announced his transfer to Illinois. The former four-star previously committed to Penn State before backing out and following former head coach Micah Shrewsberry to Notre Dame.

Booth is the son of former Penn State legend Calvin Booth, who spent a decade in the NBA and is currently the general manager of the Denver Nuggets.

The 6’10” guard spent one season with the Fighting Irish averaging 6.4 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. He played in 33 games, starting 19 of them as a true freshman, for around 20 minutes a game. Following a disappointing 13-20 season from Notre Dame, Booth entered the portal.

After spending one season in the ACC, Booth will join Brad Underwood’s squad in Champaign, which is losing its best player from the previous season Terrence Shannon Jr. to the draft. Booth brings three years of eligibility to Illinois.
