Urban Meyer and his staff have struck gold again. Going back to the same well that brought them versatile stud athlete Parris Campbell, Ohio State's crack team of recruiters have wheeled in another from the alma mater of LeBron James, St. Vincent-St. Mary, this time in the form of 4-star LB Dante Booker.
Booker follows in the footsteps of Cincinnati Moeller ATH Sam Hubbard, who may also wind up at linebacker, and adds to a future group that often looked in 2012 as thought it needed a talent infusion in the worst of ways. The 6-4 210 pound Booker has been thought to been wanting to commit to OSU for some time, but rumor has it his father wanted him to go the prudent route and take the process slow.
The Ohio product OLB chooses the Bucks over the likes of Illinois, Indiana, Louisville, and Maryland and had previously taken an unofficial visit to Notre Dame. Booker, a 4-star in the 247Sports Composite ratings, is graded out as the third best player in the state of Ohio in 2014 (indicative of how huge of a commit this is), the sixth best linebacker in the class, and the 104th best overall player in the class.
