Per John McCallister, Booker is a very good athlete who runs
well. He is explosive and can get from sideline to sideline. He thinks
he could eventually grow into a defensive end and really blossom. He
bounced back as a senior after having a bit of a dip as a junior.
Projected as a strongside linebacker initially, he could be in
the two-deep pretty quickly. However, projections will likely change
once everybody gets to campus. The Buckeyes don't normally play more
than three or four linebackers in any given game, and they'll have at
least that many ahead of Booker. He may make it into the two-deep, but
playing time will be another issue.
