Scouting Report
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.

Immediate Projection
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.
