Dante Booker


6-foot-3, 210 lbs.

Akron (Ohio)

St. Vincent-St. Mary HS

Status: Unsigned


From late March to late June (2013) the Buckeyes pulled in seven commitments including one from Booker who spent most of the year as the top-rated player in the state of Ohio. Notre Dame was the closest other team in this recruitment but many around Booker (and teammate Parris Campbell) figured in the end that Ohio State would prevail. Booker is another player that could have likely picked up more offers if he would have had his recruitment go on but kudos to Ohio State for ending the process early before other suitors got in to try and cloud the picture up.

Scouting Report: "There aren't many linebackers in the country that look as good as Dante Booker does running around the field. He is the coaches' mold for the linebacker position. He has speed and he has size and there are times where we see him really put all of those tools into play, but there are also times where he kind of disappears. His consistency will be the key." - Midwest analyst Josh Helmholdt
