Booth rushed for over 1,000 yards last season and considers himself a combo back, one who can go between the tackles and has "homerun hitter" speed.
He visited Arizona prior to the Memorial Day weekend and liked what he saw.
""It was a great fit," Booth said of his decision to commit.
He was recruited by offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh and met extensively on his visit with running backs coach Dana Dimel.
Herman Hall was his host and the fact that the junior offensive lineman also went the JC route was a bonding point for he and Booth.
Booth did not qualify out of high school and attended the College of DuPage. The Wildcats got into the picture about four weeks ago.
Booth said he plans on getting back to Tucson in the next few weeks and joining the off-season workout program.
