Numerous programs began pursuing Booker (at one time Northwestern led) during his monster senior season. In fact, Booker put up 27 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists a game. For his efforts, he was named his state's Gatorade Player of the Year.
Charlotte cranked up its pursuit of Booker within the last 2 months and got it done. "They did a really good job," Booker said. "They said they wanted me and they came to see me and showed a lot of interest in me."
The 49ers have a need for his services and sold him on what his future looked like under the direction of Bobby Lutz. "They'll use me as a shooting forward. They run a four out and one in and I play post and they'll run me out of motion in one-on-one situations against my defender because they want to use my scoring ability."
