Recruiting Scene: Hookers path to NC State was an interesting one. He camped at State in 2014 but was somewhat overweight and slow. However, the Wolfpack coaches liked his instincts and production on the field. They let him know if lost weight and came back in 2015 trimmer and faster they’d offer a scholarship. Hooker did just that and the Pack made good on their promise. He held an offer from UNC but committed to State just hours after landing a Wolfpack offer.

Picked NC State Over: UNC

Scouting Report: Hooker is a physical, downhill linebacker. He has good size and strength. Hooker does nice job of reading and reacting to plays. He also has good instincts and tackles extremely well. He needs to continue to work on his agility, but he has a huge upside and his best football is ahead of him. - Scout recruiting analyst Michael Clark
