Hooker
SCOUTING REPORT: Hooker's versatility cannot be overemphasized. He will head to Ohio State to play safety, but there is always the thought of him playing receiver because he runs well and he has good hands. Once he adds a bit more strength, though, he can be an impact player on the field. Hooker has the ability to cover sideline to sideline, and the mentality to be a big hitter in the secondary. He plays fast, but he is in control of his body and the situation.

WHY Ohio STATE: "I just felt the time was right. I sat down with my coaches and my family and we talked about it. When I went there the first time I felt a spark, and that it was the place to be."
