Recruiting: Booker Confirms He's A Cowboy

Junior college (NJCAA) All-American linebacker Donald Booker out of Navarro College has been hard to reach, but the 6-0, 225-pound strongside linebacker confirmed that he is visiting Oklahoma State on Jan. 11 and that he has given the Cowboy coaching staff a verbal commitment.

"I committed to Oklahoma State," said Booker. "I don't remember exactly whether it was a week and a half ago or maybe two weeks.

"I was waiting on Miami and was also recruited by Tulsa, UAB, Mississippi, Southern Miss, and some others. I chose OKlahoma State because of the chance I have to plan immediately. They lost a lot of players and said I could come in and play right away. They looked pretty good in that bowl win the other day."

Booker, who is originally out of Klein Forest High School outside of Houston, had a monster 161 total tackles this past season, including 107 unassisted tackles. He also had 9.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. Booker has really good speed with 4.6 clockings in the 40-yard dash. Not only was he a first-team All American, but he was also first team All-Southwest Junior College Conference.

Booker said he intends to major in coaching, business, or special education. He will be able to report to OSU in the summer as he will need the spring semester to finish his degreee at Navarro.
