Recruiting: Booker Pleased With Visit

One of the major objectives of this recruiting weekend for Oklahoma State was finding additional help, mature help from the junior college ranks, at linebacker. The OSU coaching staff has already secured one junior college linebacker and he is a good one. as Donald Booker earned first-team All-American honors from both NJCAA and J.C. Gridwire.

The Navarro (Texas) College product, originally out of Klein Forest High School near Houston, was in for his official visit this weekend. He saw the other two junior college linebackers on campus but didn't learn much.

"I saw them and talked to them (Patrick Trahan out of Northwest Mississippi C.C. and J.R. Bryant out of Garden City C.C.)," said Booker. "I didn't really learn anything."

The 6-0, 225-pound Booker made close to 160 tackles this past season in earning his All-American stripes and committed to Oklahoma State in December before the Cowboys left for the bowl game. He had not visited OSU but liked what he saw over the weekend.

"It went good, Jacob Lacey, the cornerback, showed me around and he's a good guy," said Booker. "The players are really friendly and great to hang out with. You spend a few minutes around them and you feel like you've been on the team for a year. I'm ready to go. I'm settled and ready to play for the Cowboys."

The question is will he get any more older help at linebacker?
