GA QB picks up 1st big offer

Calvin Booker is arguably the top pure passing quarterback in the state of Georgia this year. He has had five different head coaches in his tenure at Mays High School in Atlanta, GA, and it has affected his production on the field. It has been hard for him to get any looks before this summer because of that lack of production, but now that he is hitting the camp circuit and competing on level playing fields, his talent is shining through.

Booker participated at the Nike Camp at Auburn in May, and he earned an invite to Las Vegas for the EA Sports Elite 11 workout camp that is a selection camp for the true Elite 11 quarterback camp in August. "He was probably the best quarterback there that day," said West Coast Recruiting Analyst and Elite 11 Scout Greg Biggins. "That kid is a stud."

Booker and his Mays teammates went to Auburn last Thursday and Friday, and he impressed more than a couple of TheInsiders.com recruiting analysts. His Mays team won the two day passing competition, beating a loaded Tucker team twice in overtime over the course of the competition. Booker earned a scholarship offer from Auburn last week with his impressive showing.

"We got to tour the campus and see all of the facilities while I was here," said Booker. "I had a really good time. I toured the campus with Thomas Brown of Tucker. Auburn offered me a scholarship after my performance at the camp. I know I want to take all of my visits before I make a decision."

Auburn was Booker's first D1 offer, but as more and more coaches get to see him throw the ball, it will not be his last. Booker will be participating in the Governor's Honors program this summer in Executive Business Management as well as showcasing his arm at various camps around the country.
