The four-star Booth announced this past weekend he would commit Friday, but that is no longer the case. The No. 24 receiver in the country will not make a commitment this week.
“We just got out of a conversation, and my plan was to drill him with questions this week,” Booth’s father, Mark, said, “and if I didn’t get the answers I felt were the right answers, then I thought we should wait and make sure.”
The 6-foot, 195-pound receiver and No. 2 player in the state of Indiana was down to Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. The Volunteers are considered the favorite to land Booth’s pledge.
Booth originally was planning to decide earlier this spring and had set a May 1 timetable for a commitment. Not ready to make a decision then, Booth adjusted the timeframe but with the intention of still making a decision in the coming weeks.
All four of Booth’s finalists have received at least one visit, with most hosting Booth twice. It is unclear if Booth will make any more visits before a decision.
