WR Booth will make unofficial to OSU

The next name to make an unofficial visit to Ohio State might ring a bell.

He’s coming to the Sept. 15 game against California and he’s arriving in Columbus with Ohio ties.

His name is Dominique Booth (Indianapolis/Pike) and he comes from a football family.

His uncle Issac played defensive back for the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens, his grandfather was an offensive lineman at Temple and his father Mark played wide receiver at Taylor University.

But Dominique could be the best of the bunch as the 2014 wide receiver already has offers from Cal, Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Kentucky, Michigan State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Purdue and Wisconsin.

Booth has interest from virtually everyone else, including Ohio State, which is why he’s coming to town to watch the Buckeyes play the Golden Bears. As an aside, Uncle Issac starred at Cal.

Booth expects to see the same passion he saw out of the Ohio State fans when he visited the Buckeyes during their spring game and equal fervor in the coaches he saw when he participated in an Ohio State camp on June 22.

“I want to see the ball getting moved down the field,” Dominique said. “I expect great things out of them.

“I’m looking forward to the atmosphere. I got to go to the spring game and it was great. I’m expecting it to be awesome for a regular season game. I don’t want to go where there isn’t any support. I know there is support there. I know what to expect.”

The wideout is one of the most highly sought athletes in the class of 2014 after a sophomore season that saw the 6-foot-1, 195-pound Booth make 46 catches for 585 yards with five touchdowns.
