Booker, a tight end from Waunakee High School, is among the best at his position in the 2024 class. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound tight end is the 23rd-ranked TE in the class and the fifth-ranked player in Wisconsin.
Booker visited Wisconsin this past weekend on junior day. Just a few days later, he announced he’ll play in Madison.
Booker held ten total offers. Among those were Big Ten schools like Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan State, and Purdue. Additionally, he had offers from Iowa State, Kansas, Pitt, and Syracuse.
The young tight end is an excellent fit for Wisconsin’s offense. Booker has outstanding athleticism, making him a threat in the open field. His frame also gives him a leg up in contested catch situations.
In 2022, Booker hauled in 27 catches for 380 yards and six touchdowns. Booker’s ability as a receiving threat makes him intriguing for Wisconsin. As he showed in his junior year at Waunakee, he is a significant threat in the red zone. If he becomes a contributor for Wisconsin and adds to his frame, he’ll be a red-zone target at the next level as well.
Booker is now the third recruit in the 2024 class and the second tight end of the class. Four-star tight end Grant Stec committed to UW on Sunday, and now Booker joins the room. Quarterback Mabrey Mettauer is the third recruit in the class. Wisconsin has loaded up on offensive weapons thus far for 2024.
