Tennessee Football Recruiting: Dominique Booth visits Vanderbilt


After taking a visit to the Alabama Crimson Tide yesterday, 2014 four-star wide receiver Dominique Booth will visit the Vanderbilt Commodores today and check out another SEC school that he has a high amount of interest in. The Tennessee Volunteers lean has been predicted by all five experts on 247Sports to commit to Tennessee, but he is also high on the Florida State Seminoles, Virginia Tech Hokies, and West Virginia Mountaineers.

One of the top 200 recruits in the class overall, Booth has eliminated almost every other team in his recruitment, and that includes major programs like the Michigan State Spartans and Wisconsin Badgers who offered. Booth has dwindled down his recruitment, and three schools that weren’t eliminated (aside from those “leans” mentioned in the first paragraph) are the Missouri Tigers, Georgia Bulldogs, and Oregon Ducks. Of those three schools, only Missouri has offered Booth.

Earlier this month, the 6’1″, 200 pound receiver took visits to Tennessee, Florida State, Georgia, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Alabama. It was a busy period for Booth, and he received his offer from Alabama while unofficially visiting the Tide on April Fool’s Day. The top 20 wide receiver took visits shortly before then to Mississippi State and to Auburn for the Tigers junior day.

Dominique Booth is one of the most heavily recruited players in the country, and his recruitment is really starting to take shape after he cut his list about a week ago. The consensus best recruit in the state of Indiana has an excellent pedigree, and he caught 67 passes for 853 yards and 13 touchdowns for Pike High last season. Some say the Indiana Hoosiers still have a shot at landing the top in-state prize, but I doubt that happens given the standing schools like Alabama and Tennessee are in. Booth has great speed, good strength, is an excellent route-runner, and he can beat you in so many different ways. Although he isn’t elite in one particular facet of the game, he is either solid or well above-average in all facets.
