Staring his fourth season with the Buckeyes, Dante Booker may finally receive the opportunity to strut his stuff.
Like all teams, there are a few questions about Ohio State going into the 2017 season.
Will the team cope with losing three players in the secondary, given that this is the second year running it has happened? Will new manager Kevin Wilson get the offense back to the former glory of its' 2014 national championship campaign? Will the Buckeyes go back to College Football Playoffs on the third occasion in four years?
These questions are fairly general, and relate to the overall shape of Ohio State in 2017. Until the football begins, we will not find out the answers.
At the moment however, the Buckeyes are busy with spring practice. The team are fourteen days in, as they get ready for the spring match arranged for April 15. By this date, Ohio State --- and its' supporters --- can possibly learn the answers to some questions that are less complicated.
Dante Booker arrived at Columbus as a highly regarded recruit in 2014. He had a four star rating and was the country's number four ranked outside linebacker from Saint Vincent Saint Mary High School. His national ranking as a player was fifty-four.
Today, as Booker gets ready to begin another year at the Buckeyes, he will finally get the opportunity to start --- assuming that he avoids an unforeseen obstacle like the one he encountered in 2016, when he injured his knee in a match against Bowling Green.
