2014 WR Checks Out ND
Dominique Booth is just a sophomore, but the 2014 wide receiver from Indianapolis’ Pike High School is starting to see his recruitment kick into gear.
Booth visited four BCS schools this week and picked up his first scholarship offer along the way. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder stopped at Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Northwestern and left East Lansing with a scholarship offer from the Spartans.
He may not have left South Bend with an offer when he stopped by on Friday, but he was definitely impressed.
“Notre Dame was great,” he said. “It was a different environment. They had great emphasis in practice on how to get things done I like the thoroughness. It was great. I had a great time.
“I like the history of the buildings with all of the art. The Golden Dome and all of that was pretty great. We also noticed that all of the buildings have the same brick and everything. It’s just a great campus.”
Booth liked the wat the Irish practiced.
“It was fast-paced, they got in and out,” he said. “It was an hour and 40 minutes. They only go for an hour and 40 minutes because it limits injuries and also, after a while you get mentally drained. They want all of their players to be focused. I like that mentality.”
He liked the way Notre Dame’s offense looked.
“I saw Gunner Kiel up there, he was doing great,” he said. “The receivers run great routes and they get off jams very well.”
He also had the chance to talk with Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly and assistants Chuck Martin, Tony Alford and Mike Elston.
“(Elston) was just talking about my recruitment and how things were coming along,” said Booth. “At Notre Dame, they have a different process than most. You have to go through an FBI background check and everything. He said don’t take not getting an offer as they don’t love me. They do love me there, they just have to go through more of a process.
“Coach Kelly told me he was happy to have me up there. It was a quick conversation about me coming up and everything was good.”
The two parties will stay in touch moving forward.
“Coach Elston said he’ll be down to see me and I’m planning on coming back up for a scrimmage or something,” Booth said. “We’ll stay in touch and keep building the relationship.”
Notre Dame is one of Booth’s three “dream schools” along with Florida and USC.
“It was a big deal to even get recruited by them and them saying they love me and want me to stay in contact, that’s pretty much one of my dream schools,” he said of the Irish.
Location, coaches and academics will play key roles in his recruitment.
“I’m real big on academics,” he said. “I have a 3.6, my dad’s an assistant superintendent and my mom’s a teacher, so academics are real important in my house.”
Booth doesn’t want to go too far away from home, but could make exceptions for schools like USC and Florida. Offensive system will also be important and he wants to play for coaches who plan on staying at the school, but comfort could end up being the most important factor.
“I have to be in love with the school and the environment because that’s not going to change.”
