Three weeks after making his visit to University of Oklahoma, shooting guard Frank Booker committed on March 21 to play for Lou Kruger in Norman. The three-star recruit was being courted by the likes of Texas A&M, Tennessee, and La Salle. The visit to Oklahoma must have made the biggest impact because Booker was planning on visiting other campuses.
Frank Booker Sr, the shooting guard’s father, told Bob Przybylo of ESPN, “on the plane ride back, he was basically saying he was ready to commit to OU right then. I felt it, too. We talked to other schools, but we just didn’t feel it like we did when we were at OU.”
Booker is a combination guard and with his 6-foot-4 frame, he has good size. He has good energy and presence on the offensive end of the floor. Booker can handle the ball and is a good passer who is dangerous on the fast break. He can attack the basket but isn’t afraid to pull up on any spot of the floor to knock down a jumper.
Also, Booker has great upside if he can continue to improve his game. While leading Augusta Westside to the Georgia State Championship, Booker finished his senior season averaging 28 points and 14 rebounds per game.
Oklahoma has also signed three-star point guard Jordan Woodard. They will be the future backcourt of the Sooners. Coach Kruger needed some scoring guards, especially since Oklahoma is losing Steven Pledger and Romero Osby, who were the Sooners’ top scorers.
The first day that recruits can sign in the spring term is April 17.
