Wisconsin football recruiting: ATH Titus Booker decommits from Indiana, becomes Badgers' 23rd commit for 2015

The Grayslake, Ill., prospect is someone the Badgers liked since camp, and he has the athleticism to develop into a quality cornerback.

The Wisconsin Badgers' summer camp was a definite success. The Badgers grabbed five prospects that weekend alone. Soon to follow was David EdwardsMohamed Barry was to be seventh, but that was not meant to be.

Saturday, the Badgers found themselves a seventh camper to commit when three-star Grayslake, (North) Ill., athlete Titus Booker decommitted from the Indiana Hoosiers and became a Badger.

Booker brings to the table the kind of size (6'0, 182 lbs.) and athleticism (SPARQ-verified 40 time at 4.41, and state-level 100m sprinter's speed) that had kept him on the Badgers' radar since an impressive performance in summer camp. In fact, reports were that when he was offered at camp, he was ready to commit ($) on the spot, but there were reasons the Badgers hesitated to accept. Now with the academic i's and t's seemingly crossed, he joins X'Zaviae Ausborne and Takadrae Williams as commits at the cornerback position.

This definitely also provides a shake-up to the cornerback board. All expectations were that if any cornerback was going to commit today, it was going to be Virginia Beach (Ocean Lakes) recruit T.J. Griffin, who was also on-site for today's game. Expectations were that the Badgers were only going to take two more cornerbacks in this recruiting cycle. With Booker reserving one of those spots, there's a logjam at the position.

So we're not saying that the Badgers are moving on from three-star Carmel, Ind., cornerback prospect Isaac James. But in the seeming staring contest that has developed in his recruitment, James might have to hustle up a commitment to the W if there's going to be space available, because the Badgers might find themselves on a run.
