Our View: Titus Booker played primarily running back at the high school level, but he chose the Badgers offer at cornerback over other schools who did offer as a running back — including a late charge by Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines.

Let’s just say this kid has speed for days and the size that’s needed to play cornerback at the next level. In fact, it really appears that Booker has come around to prefer playing there after talking with not only the old coaching staff but the new one as well.

His 10.65 100-yard dash speed (runner up in the state of Illinois last year) proves he can close on receivers and when looking at corners there are two things you either have or don’t, and they are size and speed. Booker possesses both of them, but he’ll have to be a quick study to make up for the lack of experience overall at the position.

The good news is the Badgers won’t need him to be an immediate contributor at the position unless injuries rear their ugly head. Expect hm to be a redshirt and someone to watch in another year or two in the starting lineup.
