Lon Kruger and Oklahoma picked up a commitment Friday from what is likely to be the final piece to their 2013 class in Georgia shooting guard, Frank Booker. Booker was in Norman a little over a week ago for an official visit and word quickly started to spread that he had committed while there. Well, that proved to be a tad premature as Booker did not make it official until this Thursday during an announcement ceremony at his high school.
As a player, Booker is a combo guard who is probably more known for his shooting but can do a number of things well on the court. He is a guy who is just as comfortable slashing to the basket as he is pulling up for a jumper on the break. He is a player who has the utmost confidence in his shot, so misses will very rarely deter him from continuing to put it up. Like a lot of high school players, he'll definitely need to add some strength once he arrives on campus to be able to hold up over the course of a full D-I season. With his shot and ability to get to the basket, he's a player with a considerable upside.
The bottom line with Booker is he's a guy who can put the ball in the basket and that, meaning scoring, is something this Oklahoma team certainly needs. Especially when you consider all that it will be losing following this season.
Welcome to Sooner Nation, Frank!
