Extra Points: Highly regarded Indianapolis Pike High School WR Dominique Booth announced via Twitter that he had signed financial aid agreement with Indiana. However, that doesn't mean that Booth is signed, sealed, and delivered for the Hoosiers. It is a binding commitment by the school, but not the athlete.
Booth, who plans to graduate from high school this month, is considering both IU and Missouri. He plans to enroll in January at the school of his choice. Landing Booth would continue some positive recruiting momentum for the Hoosiers, who may need a wide receiver if Latimer elects to forego his final year.
