Just earlier this week, Indiana wide receiver Dominique Booth announced that he will no longer be able to play for the Hoosiers due to a large amount of injuries suffered throughout his career. However, he will not let that stop him as he is planning on transferring once he obtains his degree from the school.
Booth released a statement Tuesday night announcing that the team doctors would not medically clear him to continue playing and that he would seek a transfer. However, he said he would stay at school and work as a student coach with the wide receivers until he gets his degree next spring.
Booth has already began looking at other schools as a possible landing spot. He told 247Sports that Mississippi State and Oregon among others are serious candidates for him to land with next spring and he would be visiting the Bulldogs this weekend.
Dominique Booth had a promising start to his career with the Hoosiers. He played in all 12 games during his freshman season in 2014, starting the final six, and catching eight passes for 70 yards during that season. He came to Indiana as a four-star recruit and the fourth-ranked receiver in the state in the class of 2014. Wherever he ends up, he could likely be a great player.
Campus Sports would like to wish him the best of luck in his recovery and we hope to see him on the field in 2017.
