Wisconsin extended a scholarship offer to Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike class of 2014 wide receiver Dominique Booth last April, but the four-star prospect had never seen the campus until Saturday when he attended their home contest against Ohio State.
"I didn't really pre-judge them because I didn't know much about them, just knew they were a winning program," Booth said. "After going they are pretty high on my list now. I love the campus, love the atmosphere of the game and really loved everything about it. They didn't win, but it was a well-fought game and well-played game too."
The trip to Madison also gave Booth a chance to familiarize himself with the Badger's head coach, Bret Bielema.

"Coach B, we talked for a little while," Booth said. "We just talked about how my season went and how they were following me. We talked about Wisconsin and what they are doing with developing new facilities, who was committed to them and who was coming in the next few years. We just had a good talk."
Wisconsin is one of 13 schools that have already extended a scholarship offer to Booth. Next weekend he will see a school that has yet to offer.
"I am going to Ohio State vs. Michigan… last game I will go to this year, so I am trying to go to a big game," Booth said. "I have pretty much seen everything because I have been up there two or three times before, so I am just looking forward to seeing the game and talking to the coaches after about some things."
Now that his junior season is complete and he has a long list of scholarship offers in hand, Booth will start the process of winnowing his list down to the top contenders.
"I don't have a concrete list, but pretty soon I should be narrowing it down to five or so," Booth said. "After my spring break next March I should be making a decision."
The 6-foot-1, 186-pound Booth finished his junior season with 67 catches for 850 yards and 13 touchdowns.
