As the Texas High School Football season continues, so does the recruitment of many athletes around the country-- especially those within powerhouse programs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As more schools contact more athletes, plenty of fans wonder where some of their favorites are going to end up at the end of their high school careers. DeSoto 3-star linebacker, Brandon Booker, recently announced his de-commitment from Stanford. VYPE DFW caught up with Booker regarding his decision:
Booker took to social media on Sunday to announce his decision to de-commit from Stanford. "After careful consideration and thinking into this decision in my life I am decommitting from Stanford and I thank y'all for everything that was showed to me and I thank y'all for the visit and hospitality," wrote Booker in a Tweet.
"I felt like the school wasn't for me and I didn't want to be that far from home," Booker told VYPE. Booker's decision to de-commit comes just over three months after his decision to de-commit from Baylor before committing to Stanford. The state champion is rated as the 60th-best linebacker in the nation per a 247Sports composite. Helping his team to a state title victory last season, the 6-foot-2 athlete tallied 144 tackles (10.5 for a loss) and four interceptions while also recording two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
As fans across social media try to encourage Booker to be warm on their favorite schools, others speculate that he will announce a re-commitment to Baylor. Booker cleared the air with VYPE on Monday morning: "I'm not looking to re-commit to the Bears."
In back-to-back victories to start the 2023-24 season, Booker is part of a 2-0 DeSoto team that has defeated Allen (39-7) and South Oak Cliff (54-14). As he stares down his first district game of the season against Dallas Skyline on Friday, September 15, Booker laid out his goals for VYPE. "My goals are to do better than I did last season, win state again, and go to a college I'm comfortable at."
With a common goal of finishing as the sole state champion in each of their classifications, teams are geared up to give it their all on the gridiron in the 2023-24 Texas High School Football season. As two-a-day practices get underway, it’s that time of year again: VYPE DFW has your Dallas-Fort Worth Area high school football preseason rankings ready!
