I am going to give you a name here....Booker reminds me of Keon Clark, anybody else see it? Probably a little more talented and a better shooter, but the build, springiness, and the way he moved reminds me of him.

I could be off with this as I didn't follow recruiting in '15/'16 like I do now, but he sort of reminds me of a younger, pre-injury De'Ron Davis. 

Not a good comp for me at all. A pre-njury DeRon was skilled, out of shape, wide, and could barely jump. A post-injury DeRon had a rarely achieved vertical of negative 2".  He actually sunk further into the floor when he tried to lift off.

Booker is very long, very skinny, very raw, and very bouncy.

I'm terrible at player comps so I probably should have kept that though to myself. I only remember a little about DeRon's pre-injury play style but I do recall him being highly rated out of high school and that Achilles injury robbing him of a lot of ability.  I agree Xavier has a better bounce and still think they look kinda similar at that age.

Need to see more of Booker to firm up an opinion, but he reminds me some of Chris Boucher, who played at Oregon and has had a nice run with Raptors. Booker can get bigger physically, Boucher’s always been limited by his frame, and he can have more of a true post presence. Also doubt he’s the rim protector Boucher is, few are. But long rim-running bigs with defensive versatility and 3 point range are pretty much the holy grail of today’s game.
