Following the 2019 NFL Draft, former Ohio State linebacker Dante Booker signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted free agent.

A fifth-year senior in 2018, Booker played in 12 games and make 12 total tackles this past season to cap off an injury-plagued Buckeye career.

Booker was a five-star recruit coming out of St. Vincent-St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio, winning Mr. Football in 2013.

During Ohio State’s National Championship run in 2014, Booker played in 11 games as a freshman, but a knee injury in 2016 limited him to just three games, and a shoulder issue kept held him out of four games in 2017.

His 2017 campaign was Booker’s most productive, recording career highs with 31 total tackles and five for loss, making up the bulk of his 74 career tackles in 48 games.

Booker won Big Ten Championships with the Buckeyes in 2014, 2017 and 2018.
