Former Ohio State WR earned rookie minicamp invite with Washington Commanders
Another Ohio State wide receiver will get the chance to show what he can do at the next level.
Former Buckeye receiver Chris Booker has earned an invitation to attend the Washington Commanders’ rookie minicamp. He is one of 16 players to get the opportunity to prove himself on the field. Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post had the list on Friday.
Ohio State saw two receivers — Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave — selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Additionally, former Buckeyes tight end Jeremy Ruckert was taken in the third round.
Former Ohio State receiver Jameson Williams, who transferred to Alabama to finish his career, was also taken in the opening round of the NFL Draft.
In addition to their 8 drafted rookies, 13 UDFAs and 3 first-year players (Nolan Laufenberg, Tyler Clark and David Bada), the Commanders invited 16 players for rookie camp tryouts this week: pic.twitter.com/gwE4uuYrE7

Booker appeared in 19 career games during his time at Ohio State, joining the team in 2019 as a walk-on receiver. He caught 2 passes for 27 yards during the 2021 campaign.
His first collegiate reception came in Ohio State’s blowout win over Akron, a 17-yard catch. He caught his second pass a few weeks later in the Buckeyes’ thrashing of Indiana, that one going for 11 yards.
At the end of the 2020 season, Booker was an Academic All-B1G selection.
