Calvin Booker leaves
This is a surprise to nobody.
Booker was signed in 2004 out of a high school in Atlanta. Scouts were mixed on him from the beginning because Booker was difficult to categorize. He's fast, he has a great attitude and his arm strength was considered above-average at the time.
The down side was Booker's footwork, which can be described as below-average. Or worse. During his time at Auburn, the footwork improved only marginally. He competed with Blake Field for more than a year to become the team's backup behind Brandon Cox. Field graded out higher every time because of superior accuracy and better form.
Booker simply couldn't throw spirals consistently, and the awkward footwork prevented him from throwing with authority. The arm strength never developed. He's a significant step down from Blake Field.
Booker turned off some teammates with his attitude. Some found his ultra-confident demeanor inspiring, though others felt Booker was too inexperienced to talk tough toward the team's veteran players.
When Neil Caudle and Steven Ensminger signed in February, that was a wrap for Booker. His situation at Auburn became terminal. There was no room.
I like Booker personally. I do not think he can play quarterback at Georgia Tech.
