Former Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth Jr. is making waves early on at Minnesota Vikings training camp.

After recovering from sports hernia surgery conducted earlier this year, Booth fully participated in activities on Wednesday, and the former Clemson standout is glad to be back on the field at full strength.

“It felt great,” Booth said on Wednesday. “Just seeing full speed offense, different looks. I’m seeing the best in (Justin Jefferson) every day, so that’s going to get me ready for game one.”

While Booth was playing with Minnesota’s second team unit, he showed flashes, one of which was this sliding interception.

 

As for his fit on Minnesota’s defense, Booth’s experience in Brent Venables’ scheme at Clemson is serving him well.

“I came from Clemson, and coach Venables’ defense was very complex, and this defense is very complex as well,” Booth said.

Booth had 37 total tackles, three interceptions and five passes defended in 11 games with Clemson last season, earning First-Team All-ACC honors.

On the Vikings, he will have to earn a starting spot, but Wednesday’s performance is a good sign.
