Booker is the first senior to be drafted in the 2010 class. The 6-foot-7, 236-pound Booker is a physical presence. He averaged 15.2 points and 8.4 rebounds for the Tigers last year.
If the Timberwolves decide to keep him, their 2010 class will be on the older side. The Wolves drafted Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson with the fourth overall pick. Johnson will turn 23 in July.
Minnesota also has two second-round picks.
