Pickerington (Ohio) North junior offensive lineman Justin Boren will be one of the top prospects in the state of Ohio next season.
Boren, a 6-foot-4, 295 pounder, was a varsity starter at Pickerington Central his freshman year, playing offensive guard. His sophomore and junior seasons Boren started at offensive tackle for Pickerington North.
Boren's father Mike played for Columbus (Ohio) Eastmoor, then played middle linebacker for Michigan from 1980 through 1984.
"I get mail from Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Boston College, Miami of Ohio, Cincinnati, Miami of Florida, that's about it so far," Justin Boren said. "And Northwestern and Indiana.
"Ohio State has offered me.
"I've been to three Michigan games and one Ohio State game. I went to the Ohio State-Indiana game."
Asked if he has a favorite, Boren said, "Ohio State and Michigan, I'm pretty interested in both. But I wouldn't say I have a favorite.
"My dad played up at Michigan, but Ohio State started recruiting me as a sophomore."
