Pickerington (Ohio) North offensive guard Pat Elflein recently visited two Big Ten schools and those two, plus one school in the Big East, are currently leading.
Elflein was at Northwestern and Purdue recently and the two Big Ten schools rolled out the red carpet for the 6-foot-3, 260-pound offensive guard.
"I visited Northwestern and Purdue recently just for unofficials," Elflein said.
"Northwestern is a real nice school. It's a good school academically. I got to meet everybody there. The defensive line coach is a real good guy. He knows what he's doing.
"Purdue was good, too. They offered, actually. It was a sweet school. I really liked the campus. It was really nice. The coaches were great, too. Overall it was a good visit."
Elflein went on to say that Purdue and Cincinnati are his favorites, adding shortly thereafter that Northwestern is at the top of his list as well.
"I'm going to Ohio State's camp on June 25," he continued. "They pretty much just want to see how I do and I'd like to know if I can get an offer."
Elflein said he plans on making his decision before the start of his senior season.
