Bolingbrook junior linebacker Tuf Borland is one of the hottest prospects in the state.
The Scout.com four-star prospect took a return trip to Ohio State for the Buckeyes spring game and committed while on campus Friday.
Borland tweeted: “Extremely excited to say I’ve decided to attend The Ohio State University.”
Borland had previously visited Ohio State and one of the most exciting parts of the visit was spending time with defensive coordinator and linebacker coach Luke Fickell.
“I actually got to spend two hours sitting down with Coach Fickell during the junior day in his office,” Boland said. “So I got to know him a lot better as a person. Then also from a philosophy standpoint, we talked some football.”
Borland is a hard-hitting, projected middle linebacker who values the X’s and O’s of the game. He is one of the integral pieces of the Raiders defense, and recorded 110 tackles, four sacks a forced fumble and an interception on his way to the All-Area team.
