2012 Media Guide: Pat Elflein didn’t wrestle with his decision about which school to attend once he received a scholarship offer from Ohio State … as a result, the Buckeyes’ recruiting class has two of
the 2011 Associated Press first-team Division I all-state offensive linemen: Elflein and Jacoby Boren,
from cross-town school Pickerington Central … in Elflein, the No. 22 offensive guard prospect in the
nation by ESPNU and the No. 31 guard by Scout.com, the Buckeyes are getting a rock solid worker,
someone who has spent his summers pouring and breaking up concrete after already working through a full high school calendar year of sports and studies … a four-year football letterman and a two-time football team captain, Elflein earned 12 letters in his high school career, four each in the sports of football, wrestling and track and field … he has been named in football to all-Ohio Capital Conference, all-Central District and to the Dispatch’s all-Metro teams … he was the 2011 wrestler of the year in the OCC and was a state and national qualifier.
Personal: An older brother, Matt, played linebacker for Ohio Dominican … their parents are Lisa and Kenneth Elflein.
