    The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.

    Georgia athlete Chief Borders told Eleven Warriors and then announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he has received an offer from Ohio State.

    Borders made a visit to Columbus a couple of weekends ago, and following that visit, he told Eleven Warriors he could feel that an Ohio State offer was coming his way soon. He had developed good relationships with defensive coordinator Greg Mattison and linebackers coach Al Washington dating back to their time at Michigan, but he hadn’t earned the verbal offer form the Buckeyes yet. That changed when Washington reached out to him Monday.

    “Coach Washington said I was a stellar student-athlete on and off the field, and then he offered me a full-ride scholarship to The Ohio State University,” Borders told Eleven Warriors.

    This offer is one that pushes Borders’ recruitment to another level. He does have offers from Auburn, Georgia and Oregon, but an offer from Ohio State was one he had made a remark about when I talked with him in April. He really wanted this offer.

    I detailed in July 31’s Hurry Up what Borders and his dad had done to get his name out there and get him in front of eyes and the performance he had in the Under Armour All-America Camp in Cincinnati, but the Ohio State staff likes to meet prospects and see them in person before extending offers. This process made sense, and the offer is a logical one.

    Depending on the way he develops, which seems like he will continue to add weight, Borders could play either the bullet or outside linebacker. At the moment, he seems mostly like an outside linebacker because he has the perfect skillset for the evolving linebacker responsibilities. He can plug holes, attack the line aggressively and play in pass coverage.

    Borders is the real deal at linebacker in the 2021 class, and the Buckeye staff appears to feel the same way.
