Class of 2013 Lineman Does Well at AU Camp

A young offensive lineman talks about his football camp experiences this summer.

Lexington, S.C.--Johnathan Boring, a class of 2013 prospect, was named the most improved offensive lineman at Auburn's recent two-day football camp and he followed that with another solid performance at a one-day prospect camp at Auburn.

Standing 6-3 1/2, 268 pounds and still growing, the 16-year-old Boring will be a junior and a second-year starter this fall at Lexington High School. He plays exclusively on the offensive side of the ball.

The son of former Auburn football player Mike Boring says he enjoyed his back-to-back camps at his father's alma mater. "I learned a lot from the coaches, both the coaches from other high schools and the college coaches," he says. "I thought it was a really good camp.

The center says he may return for another one-day Auburn camp in July. He also plans to check out Clemson and Duke while also focusing on getting stronger. "I have to stay in the weight room this summer," he says.

Boring notes that his early favorites, in no particular order, include Auburn, where he lived before moving to South Carolina, along with Kentucky, Tennessee, Clemson and Duke.

The center prospect has camped at Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and Georgia this summer and says he wants hit camps at Clemson and Duke.

Formerly a three-sport athlete, he will stick with the shot put and discus on the track and field team at Lexington High, but is dropping basketball to concentrate on football.
