Ohio OL Eyeing Nittany Lions

Kettering (Ohio) Alter offensive lineman Bubba Chaffin has been playing varsity football for the past two seasons. The 6-foot-2, 295-pounder, played defensive tackle as a sophomore and moved over to the offensive side of the football as a junior and played both guard and tackle.

"I don't have any scholarship offers right now," Bubba Chaffin said.

"Maryland is sending me hand-written letters. I'm also hearing from Wisconsin, Boston College, West Virginia and Tennessee.

"I've been to Ohio University for a junior day and I'm going to Kent State for a visit on Sunday.

"Ohio University, West Virginia, Maryland, Wisconsin, Penn State, Marshall and Boston College are my favorites right now."

What are Chaffin's plans for the spring and summer?

"I'm going to East Lansing for a camp and I'm going to the Scout.com All-American Combine in Louisville on May 20th.

"I'll probably hit some schools for camps this summer but I'm not sure which ones yet."

What are the strengths to Chaffin's game?

"Well, I love running the football," Chaffin said. "My run blocking ability is pretty good. I want to work on my first step in the off-season and just getting quicker."

Bubba Chaffin carries a 2.5 GPA in the classroom and plans on taking the SAT in May.
