Missouri picked up a commitment from Michigan offensive lineman Larry Borom just before the festivities of Night at the Zou began.
|Height, Weight||6'6, 320|
|City (School)||Bloomfield Hills, MI (Brother Rice)|
|Rating (Rivals, Scout, 247Sports)||2* (5.4)/2*/NR/NR|
|Offers||Eastern Kentucky, Ferris State, Northwood (MI)|
Flying low on the recruiting radar, Borom does not hold any offers from FBS schools and only recently received an offer from Missouri on June 12. According to Allen Trieu of Scout Recruiting, Borom stated that he chose Missouri because "they made it big to me that they're a family and family matters." Trieu also stated that Coach Elarbee was impressed by Borom's athleticism and speed for his size according to the lineman.
Borom does an excellent job of controlling defensive lineman, overpowering them with strength and beating them with speed. He has a smooth style of play, facing his lineman and directing them out of the way of his quarterback.
According to ESPN, Borom's SPARQ score was 91.83 which is pretty damn good.
Barry Odom and Glen Elarbee have put together a growing list of offensive linemen in the class of 2017, as Borom joins Hyrin White and Pompey Coleman on the commitment list. He might not see much playing time early on, but look for Elarbee to mold this underrated lineman into a legitimate starter.
