Austin Siereveld has narrowed his college choices to six.

The Lakota East junior announced Thursday he is down to Alabama, Cincinnati, Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State for his college football choices.

“Thank you to all the coaches and schools who have recruited me!” he wrote with a message on social media.

Siereveld is a four-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the country’s No. 325 overall prospect for the class of 2023.

He is the No. 23 interior offensive lineman in the country and the No. 7 prospect in Ohio.

Cincinnati has already gotten five verbal commitments from in-state prospects, including Wayne offensive lineman Evan Tengesdahl and Miamisburg teammates A.J. Salley and Jackson McGohan.

Ohio State has a verbal from Wayne offensive lineman Josh Padilla, who is ranked one spot ahead of Siereveld in the state rankings.

Ohio State picked up a pair of players from Lakota West from the class of 2022 (Tegra Tshabola and Jyaire Brown) and has signed five Firebirds all time but never a football player from Lakota East.

Lakota West’s Malik Hartford is Ohio’s No. 4 prospect and counts offers from Ohio State, Cincinnati and Notre Dame, among others.
