Daniel Borg update

Daniel Borg was the best player at this past weekend's big man camp on the Arizona campus. Allen Wallace caught up with the native Tucsonan.

With Notre Dame offering on 6/13, Tucson Ironwood Ridge (Az) OL Daniel Borg's (6-6, 285, 5.3) offer total is up to 15. Also count in Arizona, Washington, Oregon St, Stanford, Oregon, Utah, Arizona St, Northwestern, BYU, Nebraska, Vanderbilt, Duke, Colorado, and Colorado St. The Huskies lead slightly over the (hometown) Wildcats, Cornhuskers, and Beavers.

"I've had the chance to go up to UW a couple of times and see what it's like. My friend Tyler Pelluer plays high school ball up there--his dad (Scott Pelluer) is the TE coach at Washington.

"When his dad coached at Arizona, Tyler and I played together. (Tyler's being recruited at LB by the service academies, Stanford and Montana). I'm kind of waiting to see what kind of penalties the NCAA imposes on Washington. It's unstable right now.

"I see a great opportunity to play early and be an impact player at Arizona. I love the attitude of Mike Stoops. The line coach (Eric Wolford) is a great guy--I've had chance to spend some time with him and do drills with him (at the Arizona big man camp). The strength coaches (Corey Edmond and Mark Hill) are great too; they came over from Oklahoma with Coach Stoops. My mom wants me to go to U of A.

"Nebraska has tradition, fan support, a history of great linemen. I'm going out there tomorrow (6/15) so that I can get a good feel for the school.

"Utah, Notre Dame and Northwestern are darkhorses, schools I want to learn more about, schools that I don't know much about yet.

"I'm really starting to narrow it down, going to Nebraska and the camps (Arizona St, Washington). I'll make my decision between the end of Nov and Jan. If I don't have to take all of my visits...if I make up my mind before I take all my visits, then I won't go on all of them.

"I want to see how the schools do this year, how Washington ends up, how the new coaches at Arizona and Nebraska do.

"I'm looking for playing opportunities and position coaches I can feel comfortable with."
