Daniel Borg returns home from Husker camp

Daniel Borg returned home Thursday night to Tucson from Nebraska. He attended camp in Lincoln earlier that week and came home with a clear opinion about his feelings about Nebraska.

Daniel Borg was offered pretty early in March by Nebraska. In fact, Nebraska was one of the first three teams to offer Borg along with Arizona and Vanderbilt. The Tucson (Ariz.) Ironwood Ridge offensive tackle is now up to around 15 offers.

There was definite interest in Nebraska as Borg left to attend a summer camp in Lincoln, Nebr. What happened on the trip and in Nebraska though Daniel just can't put a finger on what he felt.

"Nebraska looks great on paper," Borg said. "I didn't really think that I fit in there. I'm not interested in Nebraska anymore."

"Maybe it's a little bit too far away from home? I just didn't get a good feel. They have great tradition there, great facilities and everything. It really looks good on paper."

The recent ruling out of Nebraska for Borg has him thinking that his current top three are Arizona, Washington and Oregon State. He is also interested in getting a better feel for Utah, Notre Dame and Northwestern. He said that those six schools have all offered.

Borg is off to camp at Washington this coming week and after that there are no more camp plans set.

Borg had this to add about his trip to Nebraska, "It's nothing about their program. If you fit in there it's great. If I felt like I fit in there it would be a great school to go to."

Last year Borg was second team all-state, first team all-Southern Arizona, first team all-region offensive tackle, second team all-region defensive tackle.
