We heard rumors that Arizona commit Daniel Borg was going to take an official visit this weekend to in-state rival Arizona State. Did the lineman indeed make it to Tempe?
“No, I ended up canceling the visit,” Borg said. “I talked to Arizona about it and we both decided it probably wasn’t a very good idea. For me, it wasn’t like I was wavering or anything, I’m 100% solid to Arizona, I just wanted to take a trip somewhere for the fun of it and ASU was the only school that is still recruiting me.
“The Arizona coaches just basically told me that it wouldn’t send a very good message to other players and especially to the other UA commitments if I went and visited. It might look like I’m wavering when I’m not and it could hurt our class. So after hearing that, I decided not to go. Like I said, my commitment is firm and I’m definitely going to be signing with the Cats.”
Borg, 6-5, 290 pounds from Tucson (Ariz.) Ironwood Ridge is one of the top linemen in the West region this year and committed to Arizona back in the summer.
