Borges on why he chose Ohio State
“I chose Ohio State for a few reasons. I immediately saw the passion Coach Myers and his staff had for the players, which makes it so much more than a team, it's a family. I also fell in love with the campus and the atmosphere as a whole the first time I got out there. It's truly something special to be a part of. Ohio State will give me the opportunity to succeed on and off the field.”
