Name: Nolan Borgersen

Position: Wide Receiver

Number: #82

Year: Redshirt Freshman

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 200 lbs.

Hometown: Westwood, NJ

High School: Westwood Regional

2014 Stats (High School): Borgersen was a stud in high school and broken the New Jersey state receiving career record for yards (4,212), receptions (246) and touchdowns (52). Brogersen also holds the state record for receiving yards and touchdowns in a single season as well.

2015 Stats: Redshirted

2016 Projections: Steve Addazio is waiting for any wide receiver to step up and develop into a binky receiver for new quarterback Patrick Towles and Borgersen has as good a chance as any. There is no other receiver on the BC roster that has the past production in high school that Borgersen had.

The question for Borgersen is if his high school success can translate to the college game. Based on his offers coming out of high school it appears some schools didn’t think the skills could translate.

A leg injury kept Borgersen off of the field for a huge chunk of last year, so the staff doesn’t have as much intel on him as some of the other players in his class.  Borgersen did get some reps in the spring game and had a beautiful diving catch that was called incomplete. While it was only one play, Borgersen showed a great set of hands on the play and just couldn’t quite get his feet inbounds.

How'd He Get Here: Borgersen was a three-star receiver and received other offers from Maryland, Temple and Central Florida among others. Borgersen committed to BC in July before his senior season. Former offensive coordinator Ryan Day was the lead recruiter for Borgersen.

Uniform History: Former BC great, tight end Pete Mitchell, famously wore the #82 jersey from 1991-94, captaining the Eagles his senior season. Mitchell set both BC's all-time (180) and single-game receptions (13, 1993 game vs. Notre Dame) records during his All-American playing career on the Heights. Another famous #82, WR Kelvin Martin, ranks among the program's best in career points, touchdowns and punt returns. Bridgeport, CT end Joseph Sikorski captained the Eagles wearing the #82 jersey during the 1961 season. Before Borgersen, Jarrett Darmstatter and WR Justin Jarvis wore the number.
