It has been a pretty quiet spring for the Eagles, and there hasn’t been much to report from their practice reports. Typically the practice reports talk about sophomore QB E.J. Perry IV making some plays, a few defensive players making a highlight reel play here and there, and nothing else of real note. However, slipped into today’s practice report was an interesting note.
In the notes it ended with “junior Nolan Borgersen worked at safety for the first time Tuesday. “ Borgersen, hasn’t had any real playing time at WR with the Eagles over his first three years at the school. He was redshirted his freshman year, and then became a special teamer the past two years. Many fans have asked about him because he owns the New Jersey state record in receiving yards, catches and touchdowns.
However, it seems that other wide outs have jumped ahead of him on the depth chart, and will remain there with Kobay White, Michael Walker, Jeff Smith, Chris Garrison all cementing their roles. Add in C.J. Lewis who came in strong near the end and an impressive spring from Noah Jordan Williams and Borgersen’s role appears in jeopardy.
Again, according to the report this was the first practice the 6’2 Borgersen played at safety, but still an interest situation to watch.
