Nebraska Gains Portal Addition in Florida Edge Chief Borders

December 20, 2022

Nebraska’s defense got yet another weapon in its arsenal on Tuesday with a transfer portal commitment.

Chief Borders, an edge rusher previously enrolled for two seasons at Florida, announced his decision to join fellow former Gators Marco Ortiz and Corey Collier Jr. in Lincoln. He took his official visit to Lincoln last weekend.

Borders, 6-foot-5, 242 pounds, will enroll at Nebraska with three years of eligibility.

Borders played predominantly on special teams in all 12 games for Florida during the season, tallying two tackles. He redshirted in 2021. Out of Heard County High School in Georgia, he was a composite 4-star recruit who also competed in track. Borders originally chose Florida over myriad schools including Michigan State, Auburn, Stanford and Arkansas.

He is Nebraska’s fourth transfer portal addition of the season following his two fellow former Gators and former Georgia Tech quarterback Jeff Sims.

Nebraska ranks No. 44 in the composite recruiting rankings just ahead of Early National Signing Day on Wednesday. Not including portal additions, Matt Rhule and his coaching staff have secured 19 commitments.
