The Arizona Wildcat football coaches like to dip into the recruiting pools of Louisiana, grabbing cornerback Jonathan McKnight in 2010, defensive back Cortez Johnson in 2011 … and now Gerron Borne.
Borne, a senior defensive tackle from East St. John High in Reserve, La., committed to Arizona on Tuesday.
Borne, who is rated a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and Scout.com, said he had scholarship offers from Pittsburgh and Tennessee, among others. He was also considering Ole Miss, which had yet to offer but might have at a later time.
Regardless, he said the time was right to commit to Arizona for a variety of reasons.
