 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  For about a month, Oregon football fans stumbled on one piece of crushing news after another whenever they opened social media. Or, it must have felt that way. First, it was Outland Trophy winning tackle Penei Sewell, then standout cornerback Deommodore Lenoir, followed by another cornerback, Thomas Graham Jr., Jevon Holland and eventually Brady Breeze. It spread elsewhere in the Pac-12 North: Levi Onwuzurike and Joe Tryon of Washington, Walker Little and Paulson Adebo of Stanford. Washington State fans had to be skittish. When would all-conference running back Max Borghi join the laundry list of high-profile Pac-12 football players opting out of the 2020 season to get a head start on NFL Draft prep? In truth, those who watch Borghi play on TV probably pondered that idea more than the running back himself.

"No, I only ever considered opting in when everything was going wrong," Borghi said. "I was like, I want to play. This is why I'm here and I love football and I want to play no matter what it takes." No, Borghi isn't garnering the same pre-Draft buzz as Oregon's Sewell, UW's Onwuzurike or many of the other premier Pac-12 opt outs, but Borghi, with 2,154 all-purpose yards and 28 touchdowns, could've followed in their footsteps without getting mush pushback. It wouldn't have hurt to consult a few family members or coaches, right? Borghi, the only Power Five football player in 2019 with 800 rushing yards, 500 receiving yards and at least 16 TDs, says he didn't even get that far in the process. "I made that decision on my own," Borghi said, reiterating "I love the game of football, I would never opt out." - Spokesman-Review
