In his lone season with the program, Borders recorded nine tackles, including half a tackle for loss and one pass breakup. He also spent two seasons with the Florida Gators, playing in 16 games over two seasons, including 12 games in 2022.

Borders was a three-star prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle, according to both 247Sports and Rivals, while ESPN ranked Borders as a four-star star prospect and the No.124 prospect in the country.
