2021 Kicker Commit Andres Borregales Shuts Down Recruitment

2021 Kicker Commit Andres Borregales Shuts Down Recruitment

Matthew Suero
Miami received more good news on Wednesday nightwhen UM commit Andres Borregales from Chaminade-Madonna, the top-rated kicker in the country for the 2021 class, decided to shut down his recruitment and stop talking with other schools.

“I talked about it for a while with my family, and we came to a conclusion about what would be best for me and what I felt would be the best decision for me, and that was UM.”

Borregales’ older brother, Jose Borregales, is a grad transfer kicker from FIU who will handle the place-kicking responsibilities at Miami this upcoming season. His brother, however, did not push him to stick with Miami.

“He was just mentoring me through the process, making sure I’m thinking about all of the pros and cons of each university. It ultimately came down to where I would feel more comfortable to be able to grow into the player I want to be.”

The main school pushing Borregales to flip was UNC, and they did make him think about his decision.

“They understood where I was coming from and they believed that I would be able to accomplish my goals as a player up there in North Carolina. They were really detailed about that, which is why I was very interested in them while being recruited.”

Borregales spent the past couple of weeks at two different kicking camps.

“One was called ‘Top12’ by Chris Sailer and the other was the ‘Scholarship Camp’ from Kohls. I did pretty good in both.”

Borregales also spoke on the relationship that this 2021 class has with one another.

“As a whole, we all know each other and some have been playing against each other since little league. With the Chaminade guys, I have a close relationship with them. I consider them my brothers.”

Borregales is looking to keep the Chaminade to Miami pipeline strong by recruiting 2022 defensive ends Kenyatta Jackson and Jamaal Johnson, who both already have UM offers (UPDATE: Johnson committed to UM later in the day). As for some of the other 2021 players Miami is looking to add to the class, Borregales is letting a player who is widely considered the class ambassador handle that.

“I haven’t really talked to any of the targets in the ‘21 class but Kahlil (Brantley) has that on lock.”

Chaminade does not allow players to graduate early, so Borregales will have to wait until May to enroll at Miami. Until then, he will focus on helping Chaminade win their 4th straight state title and try to improve on his own kicking records. His personal in-game long is 57 yards, while his long in practice is 65 yards.
