Oft overlooked, Miami addressed it’s kicker situation for the future when Hollywood (FL) Chaminade-Madonna 2021 K Andres Borregales committed to Miami.
One of several players in the current and, in his case, future classes from Chaminade committed to Miami, Borregales is as elite as elite gets for a kicking prospect. On top of his own skills, which are impressive, Borregales comes from a strong kicking pedigree, as he is the younger brother of former Miami Booker T. Washington and current FIU kicker José Borregales.
Slight of frame at 5’10” 140lbs, the younger Borregales has a very strong leg, and has been known to routinely hit from 50+ yards. Like all HSFB players, he has part of his game he can improve, but his skills are very strong and should only improve over time.
Borregales is the #1 ranked kicker in his class by Kohl’s Kicking. Here is their blurb on him, from their website:
Borregales recently attended a Kohl’s May Showcase. He tore it up! Borreglas has a brother who is a current D1 starter and he has a stronger leg than his brother at this point in time. His KO charts in Atlanta were special and the ball was jumping on FG drill work as well. His improvement since January is noticeable. Borregales already has D1 offers which is rare for someone his age. He has moved into the category of a special talent and is still not done growing. Borregales has attended Kohl’s camps since he was in middle school and his improvement and work ethic is impressive!
Borregales picked Miami over offers from FIU, where his brother plays, and Southern Miss. He is the first, and likely only, kicker in Miami’s top-ranked 2021 recruiting class.
