Today he announced his decision on twitter:

 


We caught up with Miguel and asked him about his decision:

 

PFN: How long have you played football?

Miguel: I started playing flag football when I was 6 and started playing tackle football when I was 10.

PFN: Why did you choose to commit to the Flames?

Miguel: I chose Liberty because I felt like it was the best place that fits me and I built a great relationship with the coaching staff.

PFN: Why commit early?

Miguel: I committed early because I wanted to enroll in to college early and I wanted to focus on the team and win a state championship.

PFN: Who was your biggest influence at Liberty, who recruited you?

Miguel: Coach Aldridge was the one who was recruiting me. We built a great relationship in the past couple of months.

PFN: What are they getting in player like you?

Miguel: They are getting a game changer. I feel like I can’t be blocked and no one can keep up with me. Also I can play every position on the D Line.

PFN: What was the recruiting process like for you?

Miguel: I really enjoyed this process I know it was different with the previous classes but I still enjoyed everything.

PFN: How did the Covid 19 pandemic affect your decision?

Miguel: With everything going on with the COVID 19 pandemic I really didn’t have it affect my decision. Yea I wish I could’ve talked to the coaches in person but that was the only obstacle I faced. Other then that it really didn’t have an affect on my decision.

PFN: What position were you recruited for?

Miguel: They’re recruiting me for D Line. They said I can play any position on the D Line.

PFN: Do you know what you’d like to study?

Miguel: I’m going undecided but I want to major in something that has to do with sports.

PFN: What role did your parents play in your decision?

Miguel: My parents played a big role helping me research about the team and university. They also came up with me to the campus.

PFN: What do you think is the most exciting thing about the Liberty program?

Miguel:  The most exciting thing about Liberty is they got a whole new coaching staff and they won a bowl game last year so they have a winning mentality.

PFN: What are you most looking forward to while playing for the Flames?

Miguel: The thing I’m most looking forward to is playing in college. I always wanted to play college football and I’m turning my dream into a reality.

PFN: Tell everyone out there in the Liberty football world something they’d never know about you until you told them:

Miguel: One thing people at Liberty probably didn’t know about me is that I can play the piano.

PFN: Who is the person who most influenced you in your football career?

Miguel: My parents were my most influential people. They were with me since the start and I want to thank them for that.

PFN: What is it you’d like all your high school teammates and fans to know about your decision that you might have a hard time saying in person?

Miguel: One thing I would like to say to my teammates and fans is thank you for  being there for me for all these years I love y’all.
