Three-star DL Michai Boreau is coming out of Florida

Hampton (Ga.) Creekside 2024 three-star defensive lineman Michael Burrow It has been pulled from Florida, multiple sources confirmed to Swamp247 on Monday.

Florida’s 2024 recruiting class, which includes 21 commits, still ranks third nationally despite Boero’s decision. Boireau is ranked No. 88 among 2,024 defensive linemen and No. 102 in the state of Georgia in the independent 247Sports rankings, and is viewed slightly more favorably in the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, where he is ranked No. 72 at his position and No. 10. 79 in his state. Many talent evaluators believe Boireau is set to make a big jump in the rankings.

A summer commit to the Gators, Boireau was part of a historic string of commitments that boosted the Gators in the national rankings.

He said his decision to commit to the Gators was based on a strong relationship with their coaching staff.

“When I went to OV I felt the love here that I didn’t really feel at other schools,” Boero told Swamp247. “It was just, from the time I got off the runner truck, it was all love from there. Even when I got back in the runner truck and went home, Coach would text me every morning, send me scriptures, motivational quotes, stuff like wh-t-t-t.”

According to 247Sports Director of Recruiting Stephen Wiltfong, Georgia immediately became the school keeping tabs on Boireau’s pledge.

The 6-foot-5, 390-pound Boireau has long been a prime target for the head coach Kirby Smart and his staff, who narrowly missed out on acquiring Boero over the summer, but have reportedly never stopped recruiting him, something that, according to Wiltfong, “may pay off in the future.”

Boero has already visited Athens this fall.

“I feel like Florida really showed love, they showed my whole side,” Buero said of Florida. “Not just athletics, but also academics. Florida is ranked fifth in public schools, while Georgia is 16, and I feel like when I went to Florida, they literally sat there and helped me figure out what I wanted to do as far as engineering.”… But “For Georgia, it was like, ‘Okay, if you want to study mechanical engineering, this is what we have for you,’ but Florida really sat down with me and walked me through the interns and all the programs I could go into to get my degree.”

Florida’s 2024 recruiting class maintains its status as one of the best in the country despite Boireau coming out of the closet.

The Gators hold commitments from a pair of 247Sports five-star prospects, defensive lineman JaMonta Waller and defensive back Xavier Vilsimi. Midfielder DJ Lagway also earned five-star status in his class, according to industry-created composite ratings.

“Florida is rebuilding their program from the ground up and it shows,” said Fletcher Westphal, a four-star offensive tackle. “The entire staff kept talking about Coach Napier being a great leader and accepting his vision to return the Gators to one of the best programs in the SEC.”
