According to NFHS a kicking violation is an "intentional strike" at the ball. This seems in no way to be an intentional strike. It's a bit hard to call a kick when he doesn't kick it at all. He's just trying to regain possession.

Nit picky, I know, but it's always these weird situations that cause me to question.
If he intentionally moves his leg into the ball, it is a kicking violation. He has intentionally striken the ball with his leg. As JRut said, a player can not use his leg to control the ball.
