Sugar Land (Tex.) Stephen F. Austin running back Vic Enwere already has scholarship offers from Colorado, Houston, Illinois, Iowa State, Michigan, Michigan State, Rice, SMU, Utah and Wisconsin -- among others -- but on Tuesday, he hosted yet another suitor, represented by California running backs coach Pierre Ingram and special teams coordinator/inside receivers coach Mark Tommerdahl.
"I talked to both of them -- coach Ingram and Tommerdahl," Enwere said. "They're really excited about me. I'm starting to build my relationship with them. It's still really early on. Because of the coaching staff change, that's why it took them a while to come see me. They like everything. They just wanted to come down and see me before they offer."
While Enwere didn't know much about the Bears before they came calling, he did know about the offense that this staff ran back at Louisiana Tech.
"I've looked at it a lot, and I really like the offense that they run," Enwere said. "They like to give their running backs the ball, so that's good."
Enwere has a little bit of Joe Mixon in him, as far as a combination of size and speed, at 6-foot-1, 213 pounds with a 4.46 40 time, which is why the Bears are so interested.
"They see me as an Arian Foster-style running back: Big, has the agility of a smaller back, able to make those hard cuts, able to read," Enwere said. "They want a smart running back who's not afraid to be physical, and they said that I'm an all-around back who they'd want to do a lot of different things."
The three-star prospect is ranked as the No, 83 running back in the 2014 class, but last season he ran for over 1,500 yards with 17 touchdowns, and also recorded 140 receiving yards.
Enwere has a 3.6 GPA and got a 1740 on the SAT, and said that he "definitely" wants to come out and check out Berkeley, but that would most likely happen after the Bears offer.
