Enis Talks Big Night, Future at Michigan

Michigan 2016 athlete commit Kiante Enis discusses his season opening performance, his future plans with Michigan and more.

WINCHESTER, Ind. – Kiante Enis started his senior season on high note.

The Michigan commit ran for 341 yards on 23 carries with four touchdowns, leading Winchester (Ind.) to 42-7 win over South Adams (Ind.) on Friday night. He also scored his first touchdown of his senior season with interception for a score early in the first-half, tying a school record for interceptions.

“My first score was defensively, I wasn’t expecting that,” Enis said. “But I started off slow running the ball. After the first quarter everything started getting a little more smooth. (I was) getting used to more of what they were doing defensively. And I kind of just played off of that.”

Rated a three-star athlete, Enis plays both running back and safety for Winchester. However, as of right now, he says Michigan plans on starting him off at half back once he get on campus in 2016.

“I know first of all I am coming in as a running back,” Enis said. “They are going to play me in the backfield coming in. There has been talks of going out to wide receiver, going out deep. There has also been talks of me playing in the secondary at safety. I’m a two-way player, so I’m confortable playing either way. Just looking forward to getting up (there) to do anything I can to help the team win.”

Either way, Enis says he still manages to take time and reflect on his commitment to Michigan he made back in early June.

“It’s definitely big,” Enis said on his commitment to Michigan. “There is days where it doesn’t really play a big part. But there is other days where I am like ‘wow, I’m going to be a Michigan Wolverine.’ I’m just getting really excited.”

Jordan Impact

Michael Jordan announced on Twitter last week that Michigan will be his first football program to represent the Jordan Brand on the field in 2016.

Enis took kindly to the announcement.

“I saw that tweet, and the first thing I did was I quoted it, I retweeted it, I favorited it, I showed all my friends, I did everything with that tweet,” Enis said. “I have actually talked to all the recruits in my class, and everybody is super excited about it. We really can’t wait to wear that Jumpman symbol on our uniforms.”

How much of a game changer is Michigan’s move to Nike, specifically Jordan’s Jumpman brand?

“It’s huge,” Enis said. “It’ definitely a big game changer. I feel like it’s going to gran the attention of a bunch of huge recruits. Michigan is the first to be able to do that. That’s really going to play a big part in recruitment.”

Enis says he take his official visit for Michigan’s regular season final against Ohio State.
