For the past couple of weeks, the Missouri coaching staff has been out on the recruiting trail, including some familiar territory down in the state of Texas, where they have offered a speedy running back for 2014 who likes the SEC.

For the past couple of weeks, the Missouri coaching staff has been out on the recruiting trail. Last week, Missouri checked in on 2014 TB prospect Vic Enwere 6’1” 213 Sugar Land (TX) Stephen F. Austin. ShowMeMizzou.com spoke to Enwere, and he talked about his recruitment.

“Missouri has offered me a scholarship,” said Enwere. “The defensive line coach, Craig Kuligowski, was here last week. We’re in spring football.”

“It was exciting to receive an SEC offer,” said Enwere, talking about his Missouri offer. “It’s a chance to play on a national stage, and play against the top competition…………………………………….. Missouri is a very, very storied program. They’ve been very, very good. They just need a couple of pieces, and I feel like I could come in and be one of those pieces. It’s a good place.”

Enwere also reports offers from Colorado, Houston, Illinois, Iowa State, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Rice, SMU, Texas State, North Texas, Utah State, Wake Forest, and Wisconsin, in addition to Missouri.

He said that he is expecting to receive offers from Duke, Vanderbilt, and others.

Enwere said that he is good friends with 2013 Missouri signee, J’Mon Moore.

Enwere reports a 3.97 second 5-10-5 shuttle, to go along with a 4.45 second 40-yard dash time, and a 41.6” vertical. He no longer plays basketball, but he is a sprinter on his school’s track team, where he has posted a 10.8-second 100 meters, and a 10.4 split in the 4x100.

“I want to go to a school where I can make an early impact,” said Enwere. “By the time I get to college, I feel like I will be prepared to play.”

But, Enwere wants to be on a team with other good backs.

“As a running back, you need the other running backs,” explained Enwere. “It’s hard to take all 50 carries a game. You need other running backs. I’m looking to be a part of the line-up, and to help the team win games.”

Enwere would like to visit Missouri, but he wasn’t sure when he would visit.

“Once my spring ball is over, I’ll have to plan how my summer’s going to go,” explained Enwere.
