Mizzou Offers Texas RB Eno Benjamin

Four-star Texas running back Eno Benjamin added an offer from a Southeastern Conference program on Friday.

Wylie (TX) East High School running back Eno Benjamin has been putting up big numbers on the field for the past two seasons. Now the electric four-star running back gaining steam in recruiting.  

Benjamin received a scholarship offer from the Missouri Tigers on Friday. 


Benjamin has a wide range of offers, including from Big Ten schools like Michigan and Iowa, and the offer from Mizzou is his second from a Southeastern Conference school after Vanderbilt had previously extended an offer. The offer from the Tigers was his 21st and he will continue to rack them up over the next 12 months before Signing Day.


"Benjamin is a highly instinctive, high-volume running back who possesses big-play ability as well as workhorse production," Scout.com recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks wrote in his scouting report. "Possesses exceptional feet with outstanding balance and lateral ability. Dangerous start-and-stop runner who maximizes yardage at second level with cutback ability. Good at avoiding direct blows. Lacks ideal size but gains ample yardage after contact. Not a top-end burner, but plenty fast with good initial acceleration."
