UNC 'Up there' for Ga. D-lineman Kingsley Enagbare

After visiting in February, Kingsley Enagbare plans to return to Chapel Hill this summer.

BUFORD, Ga. --- Kingsley Enagbare's February visit to North Carolina yielded a scholarship offer for the 6-foot-4, 257-pound defensive lineman.

"I met with Coach [Deke] Adams and he said he liked me," Enagbare said. "And he ended up giving me the offer.

"It's a good offer. I like [UNC] a lot."

Enagbare, who transferred to College Park (Ga.) Hapeville Charter Academy from Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge this offseason, has also made recent visits to Auburn, East Carolina, NC State, South Carolina, and Tennessee

"I've liked all of them," Enagbare said. "I'm still keeping my options open. Everything is equal."

However, Enagbare admitted UNC is "up there."

"I just liked the environment and everything they have to offer," Enagbare said.

In total, 18 schools have offered Enagbare. In addition to UNC, his offer list features Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

At the very least, by the end of the summer Enagbare plans to name a group of finalists -- if not make a verbal commitment.

Shortly before Enagbare's UNC visit, Deke Adams once again became the Tar Heels' defensive line coach. Besides offering him a scholarship, Adams informed Enagbare that he projects to play defensive tackle within the Heels' defense.

As a junior rotating up and down Peachtree Ridge's D-line, Enagbare was a 6-AAAAAAA First Team All-Region performer. He finished the season 45 tackles and three sacks.

Enagbare's UNC visit included a campus tour, which included a complete look at the football facilities, plus a swing through its basketball hall-of-fame and a look at its dorm rooms.

"It was nice," Enagbare said. "It was up-to-date and modern. I liked everything I saw."

Enagbare plans to return to UNC this summer. He also has his eye on summer trips to Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.
