Enwere Hopes To Visit TCU

Sugar Land (TX) Austin runningback Vic Enwere will be in the DFW area this weekend for the Nike Football Training Camp on Sunday. He hopes to make it to TCU for the Frogs' last spring scrimmage on Saturday.

Sugar Land (TX) Austin runningback Vic Enwere is quickly becoming one of the most heavily recruited runningbacks from the Lone Star state in the 2014 class.

The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder with 4.5 rushed for 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2012. He's already racked up offers from SMU, Colorado, Houston, Rice, Texas State, Utah, Michigan State and Wake Forest and more could be right around the corner according to Enwere.

"I'm getting very strong interest from Vanderbilt, Minnesota and Arkansas State right now," he said. "Those three could be very close to offering."

Another school showing interest is TCU and Enwere hopes to make it to the Frogs' last practice of the spring while he's in town for the Nike Football Training Camp.

"They've been showing me some pretty good interest, I'm trying to get up there," Enwere said. "I'm coming up to Dallas this weekend and I'm trying to make my way over to Ft. Worth. They've let me know that they like my abilities so it's been pretty good interest. If I can't get down there I'll try to make it soon, but it's a fair chance that I make it over there."

Enwere is being recruited by TCU offensive line coach Eddie Williamson and the big back says he's already building a good relationship with the coach.

"He's a good guy and he really hasn't pushed me too much throughout the recruiting process," he said. "He's a good guy to speak with."

While several schools appear on the verge of offering, Enwere says the prospects of an offer from TCU haven't come up in his discussions with Williamson.

"We haven't discussed it too much but I'm guessing I'm one of the guys they like," he said. "He'll probably inform me what their position is on me but we really haven't spoken about it too much. He's just let the recruiting process play along. When I know, I'll know."

Enwere has a good familiarity with TCU thanks in large part to a former Frogs great; Jerry Hughes. The former All-American defensive end is a Stephen F. Austin alum and Enwere has had a chance to talk to Hughes about the Frogs' program.

"Jerry Hughes came out of my school and he's talked very highly of them," Enwere said. "He let me know a lot and I've a lot of their games so I know a lot about what their about. They have a rich history; I'm familiar with the program."

Two teams currently stand out to Enwere at the moment simply because they were the first to notice his talents. However, he's not close to making a decision just yet and looks forward to building relationships with more coaching staffs throughout the process.

"I've gone up to visit SMU and they were my first offer so they're ahead of everyone else," he said. "I've been there and I know them very well. Colorado also jumped out early too. They're sticking out just a little bit, because of when they offered I've had more time to build a relationship with them."
