Enwere Likes What He Sees In TCU

Ft. Bend Austin running back Vic Enwere visited TCU last weekend and hopes to receive an offer from the Frogs.

Ft. Bend Austin running back Vic Enwere had something to prove last Sunday when he competed in the Nike Football Training Camp in Allen. The 6-foot-1, 210-pounder wanted it known that he is one of the premier backs in the Lone Star State for the 2014 class.

After Sunday's performance, he's well on his way to be one of the top names at his position.

Enwere competed alongside some of the top running back prospects from both the 2014 and 2015 classes at the NFTC and left regarded by many as one of the top player in attendance.

"I think I did a lot of good out there, I did a lot of stuff I haven't done before," Enwere said. "I showed a lot of guys that I have versatility and that I can get out of the backfield and run routes. I felt that I did really good."

One day before his impressive performance at the NFTC, Enwere visited TCU to watch the Frogs' last practice of the spring. Afterwards, he toured the facilities and like many other recruits who visit, the big back walked away impressed with what he saw.

"I like the coaches and I like the surrounding area. Everything I saw up there looked good and clean, I thought the visit was really good," he said. "It's a good place."

Although he didn't receive an offer while on his visit, Enwere says he knows where he stands with the coaching staff.

"We spoke on it a little bit, they let me know they're going to come down in the spring," he said. "They said they're a slow offer kind of team and that's just how they do things. They want to go through everything; check out character, check out grades and make sure everything is good on the forefront. That's just how they do it as a staff; I'll be waiting on them to come down in the spring."

Enwere currently has offers from Houston, Colorado, Michigan State, Rice, SMU, Texas State, Utah, Wake Forest and North Texas. If TCU offers, the Frogs would definitely be in the mix with his top schools according to Enwere.

"If they did offer simply because of the proximity and they're a great program and good foundation, if they did they would be up there on the top section of my offers," he said of TCU.

One factor Enwere will look at when choosing where he fits best is a team's depth chart and how they utilize their running backs.

"I look at it, I don't look too much into it because I'm not scared of competition, but I look at it and see who they're getting and how they treat their running backs," Enwere said. "Are they a running back by committee or do they have featured running backs? I look at that in my process also."

Enwere rushed for 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2012.
