Enewally Talks Washington Visit

Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr defensive back Patrick Enewally is one of the fastest rising defensive backs in the West over the last few months. The rangy athlete took an official visit to Washington over the weekend and said it was his best visit thus far...

Patrick Enewally is one of the most versatile defensive backs in the West with the ability to play corner or safety in college. He has very good size, a great frame but can run and has solid cover skills. Enewally has already visited Boise State and the trip to Washington was his second visit of the year.

"I loved it there, it was my favorite visit so far," Enewally said. "I think the thing that stood out the most was the camaraderie and just how close everyone is. It really felt like a big family there and I loved that. I knew a lot of the players already so that definitely helped me feel comfortable in a new environment.

"Dwayne Washington, who I played with at Gahr was my host and he loves it there. I know Troy Williams really well and we hung out a lot. Then I know a lot of other guys on the team like Jaydon Mickens and Sean Parker. It's a great group of guys and I know I would fit in really well there."

The city of Seattle and watching the team practice were also highlights for Enewally.

"Seattle is a great place, especially downtown," Enewally said. "There's a lot to do and it's really nice. The people are great, very friendly and I had a good time. The weather was cold but I actually kind of liked it. I can definitely get used to that and that's not going to be an issue for me at all.

"The practice was a lot of fun to watch as well. The tempo was fast and real upbeat. They get after it and I loved the energy of the players and the coaches. I spent a lot of time with Coach Heyward, who's recruiting me but also talked a lot with Coach Wilcox, Lupoi and Nansen and talked with Sark quite a bit as well."

Enewally said the coaches never pushed for a commitment but did make sure he knew how much he was wanted there.

"There was no pressure but they told me I'm their guy and they want their for sure," Enewally said. "They know I have a few other schools on my list and I'm not ready to do anything just yet. I do like Washington a lot though and they have been recruiting me the hardest by far.

"Coach Heyward has come in for two home visits and Coach Wilcox came in for one. Boise State came in once and UCLA hasn't come at all although Coach Martin comes to my school a lot and we talk all the time. This weekend is the Cal-State Bowl game in Fresno (Dec. 22) and there's a chance I could commit there. I'm thinking about it, but even if I do, I still plan to take my last official visit to UCLA (Jan. 18). I've always liked UCLA a lot and definitely want to do that visit."
