BIG Ten School Is Latest Offer For Enyenihi

One of the top returning JUCO ball-carriers in Northern California this year is Sac City RB Henry Enyenihi (6-1 ,220). He's a big, powerful tailback with enough burst to hit the home run and he currently holds three offers and more could be on the way...

"The offers I have right now are from Illinois, I just got that one this past week, UTSA Texas-San Antonio and Sacramento State," Enyenihi told JCFootball.com recently. "I'd been talking to (Illinois) for a couple of months and after they got my spring transcripts they decided to offer me and said they see me as a great fit for their system and what they want to do in the running game."

In addition to his three offers, Enyenihi has also been hearing from the likes of California, Colorado State and Kansas State.

"I'd like to take an official or two during the summer, but I need to get it scheduled soon," Enyenihi said. "I'm trying to figure out a date that will work with Illinois. I'm really interested in them and their program."

As a redshirt freshman for Sac City this past season, Enyenihi managed to rush for 645 yards and two scores which was made all the more impressive when you consider that he was the only real offensive threat on the field for his team.

"I'd probably say I'm a power-runner with speed," Enyenihi said. "I'm also pretty elusive and I can make guys miss in open space.

"The big thing I've been working on since the end of the season has been my pass-blocking and I've also been working on reading things a little better. I want to have better vision and see the holes before they open and a lot of that has to do with my film study and understanding what the defense is doing."

As a prep in Georgia, Enyenihi enjoyed success both on the football field and in the classroom. He wasn't recruiting by FBS or FCS programs, so he decided to sign with Tusculum, a D-2 school, but he decided to leave and give himself a shot at playing a larger school.

After looking around, even enrolling at a school that eventually discontinued their football program, he decided to head west and said he's glad for the change of scenery and the opportunities his decisions have led to.

"It's been pretty crazy, the path I've had to take, but it looks like it's going to pay off. I'm really excited," Enyenihi noted.

The talented runner is close to getting his two-year degree, he'll finish up his academic work in December, and he will have two years to play two following the 2014 football season.
