Recruiting is all about building solid relationships and a trust factor between the coaches and the prospect.
It appears that Coach Mike MacIntyre and his coaching staff gets that concept, as they reach out recruiting several states including Texas.
One Texas running back Vic Enwere is holding 12 to 13 offers, but stresses the relationship he has built with Colorado assistant coach Troy Walters as being one of the reasons he plans on making a trip to Boulder later this summer.
“I definitely have interest in Colorado,” Enwere told BuffPlayBook.com in a recent interview. “Coach Walters and I have built a great relationship, he has taught me so much already and he isn’t even my coach yet.”
Enwere, a 6-foot-1, 213-pound running back with 4.45 speed, rushed for 1,509 yards as a junior and accounted for 17 touchdowns for his Stephen F Austin High School team
The talented runner is also building a relationship with new Buffs Head Football Coach McIntyre.
“I have spoken to him,” Enwere said. “He told me how highly interested they are in me, he talked about the possibility of early playing time at Colorado.”
Enwere earned MVP honors in his district and was first team on the Class 5A All State team.
According to Enwere, he is looking for a great education, a good athletic platform and a school that is in a nice area.
“I haven’t been to Colorado yet, I plan on making a trip there this summer,” Enwere said. “Everyone tells me how beautiful it is there. I’m really impressed with what the new coaching staff did at San Jose State, turning around that program.”
Spring football begins for Enwere on Wednesday, several schools have recently visited his school.
“Tulsa came down recently and liked my film,” Enwere said. “They are one of the schools that has recently showed a lot of interest in me.”
Another thing that has stood out to Enwere about the Colorado coaching staff is their focus and drive.
“You can tell that they are really hungry to change the program,” Enwere said. “They want to turn Colorado into a winner and they want me to be a part of that.”
