Enunwa played his high school football at the same institution that produced current Husker lineman Eric Martin. The two talked fairly often during Enunwa's recruiting process. Defensive end Ronald Powell, a highly-touted recruit who signed with Florida, also attended Rancho Verde with Enunwa.
“He's a hard guy to tackle because he's big and strong. He's not going to dance a whole lot. But he'll make big catches in traffic and he'll compete for the ball.” — Rancho Verde coach Pete Duffy.
He could be rightfully classified as a late bloomer. Enunwa hardly contributed as a junior, catching no more than 10 passes, Duffy said. But during the offseason, he corrected some mechanics, added some weight and gained some much-needed confidence. As a senior, Enunwa was a top target for Rancho Verde's pass-happy spread offense, helping the Mustangs to an 11-1 record. Enunwa made his non-binding commitment to Nebraska after the Huskers held off Oklahoma for a 10-3 win on Nov. 7. He also had a scholarship offer from Washington State.
This class lacks a bulk of potential playmakers on the offensive side, but Enunwa's size and upside are intriguing. NU is clearly looking for a receiver that won't get bumped at the line of scrimmage and who can also go across the middle. On paper, Enunwa could be that type of player. Expect Enunwa, like most young receivers, to spend his first season picking up the system as a redshirt.
