Beyond the Commitment: Well-Rounded Back

Beyond the Commitment: Well-Rounded Back

Many college football commits try and bring others with them to their chosen institution. In Vic Enwere's case, he's already started recruiting for the Golden Bears track and field program. Enwere also talks about his world travels, frog legs and more in this exclusive in-depth interview.

Oftentimes, top football recruits will endeavor to bring along other players to their chosen colleges after they commit. For California's latest pledge – running back Vic Enwere -- there's another athlete he wants to bring along, but she doesn't play football.

"My girlfriend, she's an athlete too, and she may come out to California, but we don't know, yet. She's the No. 1 triple-jumper in the nation, so she has options, also," Enwere says of his favorite lady, Bria Druilhet, who posted a 40'11.75" best in the triple jump on April 29 in the Texas Region 3-5A meet, taking home the top mark this spring. In fact, Druilhet posted four triple jumps of over 40 feet this season, making her one of the more coveted leapers in 2014 class.

"She has offers a lot of places," Enwere says.. I can't even name them, right now, but I'm trying to get her on board to Cal."

Enwere, for his part, also participates in track and a little bit of recreational basketball, but he's also a sensitive soul, writing poetry and drawing in his spare time.

"It's more the art of words, and sometimes I'll make pictures out of them; it just depends on how I'm feeling at the time," says Enwere.

Enwere is quite well-rounded and well-traveled for a young man his age, volunteering in the community and having been to Europe several times with his family. The best place he's visited? Frankfurt, Germany. But, the best foreign cuisine he's thrown down has a little more legs than your average frankfurter.

"The fried frog legs have to be the best," says Enwere, who gobbled down a few Kermits when he and his family traveled to France. "It tastes a lot like chicken, so it didn't take a lot to get me to try it."

When he's home, though, it's either Burger King or Five Guys when he's craving a burger, and, whenever he gets as far as Dallas, he seeks out In-N-Out, which should be a welcome sight when he arrives in Berkeley, but not nearly as welcome as the football field. What's he most excited about when he finally gets to Cal?

"Great college football," he says, plain and simple.

Before he gets to Berkeley, though, he has a few other items to check off his high school bucket list.

"I want to win a state championship. Everyone wants that. I want to rush for over 2.000 yards and I want to help carry my team," says Enwere. "Off the field, I want to continue to be a better leader in my community and impact it multiple ways, not just on the football field."

Enwere volunteers with his church, and takes part in Camp Spider, which is a camp for young football players to get instruction from local NFL players and high school stalwarts.

With his 3.6 GPA, Enwere is looking into majoring either in his father's chosen field – engineering – or sports medicine.

"Physical therapy, for one, because my sister does it, and I've been around it, as a football player," says Enwere. "I feel like if I'm not playing, I want to stay around the game and help athletes out. The best opportunity to do it would be through physical therapy and sports medicine."
