3. He Hasn’t Played for IU Yet This Season as He Was Said to Be Recovering From a Concussion

Days before his arrest, IU Coach Kevin Wilson said that Enis, who hadn’t featured yet this season, was recovering from a concussion, according to the Indianapolis Star’s Zach Osterman. The team (2-0) plays Wake Forest in a home game this weekend.


4. A Multi-Sport Star in High School, Enis Originally Committed to Michigan But Later Decided to Stay Closer to Home

Enis was a three-star recruit, rushing for 2,393 yards and scoring 35 touchdowns at Winchester Community High School in Indiana. Initially, he verbally committed to Michigan but later reverted to signing with the Hoosiers. The Muncie Star Press reports that Enis had a full athletic scholarship to Indiana University. That piece adds that Enis was voted the state’s best running back and finished fifth in the Indy Star’s Mr. Football award.

His uncle is former Penn State star and NFL player Curtis Enis.

According to the Star Press, in the Spring of 2016, Enis finished fourth in the all-state 100-meter dash.

  1. These men have a chance of going tto prison for 16 years while Trump gets off scott free, after multiple counts of rape on underage girls!!!

    • Sure Mary, if the allegations are true it would come to light and his nomination would be revoked, don’t hold your breath though. The only one who gets away with rape, murder and drug running is Billy Boy Clinton who has dirt on every judge on the bench.

  2. Congratulations to whomever keeps catching these assholes like touchdowns & another one. I’m proud you guys deserve a raise. Keep up the great job.
