Michigan Wolverine Recruiting: Kiante Enis 2016 Commit Profile

GBMWolverine Readers: Here is a overview of University of Michigan recent verbal commitment Kiante Enis.

On the heels of the commitment from mammoth Michael Onwenu, Michigan received a commitment from a “satellite camp” held at Indiana. He may best be described as a four-star athlete and a three star football player. This is a little strange since Kiante Enis stats are stellar.

Looking at film, one can see competition not nearly as athletic as Kiante. He simply was 10 yards beyond the opposition barely after the play developed. Many times he made one cut or simply outran the defense into the secondary. After that, the result is a done deal. Kiante rushed for over 3100 yards and is still ranked a three-star. He ran an electronic 10.5, 100-meter race.

This is not far off of recent highly touted Michigan players in high school. Kiante is a multi-sport athlete, but this commitment signals that he believes football is the core of his future high school success. So, the bottom line is that the raw material aspect is more than sufficient.

Kiante is around 6 foot one and 190 pounds. As such he could play running back, slot, or defensive back. There are unanswered questions due to his competition level, but even so, Kiante seems to flow well in space. The first thing Coach and Doc noticed is how amazingly stiff Kiante runs. He runs upright and does not seem to change levels. But again, there is the chance of versatility and increased physical traits in a premium preparation program. Somewhat raw can be transformed into polished with work and strong development.

Stars do matter, but are not absolute in predicting success within a football program. So, with that in mind the GBMWolverine Staff has cleverly come up with a new system of ranking. We are using footballs instead of stars, how can one argue against a system that clever? Below are the interpretations of football power predicted way too boldly long before it matters. In other words, we will give informed opinion with the crystal ball and let the players determine what will happen through years of hard work.

Criteria: Raw talent, athleticism, position of need, intangibles.

GBMWolverine Rankings:

10 footballs: Instant impact player.
9 footballs: Three or four-year starter at a high level.
8 footballs: A starter with all league potential.
7 footballs: A meaningful starter at some time during a career.
6 footballs: A spot starter or special teams player.
5 footballs: Not in the two deep after a two years.
4 footballs: Never made it.
1-3 footballs: See the above.

We have him at 6 1/2 – 7 footballs.

Side Note:

Remember just as we did during the season with grading positions or groups we are very tough graders and expect a lot out of those positions or players so this is no different here.

  • Overview:

    Kiante is a 3-sport high school star who plays in a weak conference. This observation does eliminate his talent, it only highlights his abilities. He runs very fast, a 10.5 100 meters. Kiante averaged 23 points per game in basketball. Kiante rushed for over 3000 yards. He could play a number of positions on either side of the ball and has very good bloodlines, being the nephew of former PSU star Curtis Enis.


    An excellent combination of size, speed, and athletic ability. Film shows excellent burst and acceleration. Shows good hands out of backfield and has a nice patience to his running style. Runs with very good power also.

    Concerns/Needs Work:

    Kiante is surprisingly stiff for such an excellent athlete. He runs very upright and takes a lot of hits. He also needs to learn to change levels and make more precise cuts.

    Red-shirt or play his Freshman Year?

    GBMWolverine believes he will likely red-shirt his first year.

    Kiante Enis reminds the GBMWolverine Staff of — Current Michigan Football Player — Drake Johnson — who plays running back.

    Video Highlights:

    2016 Michigan Football Class:

    Michigan currently has nine recruits at this time with Erik Swenson (OL), Dele Harding (LB), Brandon Peters (QB), David Reese (FB/LB), Kingston Davis (FB), Matt Falcon (RB), Michael Onwenu (OL), Kiante Enis (RB/Slot/ST’s), and Chris Evans (Slot, RB, WR, CB, or ST’s).

    Final Thoughts:

    Players with Enis’ combination of size, speed, and athletic ability are always worth a shot.

    We welcome Kiante Enis to Michigan and hope he has a successful career on and off the football field as a student-athlete at the University of Michigan. Go Blue!
