While his recruitment got off to a slow start, the recruiting trail has heated up since the start of the 2019 calendar year for Detroit (MI) Cass Tech offensive tackle Terrence Enos.

Spartan Nation recently spoke with Enos about his rise in the recruiting ranks and the 6-foot-5, 317-pound 3-star lineman admitted that it’s been exciting to have gone from a sophomore season which started with limited interest to now with several major Division 1 programs lining up to express interest and even extend offers to him.

“Just the attention that I’m getting from the bigger schools now,” he said. “Just a few months ago it was my 10th grade year and I wasn’t really getting looked at, then one offer changed that and in the span of a few months it’s blown up.”

Enos currently holds six offers, including offers from Kentucky, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Syracuse, West Virginia and LSU, who became Enos’ first offer back in January.

“It was really the first one, so my recruitment blew up,” Enos said of the LSU offer. “I was grateful for it, I really didn’t have any words for it, it was just a great moment for me. I talked to them a few times and I might try to get down there this summer.”

With the sudden surge in his recruitment, Enos told Spartan Nation that he’s enjoying the process and is simply relaxing considering his contact with coaches is limited until September because he’s still a sophomore.

“Right now I can’t really communicate with schools because I’m still an underclassmen technically until September,” he said. “That’s when things really pick up and I can talk to coaches on a day-to-day basis.”

While Michigan State hasn’t extended an offer to Enos as of yet, a potential offer from the Spartans would be a big deal for the standout offensive lineman with one of the main reasons being he’d have the opportunity to stay close to home and to his family.

“That would mean a lot, that would mean I could potentially stay home and family could be able to come see me on game day,” he said. “It would mean a lot.”

Enos noted that he would like to make it up to East Lansing for a camp this summer, but wasn’t sure if his schedule would allow it as he understandably has a busy schedule with visits lined up before the start of his junior season.

With two years of high school football left, Enos said that while he believes pass blocking is a strength for him, he still sees room for improvement in terms of his strength and in his run blocking.

“I feel like pass sets, that’s my best attribute for me because I can get out of my stance quick,” he said. “I think I need to get in the weight room and get stronger and work on my run game a little bit, but it’s coming together.”
