Going into National Signing Day, Solomon Enis is one of the best players that has not yet signed with a program. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound wide receiver will announce which program he will sign with on Wednesday.
Here are five things to know about Enis.
1. Solomon Enis is a 4-star prospect
From Phoenix, Enis is rated as a 4-star recruit for the 2018 class.
Nationally, Enis — out of North Canyon High School — is ranked as the No. 226 overall player in his class, according to 247Sports composite rankings. Among all wide receivers in the class, he is ranked as the No. 40 wideout.
2. 247Sports ranks Solomon Enis the No. 2 prospect from Arizona
While he is ranked in the middle of the pact when it comes to 247Sports’ national rankings, Enis is right at the top among fellow Arizona prospects.
247Sports ranks Enis as the No. 2 overall prospect out of Arizona, which has 60 total prospects in this year’s class. The only player ahead of him in the state is 4-star quarterback Tyler Shough, who is signed with Oregon.
3. Solomon Enis is the son of former Penn State running back Curtis Enis
If you thought you had heard his last name in college football before, you were right. Solomon is the son of former Penn State running back Curtis Enis.
Curtis spent three seasons with the Nittany Lions, where he rushed for 3,256 yards and 36 touchdowns on 565 carries in 35 total games from 1995-97. The 1997 consensus All-American also made 2 touchdown catches with Penn State in his collegiate career.

While Solomon may not have fully followed his father’s footsteps by becoming a running back, he has surely proven himself to not only be a great wide receiver, but an incredible athlete that can make an impact of a football field.
4. Solomon Enis will choose between four schools on Wednesday
Make no mistake about it, there were plenty of teams that were interested in the young receiver.
According to 247Sports, there were 18 total teams interested in Enis, with 17 of them extending an offer. However, Enis eliminated schools like Michigan State, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Nebraska and Oregon and has narrowed his options down to four teams.
Those four teams are Penn State, Utah, USC and Arizona State. Enis will make his decision inside of his high school’s gymnasium on Wednesday around 11 a.m. MST/1 p.m. ET.
While Enis certainly has his options, it is widely believed that he will choose to sign with Penn State and become a Nittany Lion like his father. 247Sports gives it a 75 percent chance that Enis will sign with Penn State, and only a 12 percent chance for both Arizona State and Utah.
During his official visit, Enis shared a couple posts on Instagram of him sporting Penn State gear.
5. Solomon Enis prefers to work out with offensive and defensive lineman instead of his fellow receivers
According to a recent article by Land of 10’s Sean Keeler, Enis would rather lift weights with offensive or defensive lineman instead of wide receivers.
Why? Because it is better competition for Enis, according to the aforementioned article.
Enis’s high school coach and former Canadian Football League defensive back Airabin Justin was featured in the article, and he gave his former wideout rave reviews.
“It’s weird,” Justin said in the article. “Because on offense, he’s going to try to punish you like he was on defense.”
“He’s very explosive off the line, a very explosive kid,” Justin added. “He just does a lot of things, sometimes, that you wouldn’t expect someone of his [body] type to do. Everyone expects someone of his size to go up and get the ball.
“He’s so much more physically gifted than the guys he’s played against. Once he gets to college he’s going to get bigger and stronger.”
