I caught up with Enos to ask him about his recruiting.

BYU Insider: Why did you choose BYU?

Enos:  Because I knew that this is the environment I wanted to be in and that would help me to be successful both on the field and in my academic pursuits. My visit really had a role to play with this realization.

BYU Insider: What other schools were showing you love in the recruiting process?

Enos:  I had a PWO to Utah as well as D3 offers from Linfield, Pacific, Pacific Lutheran, and the University of Puget Sound.

BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?

Enos: Favorite movie would have to be 50 First Dates. My favorite books are the Percy Jackson series because they never stop making me want to read more. Music would have to be whatever is playing on the radio. Cereal is definitely Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

BYU Insider: Tell me about one of your accomplishment in sports.

Enos:  Making this decision to play for BYU. It feels good to be able to let all the hard work of not only myself, but everyone that has pushed me to this point shine. It’s a humbling opportunity that I am so thankful for and will make the most of.

BYU Insider: What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

Enos:  My dad always tells me that whenever I make a mistake, I need to throw it away mentally and move on because if I dwell on it, I won’t be able to perform to the best of my abilities. I use this advice for everything and it has never failed to help me do the best I can in everything that I do.
