In today’s ever-changing and developing world of football, coaches are now taking their best athletes and skill players and putting them on defense to keep up with the opening of spread offenses. Likewise, offenses are trying to find bigger and taller athletes to play receiver to nullify the athletes on defense. No receiver fits the profile better than Atlantic High School wide receiver Adly Enoicy.
Enoicy stands 6-foot-5, weighs around 205-pounds, and has room to grow and become a quicker athlete. Most of the best receivers in the NFL today are 6-foot-4 or taller (Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Andre Johnson, etc.). They dominate with their size and make it much easier for a quarterback to find an open receiver. Enoicy played in a run-first offense like most high school teams, so his numbers don’t necessarily show his talent (just 51 catches, 1011 yards and 13 touchdowns the last two seasons). But with three college recruits gone to graduation, the Atlantic Eagles will likely look to feature their best player and utilize his skills to the playoffs. The Eagles went 8-3 last season and lost in the first round of the playoffs, so there’s no doubt they will look to change up their offense to fit the talent on the roster now.
Enoicy is currently being heavily recruited by schools in the south, such as Florida State, Miami (FL), South Carolina, and Virginia Tech. Traditional elite schools Alabama, Florida, and USC have yet to offer him a scholarship, but if he puts up numbers to go with his frame, he will be sure to find dozens of other offers on the table. It will be interesting to see how big of an impact Enoicy is making in a couple of years.
