Signee 101: Get to know 3-star South Carolina DE Kingsley Enagbare

Before committing to South Carolina in late July and signing Wednesday, 3-star defensive end Kingsley Enagbare was widely believed to be headed to one of two in-state progams.

Georgia and Georgia Tech were the presumed front-runners for Enagbare, a 6-foot-4, 257-pound prospect out of Hapeville Charter in Atlanta.

“He’s the ‘3’ technique guy,” Hapeville coach Winston Gordon said, during an interview with Jeff Sentell. “That [former Alabama standout] Jonathan Allen-type that everybody is looking for in that 3-4 defense.”

Enagbare’s coach went on to talk about his versatility.

“He can compete at defensive end and the ‘3’ technique in the 4-3. There’s no doubt he can be a ‘3’ at the next level,” Gordon said. “He’ll be that guy who is the big defensive end in a 3-4 set and the ‘3’ in the 4-man front.

“His best football is yet to come. He’s a young player and he’s passionate about the game, and he’s going to give you his 110 percent every time.”

Only one 3-star is ranked higher in the 247Sports composite than Enagbare, who’s listed at No. 368 overall.

Profiling at South Carolina

Three players from the Gamecocks’ rotation up front will be gone after the Outback Bowl. Taylor Stallworth, a tackle, is the only regular starter. Backup end Dante Sawyer and reserve tackle Ulric Jones are also set to exhaust their eligibility on Jan. 1.

Enagbare profiles to be an outside/inside type of guy, similarly to Sawyer, who’s among the top players in the country in forced fumbles (5).

Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp got an up-close, in-person look at Enagbare when he visited for camp earlier this summer.
