Pitt’s big recruiting weekend continued with the addition of an offensive lineman from Michigan.
Class of 2021 three-star linemen Terrence Enos (6-foot-5, 315 pounds) from Cass Tech High School in Detroit, Michigan verbally committed to Pitt and became their 11th commitment in their Class of 2021.
Enos is a big addition for Pitt since he’s their first scholarship commitment from Michigan since 2014 (Avonte Maddox) and won a recruiting battle over teams like Arkansas, Iowa State, Kentucky, LSU, Maryland, Ole Miss, Missouri, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.
Pittsburgh Sports Now asked Enos what were the biggest factors in him selecting Pitt.
”I just felt very comfortable with the Pitt coaching staff as I’ve talked with them just about every week and they were with me from the beginning,” said Enos. “That plus the fact that I have family in the Pittsburgh area all made me feel like they were the best and most comfortable spot for me.”
While Enos is happy with his decision, he did admit that this process wasn’t easy as he had to consider many other attractive options.
”It was a good thing to go through but did get a bit hectic with the pandemic and not being able to go on official visits but that was another factor in me choosing Pitt because I was able to visit there and felt very comfortable,” Enos said.
Pitt has been recruiting Enos hard for two years now and he was very impressed with the job Archie Collins and Dave Borbely did selling him on becoming a Panther.
”Coach Archie is a Detroit native and actually went up Cass Tech,” Enos said. “It was nice knowing that I had someone at Pitt from where I’m from. I also was able to talk with Coach Borbely and am excited he’ll be coaching me for the next few seasons.
”I feel like he will really be able to help develop me. At Cass I was playing both tackle and guard and I believe that I’ll be able to be a utility man and play whatever position the team needs me at and Coach Borbely will help me with that and better help me develop my craft.”

Enos says that although it’s not certain, he believes he’ll start his career at Pitt as a tackle. One other thing that excites Enos about his journey to Pittsburgh is that he’ll be joined in the city by another Cass Tech alum in Tyson Acuff, who will be a member of the Duquesne basketball program.
