Want a daily lap through Georgia football recruiting? That’s what the Intel will bring at least five days a week. We’ll cover the news and which way a prospect like Kingsley Enagbare might lean plus add some perspective to help fans figure out what it all means.


Kingsley Enagbare is all about his business. He holds down a 3.4 GPA and plans to major in business management or real estate management.

The 6-foot-4, 255-poud defensive line prospect hails from the same Hapeville Charter Career Academy program which sent Arden Key to LSU, signed William Poole III to Georgia and has rising senior Chris Smith II in “The League of Shadows” to play in Mel Tucker’s secondary.

He’s an Atlanta boy. What was his dream school growing up?

“It was probably Georgia,” Enagbare told

What are the chances of him being the next Hornet on his way to Athens?

“I like Georgia,” Enagbare said. “So they are up there for me on my list.”

His offer list includes Auburn, Arkansas, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Maryland, N.C. State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wake Forest.

Which schools are the “up there” schools on his list?

“Probably Georgia,” he said. “Probably South Carolina. Georgia Tech. N.C. State. A couple of schools can still get up there but I just want to take some visits to see them first.”

He’s thinking about deciding within a specific timeframe.

“I was thinking probably the last week of spring practice,” Enagbare said. “Probably May 19. But if not then, then probably early in the summer.”

Those four schools he named among his “up there” options are also the programs which are currently recruiting him the hardest. He stated he doesn’t really have a leader yet among those schools.

Enagbare currently rates as a 3-star recruit and as the nation’s No. 18 strong-side defensive end by the 247SportsComposite.

How Georgia would use Kingsley Enagbare 

The Bulldogs have a plan in mind. Enagbare has the skills to play up and down the defensive line.

“They said I could be a strong-side defensive end for the pass rush and sometimes they would put me at a ‘3’ technique,” Enagbare said. “I think I could do both. … I use my athleticism to get around blocks and to get through people.”

Enagbare is a budding artist. He likes to paint in his spare time. How does he feel about that opportunity in Athens?

“I like them a lot,” he said. “It is a good school and an excellent place. I felt welcomed on my visit. It felt nice to be up there at Georgia on a visit.”

Hapeville Charter coach Winston Gordon compared him to a former SEC great that was just selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

“He’s the ‘3’ technique guy,” Gordon said. “That (former Alabama standout) Jonathan Allen type that everybody is looking for in that 3-4 defense. 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. 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.”
