Solomon Enis will not follow in his father’s footsteps.
The son of former Penn State running back great Curtis Enis and a four-star receiver from Phoenix, Ariz., picked Utah over the Lions, Arizona State, and USC during a ceremony at his high school on Wednesday.
Predictions from the 247Sports’ Crystal Ball flipped wildly into the Utes favor late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, which signaled a major shift in Solomon Enis’ recruitment considering the Lions had long been viewed as the favorite.
That said, things became dicey in recent week as the December signing period came and went, as did the month of January, and Enis did not commit to the Lions despite having them seemingly on top. He even attended the Fiesta Bowl in Penn State gear, but he won’t wear it in college.
The Lions are not empty handed at the position in this cycle, as they signed five-star Justin Shorter and four-stars Daniel George and Jahan Dotson back in December.
As of early Wednesday afternoon, Penn State has 23 Class of 2018 commitments and sits with a top-five class nationally, and the signing group now appears to be complete.
