Three-star helps team back to prominence

Three-star offensive lineman Sean Enesi (5-11, 275, 5.2) from Carson, Calif., first grabbed our attention at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto, Calif., and once again at USC Rising Seniors Camp and the USC Big Man Camp.

It was at the Trojan camps that you saw Trojan offensive line coach Pat Ruel grinning from ear to ear.

Ruel let everyone know that Enesi can't beat and outside one Da'John Harris at the Big Man Camp nobody did and there was a lot of talent at both of these camps.

Though there was a lot of talent at both USC's Camps, Enesi took on all comers and pinned the majority of them.

Enesi took his fine off-season performance into the season and is one of the biggest reasons that the Carson Colts find themselves in the City Section semi-final game.

"Our line is our heart and soul and Sean is a big part of that," Carson coach Mike Christensen said. "He has all the tools to make it on the next level and the only thing that is holding anyone back is height."

"Sean is a great character guy, and a great student with a 4.0 GPA," Christensen said. "There is no downside to Sean. He has outstanding strength, agility and he's a fierce competitor."

Arizona, Cal and Colorado among other Pac 10 and Big 12 schools are showing a lot of interest in Enesi. Utah, Utah State and Harvard are also looking into the Carson offensive center.

There is a good chance that Enesi will be one of those guys who buck the odds and overcomes his lack of height and makes a big impact on the D-I level.

Enesi and his Carson Colts (9-3) have the program back to where it belongs in the thick of the City Section Championship run and will take on San Pedro (11-1) this Friday in the City semi-final.
