Coastal Carolina new home for CFC60 Enock Makonzo

After many sleepless nights thinking about the future, CFC60 Enock Makonzo finally made his dreams come true signing with Coastal Carolina on NCAA Early Signing Day.


You never know where football can take you, and I doubt Makonzo ever envisioned himself wearing a military uniform while practicing a completely different set of formations everyday. New Mexico Military Institute has become a second home for a lot of Canadian talent over the years, and upon graduating from the CEGEP ranks with mixed results, he decided to ask around to find out what NMMI and JUCO football was all about,

“It is rare for us Canadians to end up at Junior College in the USA. Things didn’t really go the way I planned after I was done playing CEGEP, so I made a few calls and found NMMI.” he explains.

Makonzo exploded in his second season at NMMI, leading the team with 71.0 total tackles, and 10 tackles for loss as a defensive back. That’s not something you’re going to see very often, and it’s also tough to find a more versatile athlete that can play multiple positions at a high level. He says his play on film was the main reason he attracted an offer from the Chanticleers,

“The first time I got in touch with Coastal Carolina, I got in contact with the DC during our Thanksgiving break. He asked me to call him and told me that he really liked what he saw on my tape.”

Coastal Carolina also had an offer on the board for CFC100 Kervens Bonhomme before he committed to Indiana, which is pretty good company to keep on any type of list. Makonzo is their firstΒ  Canadian prospect dating back to 2010 when we started tracking every NCAA commit.

The Chanticleers finished this year with a 5-7 overall record, and are one of the newest FBS programs having joined the Sun Belt Conference in 2017.
