One of the unknowns that Florida Football took during the last recruiting cycle was Noel Portnjagin. The 6'5" and 322 pound offensive lineman out of Germany is the very definition of taking on a project with high upside if he pans out.

Billy Napier has gone back to the project well as the Gators got word last night that another large bodied athlete from England is going to make his way to Gainesville.

Florida Football: Across The Pond

Enoch Wangoy is a 6'5" and 280 pound two-way lineman out of Manchester, England. He moved to Jacksonville at 16 and plays for the Zarephath Academy Eagles, a non FHSAA affiliated school.

Wagnoy possess a seven foot wingspan, something that rivals players in the NFL, and played a vast array of sports growing up including basketball and soccer.

He only recently started playing football and it easy to see why Napier would take Wangoy on as a project. On film he is a giant, which isn't too shocking given the level of competition he faces. But for someone that just started out in the sport, he's not afraid to throw his weight around and let you know that he is the biggest player on the field.

But given his background in basketball and soccer, he is also agile and not just a stationary body waiting for contact to come his way.

Wagnoy is not the type of prospect Napier and crew should count on to save the day and need to keep pushing for other prospect that are on their big board. But there is an upside to Wagnoy that makes it worth bringing aboard.

At his worst, he at least provides a big body for practice purposes who won't be a pushover. But if he pans into something more, Napier will look like a genius.
