“He’s a big, physical and hard-working player, which is what we want in our pack, and someone our fans should be thrilled to see joining the club.”
Leicester were 11th in the Gallagher Premiership table when the season was suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Enever said: “Coming over to the UK and being a part of Premiership rugby while representing a club of Leicester’s standing is an exciting prospect.”
Tigers have also signed England-born back Harry Potter from Super Rugby side Melbourne Rebels.
The 22-year-old, who can play across the wing and centre positions, moved to Australia as a child.
