Punt

K kicks ball and bounces on the ground then hits R and goes into the enzone where R picks it up and starts to run out of the enzone where R is hit by K and fumbles in the enzone and is recovered by K. What is the call?

Which direction was it bouncing before it hit R? If it's Fed it doesn't matter, this is still a touchback. In NCAA it might be new force, and then responsibility for putting the ball behind R's goal line could hinge on it -- although that would be immaterial if play continues as described below.

In Fed the status of the ball is still a kick, so it's dead on reaching the plane of the goal line, and a touchback.

In NCAA by the continuation of play described above, it's a touchdown. A player is legally in possession of a ball beyond the opponent's goal line.

NFHS-the ball was dead when it crossed the goal line, touchback. A kick retains the status of a kick until it is either possessed or dead by rule. Force is not a factor because all kicks entering R's end zone are touchbacks.
