It’s impossible to talk about Justin Ademilola without talking about his twin brother and future teammate with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Jayson Ademilola... but we are going to do it, because Justin is far more than a shadow of his brother.
Justin Ademilola sent his letter of intent to the Irish, and the Irish got more than just another signature - they got a future difference maker on the defensive line. What’s great for the Irish and Justin, is that Notre Dame’s defensive coordinator, Mike Elko, runs a very similar scheme.
That should be music to the ears of everyone involved.

Justin has great strength already, and some college weight room training should be able to enhance his best traits which are playing against the run and applying pressure with power moves inside. Some added quickness could really help him amplify his game off the edge.
Justin had offers all over the country but he chose the Irish instead of programs like the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, Michigan Wolverines, and Georgia Bulldogs (just to list a few of the big ones). A three star grade with a 5 star offer list... I’ll put my money in the coaches stock.
