Fans of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish know that elite defensive line talent doesn’t just come in droves to South Bend, but we are all hoping to change that year by year. In this class, Notre Dame gets an absolute gem in Jayson Ademilola.
Ademilola has been a four star ranked talent for quite some time, but his stock started going through the roof this past summer as he balled out in camp after camp. He worked hard on different techniques and then applied them to his already powerful frame. The work has paid off and he looks more like a five star type of talent.
It really is hard to say where Ademilola may find himself on the roster this year. It appears that Mike Elko likes a strong rotation on the defensive line, and wasn’t shy about putting freshman in the mix. Of course, things may depend upon certain decisions out of both Jayson’s and Elko’s hands.
Despite having committed to Notre Dame with his brother early in the process, Jayson was pursued heavily from some of the best schools in the country such as the Alabama Crimson Tide, Auburn Tigers, Clemson Tigers, LSU Tigers, and many more that have nothing to do with tigers.
