The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2019 season.
#91 Adetokunbo Ogundeji, DE
In 2018, we saw the most of Ade Ogundeji since he arrived at Notre Dame. He played in all 12 games with 20 total tackles, including a big performance against Florida State where he forced a fumble.
Prior to last year, he played in just five games as a sophomore in 2017 and was on the scout team in 2016.
Ogundeji is a product of West Bloomfield, Michigan. As a high schooler, Ogundeji was a three-star prospect and the no. 100-ranked defensive end by Scout, no. 63-ranked defensive end by ESPN and the no. 42-ranked weak side defensive end by 247 Sports. He enrolled at Notre Dame at just 17 years old and is a design major in the college of arts and letters.
Taylor Swift, Bon Jovi or Chicago
Ogundeji is one step closer to his time in the spotlight and cementing his legacy at Notre Dame with one season left before graduation.
Hey, Dog, HEY!
Loyal, hardworking, and smart, Ogundeji reminds us of a border collie.
The senior will likely see plenty of action once again this season when you consider his body of work and the fact that he looked particularly good in this year’s spring camp. Look for him to get regular work behind Khalid Kareem at the big end spot opposite the Sharks in Julian Okwara and Daelin Hayes.
