Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, the nation’s best linebacker in 2020 has played his last snap with the Irish and will set his eyes on the NFL. JOK is a potential first round selection as an edge player, and we expect his combine numbers to jump off the page.
I won’t cry because it’s over, I’ll just smile because it happened. Thank You, Notre Dame. ☘️— J. Owusu-Koramoah (@j_owuu) January 4, 2021

Adetokunbo Ogundeji will follow WU to the NFL Draft this spring. Ade was of those 3-Star project players that worked out extremely well in South Bend. He was named a captain for the Irish in 2020 after flirting with a draft entry last year.
With Ade’s departure, Notre Dame will need to replace both starting defensive ends (Daelin Hayes) but they have been developing a deep rotation over the last several years, and should have the personnel to manage.
The void that Owusu-Koramoah leaves will be similar to what happened when guys like Drue Tranquill and Jaylon Smith left for the draft. It’s going to hurt a little bit, but Notre Dame is still doing a really good job here.
Obviously, we will have more news about transfers and draft entries throughout the week. After the majority of the expected players make their decisions, I’ll have a roster overlook post to see what the team may look like heading into the spring.
