South's 16th-Ranked DE Kayode Oladele Takes a Step Back, De-Commits From Florida State

Kayode Oladele, the nation's 43rd-ranked defensive end, de-committed from the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday afternoon.


Miami Edison star and Scout's 43rd-ranked defensive end, Kayode Oladele, has opted to de-commit from Florida State after giving his word to the Seminoles back in February.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Oladele, a three-star prospect who attends Miami Edison, has racked up additional scholarship offers from Miami (Fl)FloridaOregonGeorgiaWisconsinTennessee and South Carolina among others.


Oladele, who racked up 56 tackles and six sacks in just six games this past season, is fairly raw in regards to technique and go-to moves in the trenches, but is a physical specimen who does a good job of turning the corner and playing with relentlessness.

Schools will have to be patient with him, but this is a coachable kid who is equipped with athleticism and an intriguing build. At times he flashes that pop at the point of attack, but learning how to distribute his strength and playing with better technique will help take his craft to the next level.

Oladele, who recently visited Georgia, is also labeled as the 16th-ranked defensive end in the South and seventh-ranked defensive end in Florida.

Stay tuned to Scout for the latest developments in Oladele's recruitment.
