Notre Dame commit and No. 11 DT Jayson Ademilola in action at The Opening Regional

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Notre Dame commit Jayson Ademilola in 1-on-1s during the Opening Regional.

Notre Dame commit Jayson Ademilola was invited to The Opening Finals after a strong performance at the regional event at the New York Jets' practice facility.

His quick hands, burst and technique -- all visible in the cut-ups in the media player above -- are the reason schools like Alabama and Ohio State continue to recruit him heavily despite his commitment to the Irish.

The Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep standout measured in at 6-foot-3, 290 pounds, and he had an impressive day. He exploded well at the snap, used a variety of moves (swim, rip, club, speed), and he was able to remain low. His feet were quick and he changed direction with speed. He set up the offensive linemen well, sometimes feigning to go one way, sticking his foot in the ground and cutting the other way.

Ademilola's performance comes in the midst of an impressive offseason, and as a result his national ranking rose from No. 207 to No. 122. His positional rank rose from No. 19 to No. 11.
