No offense to Ball State, Toledo, Northern Iowa, Bowling Green and Western Michigan, but now that Adeyanju's recruitment has taken off, those schools may well have been taken off the list. Indeed, Rivals.com is reporting that those universities fall in the doomed "Low Interest" category, a distinction that never bodes well.Northwestern, however, hasn't been relegated. And the fact that Adeyanju, a 6-2, 249-pound defensive end, is considering another trip to Evanston – he has already visited campus at least three times – is a boon for the Wildcats in the increasingly cluttered quest for Adeyanju's services.
The three-star defensive end, who attends Curie High School, confirmed to Purple Reign on Tuesday that he has tentative plans to visit Evanston next month. "I'm going to go up there on a visit sometime next month maybe," he said.When asked what he'd be looking for on a potential trip to Evanston, Adeyanju said, "Just how a regular day is on campus. Hang out with some of the players a little bit more."
That Adeyanju has travel plans is nothing new. Last week he visited Michigan State and Michigan – each of which has offered – and the week before he visited Illinois. Oh, and the week before that he was in Madison.All told, Adeyanju says that he holds 22 offers. Nebraska, Arizona and Colorado, along with all those schools he recently visited, are among those to have offered.
Adeyanju said that he talks to Northwestern coaches often, adding, "They're all great guys."Adeyanju obviously has a lot to think about, and he plans to wait until December to make a decision.
In the meantime, his campus tour plows on.
