Committed: June 4

Scouting report: Adeoye plays with the aggression and violence needed at middle linebacker. He’s an instinctual player who winds up around the football on most plays. The four-star prospect is playmaker at linebacker and is best when allowed to play downhill.

He’s a tackle-to-tackle linebacker with enough speed to chase plays down to the outside. Adeoye prides himself on hard hits and physical plays. He’s strong enough to shed offensive lineman and athletic enough to blitz up the middle. His best trait is his ability to finish tackles.

Adeoye doesn’t miss tackles once he gets hands on the runner and that’s the most important trait a middle linebacker can possess. He’ll need to improve in space as a coverage linebacker.  

The 4-star talent moved to IMG Academy from Missouri as a senior and was credited with 20 tackles in his final prep season. Adeoye was selected to play in the Under Armour All-American Game on Jan. 4 in Orlando.
