Ademilola had a career year for the Irish in 2021. He racked up 50 total tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss and 4 sacks. It was his fourth year as a contributor for Notre Dame, but by far his most productive campaign.
For his career, Ademilola has 106 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and 5 sacks. He’s also forced 1 fumble and has 2 pass deflections.
He’ll help lead a defense that’s hoping to be elite once again in 2022. The Fighting Irish will be tasked will replacing All-American safety Kyle Hamilton, but that could be done sooner rather than later. Notre Dame is reportedly hosting Northwestern transfer Brandon Joseph on a visit this weekend.
Notre Dame has won 10+ games in five consecutive seasons. That’s the longest streak in program history.
