Khalid Kareem of Farmington Hills Harrison is ranked the No. 1 defensive end in the state by, but there's another DE in southeast Michigan rising up the recruiting rankings.

Adetokunbo Ogundeji, a 6-5, 220-pound three-star prospect, is getting more attention with every passing week.

The Walled Lake Central product originally committed to Western Michigan, but he too felt he rushed his decision and de-committed.

"I loved the coaches, the players and it feels like a family, but I just felt I rushed it," said Ogundeji of de-committing from WMU. "I certainly haven't ruled them out."

Ogundeji was at Notre Dame Saturday. He received offers from Oregon and Rutgers earlier this month.

"We went to Notre Dame's passing camp and their coaches told us to make sure to bring the big guy (Ogundeji)," Walled Lake Central coach Bob Meyer said. "I wouldn't be surprised if an offer comes from them soon, too.

"He's the real deal. He's just 16 so he should be just going into his junior year, but he'll be a senior. He wears size 18 shoes. He's still growing and he's very athletic."
